My earliest memories have my cousin John in them. Memories of walking to the center of Williston Park NY for slot car racing. This was during the ‘60s slot car racing craze. John had a great slot car! Or of going down to Wheatley school to raise havoc. I remember when he was in Saigon for a year during the Vietnam War. He will be missed.
