Bill, Ruth, and Their Family
Bill and Ruth met on a blind double date in 1950.
We dated at Middlebury, but not seriously because there were other girls involved, too. When I was in the Marine Corps, she wrote me just about every single day, particularly on Parris Island which was not the happiest days of my life, but, I survived.
And we were married in May of Nineteen Hundred and Fifty Four. We have four children, and three grandchildren.
