About Me
I was born in Santo Thomas Hospital in Panama City.  My parents & grandparents worked for the Panama Canal Company & we lived on the Canal Zone.  From birth to age 5 (1944 - 50) we lived in the Balboa Gavlin area on Cacao Street (in those day before the bridge our house was on Panamá bay), next we moved to Balboa in "the flats" on Carr St. from 1950 - 54, in 1954 we moved to Los Rios & were the first family to occupy the house we lived in.  In 1960 I left the PCZ with my grandparents to live in Panama City, FLORIDA where my uncle was a doctor.  I attended 11th & 12th grade & graduated from Bay County High School in 1962.  Since then I have been back to Panamá many times.
