My Family and Relatives
This page is to share with everyone some personal things in my life.
Hello everyone, I would like to invite you to view our personal family relations and other scenes from my personal life. I have been living in Reno since 1988, when my wife and I decided that we wanted to live up in the clean air and small town life. Unfortunately, Reno has experienced a major explosion in population, so the small-town atmosphere is slowly slipping away. We would like to move to a warmer climate, but that's in the future.
The lovely woman pictured below with yours truly is my wife, Carol. We have been married for 19 years and have 5 "children", (cats to you), and live in a lovely apartment in Reno, NV. We love to dine out and visit with friends from the church we attend. We are both retired and enjoying the good life. The picture below was taken by my brother Paul. We were standing in the parking lot of the Boomtown Casino, in December, 2005.
Carol loves Merry-Go-Rounds
Carol enjoys riding the merry-go round at
Boomtown Casino, and when her brother-
in-law Paul, is in town, she likes to talk
him into taking her out there.

My Mother, Betty Marlin-DeVincentis
My Grandparents, Charles and Twila Grove
My grandfather and grandmother, Charles, and grandmother Twila Grove, lived in Brighton Township, Pa., until their deaths. I also have a uncle, Austin, (deceased); his wife, Winnie, and their daughters, Susie and Amy, who reside in Pennsylvania. I also have numerous cousins who reside throughout the U.S. My father's parents both passed away before I was born, and there are no pictures of the two of them.
