-- Why he moved from St. Lawrence County to Greenwich, and four months later to Glens Falls, in 1974: “I was in the Book of the Month Club, and I got the book, ‘Buttes Landing’ by Jean Rikhoff. ... It just struck me, and I said, ‘So that’s where I wanted to go.’”

-- His work as an activities director at Eden Park Nursing Home in Glens Falls from 1974-1985: “I would say I’m there not because everyone is dying. They’re not dying. I’m helping them to finish life.”

-- The “I Love Ike” tie bar that he wore at Monday’s reception, which he frequently wore when he was director of social entertainment and theater at Sagamore Resort in Bolton Landing from 1986-’89: “I used to wear it all the time at the Sagamore because the owners at that time were the Wolgins and Ike Wolgin was his son. And I would wear it and everyone would laugh. I have a collection of tie clasps, because I have a collection of everything.”

-- Coordinating the nationally televised “Mickey Luce Day Olympic Torch Pageant” at Glens Falls Civic Center in 1980: “We had a huge band. And then we had a full chorus of over 1,000 kids. We did ‘America the Beautiful.’”

-- Retirement as executive director of Charles R. Wood Theater in 2012: “And it’s not my funeral. It’s only the start of something new.”
