I was raised in a family of mixed descent, with my father coming from first generation Sicilian parents, and my mother from several generations of Yankee stock.
We grew up in a family that prided itself on education and knowing how to hold a fork properly. Summers were spent on the Cape, and the other seasons were used to learn everything from algebra to dancing the Lindy.
I was married in 1985 and had many great years as a father and husband. But in 2005 we both became single again. I have met a number of truly wonderful and interesting women, but have chosen to remain unmarried. My ex-wife Laura is literally right around the corner from me living with a very good man. We get along great but give each other the space we need.
My children are my main focus, even though they are needing my attention less and less as they take responsibility over their lives. But I am fortunate to still have two of them nearby so I can feel like a father from time to time.
Like many people, I see my role as a father as an obligation I happily take on.
