Year of Graduation
What have you done since graduating from Port Allegany High School?
I married Karen Crowley Hawver (Class of 1974) and we had two boys, Kyle and Kerry. Both are married and have given us four grandchildren between the two families.
I worked my way up through the maintenance department of Pittsburgh Corning to plant maintenance superintendent until my job was eliminated in November of 2009.
I coached junior varsity football for eight years and junior high for two years in the Port Allegany School District. After coaching, I officiated football in the local chapter for ten years while assisting the football program by helping the stat crew keep football stats, retiring from the stat crew after the 2014 season.
I am a past president of Port Allegany United Fund, Port Allegany Lions Club, and Port Allegany Baseball Association. I am a past scoutmaster of troop 561 and served as cubmaster for pack 561.
Having fully retired now, I enjoy travel, gardening, fishing, camping, genealogy, photography, and the list keeps growing.
Where do you currently live?
Who was your favorite teacher in high school? Why were they your favorite?
Cy Dann was my favorite faculty member. His son Jeff and I are classmates, and I got to know Cy better than the other faculty. Collectively, the history teachers gave me a love for history, which continues today.
What is your fondest memory of Port Allegany High School?
Basketball was my favorite memory of school. We were successful and they were great teammates. I also enjoyed the choir, drama, and the other sports. We participated in all extracurricular activities offered by the school and they have good memories in their own right.
