No doubt we met each other at some point, although your name doesn't ring a bell at the moment (which happens a lot lately). Wayne (never liked the nickname "Dudley") and I started to lose touch with each other in our later teens. As a result I barely knew his wife, much less his kids. We'd run into each other at places like the Thru-Way Diner, catch up on old times, then go our separate ways. But always with fond memories. I moved to Florida during the early 70's, so we saw each other even less. You may remember that Wayne's father died young - I believe he was in his early forties - also his brother Terry. Heart conditions. I worried that Wayne would go the same way, since the three of them were very similar physically. But I recall that he was on a heart medicine when we last visited. As it turned out, he did pretty well compared to his dad and brother Terry - lasting into his 70's. Not bad, all things considered. You may also recall that his brother Jay became a VP at 7-Up, the DC office. I went to grammar school (Holy Family) with all the 7-Up people, including the Mudd's, McCan's, Parilla's, and others. Good Catholics; big families!
If you happen to know Ronny Lalli, then you know what I look like; Ronny and I were often mistaken for each other during our teens - although we didn't know each at the time. When we finally did meet up, we shared a natural affinity because we looked so much alike, and because so many people thought I was him, and him me

. The last time I saw Ronny he was a blackjack dealer (his dream job) in Caesar's Palace (Las Vegas). That would've been the later 70's. Anyway, though I'd mention it.
I'm sure this is a small world. Just found this blod and can't stop reading. I worked for Wayne as a part time bartender for a short time before beginning a forty five year career in the moving business at Neptune. Went to HFS. Wayne was a great guy and I never saw him loose a wrestling match in grammar school. Stopped in from CA last year and chatted with Electra. Did I just read that she has since past? Any one remember Kity Davis friend Eva? Chris Meyers do you recall Terry Ohara?

Growing up as a next door neighbor of the Davis family I have seen every member of the Davis family mentioned here except Noel. The last time I visited with Wayne a few years ago at Dudz Bar he told me Noel had moved north to Maine, I think but CRS has set in so Im not sure of the location. Does anyone know where Noel Davis is ? If I remember right I think he said Kitty was living in or near Mount Kisco with her family.

I heard recently from an old Davis friend and neighbor that Noel is currently living in Florida (didn't mention where), and having a few health problems.
And regarding Wayne's "wrestling" abilities, I can tell you first hand that Wayne was one tough customer. And often the target of guys looking to get even. Scroll back a bit to read a few details.

Things changed in ways we never expected. Who could have imagined going down Main Street and NOT seeing the Thruway Diner. And NOT hearing the old-world Italian dialect spoken on every street corner along Union Avenue. Or getting a "wedge" from one of the dozen or so family delis. Even Woolworth's, and Grant's, and Thursday nights - gone forever. And gone is Alan Freed on the radio (WINS-1010AM!) playing Rock'n'Roll and hawking tickets to the Brooklyn Paramount (a bunch of us went with our girlfriends – it seemed EVERY rock'n'roller under the sun was there, too! Also the cops… running up and down the isles trying to keep us kids from dancing! And the bone-jarring music, Jerry Lee Lewis, what a blast!)
Meanwhile, now I visit New Rochelle sitting in an easy-chair using Google’s street-view. And there I also see how little some things have changed. Like my old neighborhood, the house where I grew up – they look pretty much the same as they did 50 or 60 years ago. In fact, by outward appearances the only thing that has changed is you (i.e. me)! And that stranger sitting on my porch, and the strange car in my driveway. And me sitting at home a thousand miles away, who could have ever imagined it…

<quoted text>Hi JUDY, i also hung out with Gorge, Denny Barret, went to Blessed Sacrament, then Washington School.Denny and I also went to Isaac Young, but because he was so small in the 5th grade, they kept him back a year. Hard to believe as good a football player he was. I talked to George's brother a few years back, didn't know George had passed. He gave me a rash, telling me I didn't know George. Anyone who know's me from the 40's-to the 50's who hung with them guys sure knew me.So it's ok. George was a great guy when I was growing up with him
Denny is my closest friend. He did go to Stevenson but never attended BS.

Rich, if you are close to Denny Barrett, mention my name, to him, frankie nacarato, I'm really sure about him and BSS. If
I'm wrong, I'm losing it, but I think not. just ask him please. I remember the day at pe at,IEY, when he kicked the football so high, it went outta sight, and Pete Accocella said we need this guy...Last I heard he was coach at Mnsr. Farrell HS, on Statin Island. And that was over 35 years ago..

Frankie,

I exchanged comments with you about a year or so back re Winged Foot, and Jimmy DeRario a fellow caddy and Stepinac classmate. I went to BSS for Kdg. in 1951 and then moved to North Pelham. I know that you are several years my senior and don't know when you left NR.
As a teen, I used to matriculate up to and through West New Rochelle for Italian Ice and such. One Sunday while avoiding church, I was safariing with my buddies through WNR. We came upon a fire truck by a park in front of which lay a black leather clad body in the street. Wrapped around a tree was a '57 Chevy. The body was that of Frank Veltri, a notorious NR "tough guy."It was an eerie sight watching them hose the blood down the gutter. This was probably circa 1962-63. Wonder if you may have known him and of his death. He used to be compared with some of the Mt. Vernon thugs - who was the "roughest"?, the term that we used in those days. Just curious.

Hey, Eddie, I was back and forth to Florida, during that time,think I missed it. The par was probably by Columbus School. I knew a Pete Veltri. Also them guys your talking about in Mt.Vernon, were probably part of the Mt.Vernon Baldies, a real rough group.I hung out wit Johnny Vaccarro, I started at BSS, in '47, we didn't have a kindergarten then. My first grade teacher was, M Catherine Marie, who eventually became principle.

In your time at Joyce 7up do you remember Joe Mahnken.
he was a computer operator, Danny Enright, Frank Jahn or Donnie Watt. They all worked there in the mid to late 60's and beyond.

Frankie! I have never forgiven you for the black eye you gave me sometime in the late '50's. Emile Salerno from the Main St Dairy thought it was hilarious which deepened my humiliation.

What happen to all of those guys you mentioned in your post of Oct 18?

I remember Dan Enright, Frank Jahn and also John Egan.
I also remember one wild night at Buzzy and Dicks that two rowing shell oars and a Musket rifle that were wall decorations at B&D wound up in my corvette in front of my house on Fifth Ave, with little memory of how they got there. I dropped them off early the next am on the outside wall of B&D.
