In Memoriam...A father passes on Father's Day

Donald James Wickwire
January 29, 1921 - June 17, 2007


Visiting NYC while in the military during WWII


Worked for Corning Glass Works and he was an engineer during & prior to the early days of telecommunication at General Electric, Weston Instrument Company, & Digitronics. I also thought of him as a farmer since he kept a large garden in the small north central New York rural town where we owned 50 acres.


Age 84, retired in Florida.

He died in his sleep in his easy chair in his home where he lived with his son (my brother). He had 5 children (4 daughters), 17 grandchildren, and 7 great-grandchildren.
