My dad was born in Hammond Indiana in 1922, the year after the Bears won their first World Championship in 1921. Dad was a Chicago Bears fan all of his life, I followed in his footsteps.
Transfered here with IBM. I have worked for most of the telecommunications business in RTP since I moved here in 1993. I have worked a total of 20 years for IBM, Nortel Networks, MCI/Worldcom, and Verizon.
I represent 5 generations Chicago football. My dad's sister married the son of Hammond Clabbys owner. In 1919, George Halas joined the reorganized Hammond Pros as wide receiver, left for the Decatur Staleys 1920, which became Chicago Bears 1921.
A very friendly group of former Chicagoans. I enjoyed seeing everybody again. I look forward to seeing everyone again. We may be displaced from Chicago but we all have a home with our "Chicago Bears Fan Club of the Triangle".
