After taking 6 years to get through 4 years of engineering school (Hey, it was the late 60's and there other things to do), a stint in the Army and a year on unemployment, I finally landed a job at Ft. Monmouth doing Gov't spook work (sorry, no UFO's or alien autopsies). Progressing very rapidly up through the Gov't ranks, I moved to New Hampshire where 2 of my children were born while I worked at MITRE in Burlington, MA. I quit the Gov't after 10 years rather than do the Washington DC thing, joining a small telecommunications start-up in Philadelphia with VERY big ambitions and little money. Moved to Voorhees, NJ where the kids were raised while my team in Philly and San Diego developed the world's first commercial digital cellular radio, along with hundreds of very basic patents. The world eventually found out they really wanted what we had and the rest is history. The company now has a $3B market cap and $600M annual revenue.

I have some friends who live in Jupiter and my brother Charlie winters every year right next door in Palm Beach.

Brian Kiernan has left an In Memory comment for Ric Canning.
Sep 19, 2014 at 12:33 AM

What i most remember about Ric was the old '51 Ford that he had chopped up till it should not have even run, let alone be on the road.  Another aspect of him was his avocation towards skydiving.  He was one of the earliest jumpers I knew. Several of us went with him during one of his first jumps and his main chute didn't open.  He pulled the reserve, but then the main also opened.  That meant he had no effective control.  He ended up landing in a lake about 3 miles from the target.  He had to walk back to the jump site.  We didn't see him for hours.  When he showed up he had a big smaile on his face.

 

Terri,

I also remember Jimmy Scuiter, primarily from St. Teresa.  I'm pretty sure he was the first person from Summit to die in Vietnam.  I remember his funeral at St Teresa's Church.  It was huge.  Virtually everyone in Summit turned out.
