Toritto – A Life in Pictures

I have lots of photos, hundreds in fact, mostly not organized and just stashed away for years in boxes, stored closets and garages.  Many are pictures not seen even by my daughters.  Many  are of family who were gone before they were born.  Many are of me.

I am rapidly approaching my 75th birthday in September and with the coming of this milestone I’ve decided to document my life  in pictures.  So I am going to bore you with pictures of me and the major events of my life in chronological order, a few photos at a time from the stored boxes.

And thus my presence on this earth will be forever enshrined in the ether of the net world.

Doing my bit against Fascism – 1943

Cute boy!

August 30, 1945 – Almost 3!

Outside my home in Brooklyn

Outside of my maternal grandfather’s “latticini freschi” – his Italian dairy store.

About toritto

I was born during year four of the reign of Emperor Tiberius Claudius on the outskirts of the empire in Brooklyn. I married my high school sweetheart, the girl I took to the prom and we were together for forty years until her passing in 2004. We had four kids together and buried two together. I had a successful career in Corporate America (never got rich but made a living) and traveled the world. I am currently retired in the Tampa Bay metro area and live alone. One of my daughters is close by and one within a morning’s drive. They call their pops everyday. I try to write poetry (not very well), and about family. Occasionally I will try a historical piece relating to politics. :-)

    Never boring, Frank. In fact the opposite, a real joy.
    Looking forward to more.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    Against fascism way back then. And you’ve kept it up all this time. Not a bad effort.

    Ah, innocence! Indeed, a cute boy! Obviously, well looked after and loved. And to think that you turned out as you did, Frank! 😉
