CAPTAIN AL PILVINIS

I was born in Great Neck, July 13, 1930. I lived in the house I was born in until 1975, at 2 Pilvinis Drive. I attended Arrandale School, and went to GNHS North from which I graduated in 1948, and I was also working for Barrow Radio. In July I started to attend trade school in New York, American Radio Institute, to learn more about this new thing  called television. I did a 2-year course in 1.5 years and then opened my own store, at the Corner of Fairview and Middle Neck road in the Old village. I branched into Marine Electronics, and did most of the two-way radio work for the Town of North Hempstead, and ended up going into pocket pagers and public address systems. Nassau Radio was my business until I sold it in 1970, and retired from this thing called the economy. I was married in 1955 to Jean Pekins and we had one son, Albert born in 1961. We divorced in 1974 and I came to Florida where I found the absolute love of my life, and have been living happily ever after. I’ve always been in boating, and had requests for charters to the Keys, or Bahamas.  my web-site: http://hom e.earthlink .net/~your captain/
