Eddie Sisco graduates

After Eddie’s automobile accident, we were not sure how much he would be able to achieve. A key milestone was graduating high school and walking across the stage (with Mr. Mitchell’s help) to receive his diploma.

From my IBM Scrapbook

3 01 2015

I began my career with IBM back in the late 1970’s when small and mid-size companies were buying their first computer. It was an exciting time called the “mini-computer days”.

One of the things I remember most was the great fun we had at IBM amidst some very hard work and long hours. It was a great experience where I learned the value of “working hard and playing hard”.

You may be experiencing some of the best time of your career right now. You owe it to yourself to capture a few memories along the way.

Here are a few photos from my IBM days:

This is what it’s all about, , , my two senior mentors who helped me so much in my early career are on both sides as I receive a Regional IBM Manager’s Award.

Charles Carroll and Jim Cockerham influenced my career considerably and I’ll always owe them a huge debt of gratitude.

Tom Smith gives Eddie golf lessons

3 01 2015

After Eddie’s auto accident in 1993, Tom Smith (Head Pro at Horseshoe Bend) gave him golf lessons to try and help with his recovery.

Eddie had just turned 16 about a month prior to his accident and already had a 3 handicap. Tom was a great friend of Eddie’s and was always trying to help him improve his golf game.
