I am Norbert E Gnadinger, Sr. I was born in Louisville, Kentucky to my Mom and Pop, Mary Catherine and Frank Gnadinger. I was educated in the Catholic school system, attended St. Xavier H.S., and received my High School diploma at Ahrens Trade H.S. I was married to a wonderful girl, Helen Buchter, in 1939 when we were both eighteen years old. After serving in the Navy as a Storekeeper during World War II, I took advantage of the G.I. Bill of Rights and enrolled at the University of Louisville where I received a Bachelor of Science Business Degree. During this period, I was hired at Tube Turns Inc. - a manufacturer of steel pipe fittings - as a Receiving Clerk. I eventually became a Maintenance Clerk, Senior Industrial Engineer, Production Foreman, Production Control Supervisor and, before my retirement, the title of Nuclear Process Engineer in the Nuclear Bellows Department. When I was very young, I was intrigued with my Aunts and Uncles and I listened very carefully to whatever they were saying during our picnics, home visits and reunions - I had no Grandparents because they had all died before my birth. I had a very good memory and even today, I can visualize those meetings of family members as though it happened yesterday., Later in life when I thought these memories would have some importance, I began a continuing process of writing memory notes. I also saved as many photos of our relatives as I could. I didn't think this was all so important until I was already retired from my job and in my seventies. Members of my family began to encourage me to write some essays about my interesting life and, as I began this task, I soon realized that just an essay was not sufficient. It would eventually have to become a book. The one book then became three books. Near this point in time a computer became the perfect instrument while writing history. Yes, my book became a history of my life; a genealogical survey of my family; a geographical study of the United States and other areas that my wife Helen and I had visited; and a look back at the development of our lifestyle and of the many items that continued to change and improve as they were accepted and did change our lifestyles - things that my Grandparents and ancestors could not even dream would become commonplace in their lives. One very good example would be the computer that changed my lifestyle so completely and, if you will, "electronics." Please read my book and absorb the hundreds of things I mention that are still changing, for the better (?), almost daily.
