About me

Gender MALE
Industry Engineering
Occupation retired principle design process engineer
Location Bradenton, Florida, United States
Introduction I am a retired principle engineer and a Vietnam Veteran. While in Vietnam I was assigned to the 170th Assault Helicopter Company, where I served as crew chief on a "huey". Not long after I retired and moved to Florida, I became extremely ill. My illness resulted in me being disabled. Candle making has been a distraction, enabling me to manage my pain. I have an outdoor studio, and a large backyard filled with many feathered vocal residents. My outdoor studio makes a lot of sense for me as I have always been active in outdoor activities. I am able to work all but a few days during the year. Sometimes it is just too cold to make candles. My stores "Candles by Donald" are open all the time, and easy to get to. An excellent poem to read that describes the job I did while a crew chief in Vietnam, I was "a man in the doorway" here is the link
