Found Foto – 1970s Bowling Team

Frank Tifft (far right).

I recently found this photo of my father-in-law’s (dad) Pratt & Whitney Aircraft (West Palm Beach, Florida) bowling team from the early to mid-1970s. My dad is the handsome gent on the far right. These guys won many championships and trophies during their heyday. My wife’s dad just passed away at 88 years old – we will miss his smile, companionship, and love.

BTW, these guys were true “rocket scientists” as they designed and built some of America’s biggest and best jet and rocket engines. My dad was responsible for making critical welds on the engines for the SR-71 and NASA’s Space Shuttle booster rockets. He was only one of a few that were certified on such technical and difficult welds. He was also an Air Force veteran from the Korean War stationed in the Tokyo, Japan area during the war.

Thanks for stopping by and remember to hug your loved ones as often as you can. – Chris
