About the Book
Alfred J. Marcus, born June 17, 1931, to first-generation Americans, grew up poor but happy in 1930s and ‘40s Newark, New Jersey. When Al was a baby, the Depression hit hard. His parents lost their house and had to move the family often. By the time Al entered Weequahic High School, he had lived in a variety of apartments and houses in multiple parts of town, and had attended many of the Newark public schools. He therefore had made many friends, and very fond childhood memories of playing sports in the streets and getting into innocent mischief.
After serving in the US Air Force in Florida, Germany, and Morocco, Al returned home and worked hard, supporting himself while earning his college degree and CPA. Over the years, he applied his self-drive and business acumen to achieving success. In his personal life, he did the same, merging with his beloved wife, raising their family together, and now enjoying their great-grandchildren.
Al is a man who knows how to live, and this is the story of his life.
