    I was a kid of 10-11 years old in 1954 when I lived next door to Lindy. He was a quiet unassuming guy who had 3 daughters. Since I was a ‘guy’ he often threw the football with me and talked sports, never once talking about his gold in 1952. He coached track at Hartford high school for years. It was his wife June who showed me the gold medal. At that time I did not think too much of it, but how many of us can say that we were neighbors with an Olympic champion?
