Moffett: “I left Penn State on a Sunday in mid March1962 and on Wednesday I was in the Army at Fort Dix. After training as a radio operator, I was stationed in Vicenza, Italy in the Army Security Agency. I purchased a Fiat sports car and made many trips to Venice, Italy and got to see a lot of Italy, Austria and Germany, especially for October Fest. In March 1964 I returned to the states and was discharged. I started working in Cleveland, Ohio with General Electric Lamp Division. In 1970 I was offered a position in Los Angeles as the Studio Engineer calling on the motion pictures and TV studios. After a couple of years, I took a new job as an engineer with a company in the Aerospace industry. Also spent 3 years at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory working on several satellite programs. Then I took employment with Hughes Space and Communication Co. in El Segundo working on the designs of solar arrays for satellites.  I retired in May 2000.
I got married in Cleveland to my wife, Carolyn, in 1965. She had never been west of the Mississippi until I took her to LA. She passed away in 2010.
We had 2 children; Kenneth and Sharon.  Sharon has 2 children, Scott (16) and Karlie (13). They live locally so I see the a lot and really enjoy their love. Kenneth passed away this year.”
