He Was a Benson Driver in 1952

In 1952, I had the privilege of being a Rose Festival driver from Benson High School. I drove dignitaries in a four door Road Master Buick Sudan.

In 2002, I was co-chairman (with Gene Katke) of our 50th reunion of Rose Festival drivers. Four drivers out of nine showed up.

My brother Wayne Corah was also a driver in 1958.

I turned out to be a plumber and worked in the field for 42 years. I've been married to Mary for 50 years. Life has been good to us! We have four children: one fireman, a nurse, a teacher and a post lady -- and for in-laws we have cops, a respiratory therapist, an REI supervisor and a chemist. We also have 11 grandchildren -- one is in the Navy (soon to be 21), and serving our country with pride.
