David B. Black: A Life Story

By David B. Black

“We had a nice bringing up. Oh yeah. Port Chester was a small town, working class — everybody knew everybody. I remember bringing up coal from the cellar for the stove in the kitchen and another stove in the living room. Nathan, my older brother, and I spent a lot of time seeing that we always had enough coal in the coal bins for the fireplace in the kitchen and the living room. I remember them putting in electric wires in our house. Before that, you had to light a match to light the mantle, and a gas light would go on.”

One of the Greatest Generation, David B. Black gives us a first-hand account of what it was like to live through some of this country’s most harrowing events and provides us with sage advice. He recounts his life growing up in Port Chester, NY, his Jewish heritage, living through the Great Depression of 1929, going to college and training in R.O.T.C. in Arkansas, and getting drafted by the air force. Upon his return to civilian life, he joined Alexander’s Department Store, where he eventually became the men’s ware merchandise manager, and settled down with his newlywed in Bergenfield, NJ, where they raised two children.

Eventually, following her death, he had to start all over again. He retired and remarried in Yardley, PA, and tells what it’s like to be on dialysis for 13 years and how he became a successful watercolor artist. 7 inches X 9 inches. 101 pages.
