Gerald F. Sweeney, a native of the Midwest, spent most of his time on earth living on Long Island. An army veteran and graduate of Michigan, his business life was consumed by commuting to Manhattan’s madcap magazine world where he overworked in various capacities including Publisher. Energized by JFK, he made a seven-year detour into the political life of Huntington, NY and Washington, DC.
His sporadic attempts to publish have included pieces in LI, the Sunday supplement of Newsday, the Chattahoochee Review, True, Long Island, Madison Avenue, the East Hampton Star and the NY Times Op-Ed Page. He is blessed with three children, seven grandchildren, and seven great grandchildren.
