To all the families and friends at the
port authority: Today I received a postcard saying the Port
Authority is turning 100. My husband Joseph Gemellaro worked for the
Port Authority for many years. He started as an electrician and then
became a chief maintenance supervisor. He worked at the Lincoln Tunnel
and then later at the Bayonne Bridge,Goethals Bridge, and Outerbridge
Crossing. He also was a Union Representative.
Unfortunately he passed away 10 years ago
. However, I would like to say as the wife of a Port Authority employee,
we had many wonderful years. The Port Authority had family picnics,
Christmas festivities, the men played baseball together and had bowling
We made many good friends and enjoyed the
parties. As a wife and mother of three children, I felt secure because
The Port gave us good benefits and a secure income. I'm sure my husband
would have had many more memories and stories. All I can say is thank
you for the nice memories.
