Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Michael Bafaro


What has Mike been doing since graduating with the LTHS class of 1963? This is Mike’s retirement edition.

First Mike attended LTJC for pre-engineering and accumulated 60 semester hours. Mr. Hunt’s engineering physics class was memorable to say the least.

Then in January 1966 he transferred to Bradley University in Peoria to continue to work on his BS in electronics engineering. Mike’s best memories were working at the Audio Visual center where he helped fix a number of pieces of equipment and show the Saturday evening movie at the student center (“A patch of Blue”) when the film broke 4 times… Then I had the pleasure of producing the audio for the synchronized swim team the “Aquadettes”. And finally in my last semester I was the technical manager of the campus radio station WRBU. This was a blast working with my assistants and all of the DJs. Keeping the station on the air was a ton of fun for me. I almost didn’t want to leave. In January of 1969 he graduated with his BSEET degree.

At that time the Vietnam War was going full tilt and there was no lottery. Mike decided to enlist in the Navy because there was a good chance at staying out of the shooting war.

Mike served as an electronics technician for 3 yrs and 9 months in the USN. Mike’s first assignment was at Great Lakes for some more school!? Then in the fall of 1969, I got orders to the DASH training unit at a base just south of Virginia Beach VA. This was for a small drone helicopter that was used for anti-submarine warfare. I got to know the tech rep from the company that made the radar system we used and he helped me stay in Va. Beach for the rest of my tour. In December of 1972 I was discharged and went back to LaGrange.

In January of 1973 I started working at Motorola and I retired on August 31st 2010. I worked in a number of departments. The first was the contract auto radio department. Then my longest run was in the Display Systems group where I worked on designing a number of TV monitors. I also worked in an IC design group, and a cellular base station design group. My last position was in a land mobile design group that produces police and fire dispatch base radios. On August 31st 2010 I will retire from Motorola.

In September of 1977 I married my wife Kathy and we have been together since. We moved to Schaumburg Illinois in 1980. Kathy is about to complete 23 years at Wendy’s. She enjoys our mixed bowling league and women’s softball in the summer.

We have one daughter Jennifer who attended Schaumburg HS. In March of 2001 their basketball team went to state and in the quarter finals they played – you guessed it LTHS and with one second left on the clock Schaumburg won. They went on to take the state tile that year.

In the fall of 2001 Jennifer went of to Bradley as a multimedia major. She graduated in May of 2005 magma cum laude! Dad is proud.

Jennifer had her first job at Infinity Recourses in Itasca as a print designer. Jennifer won a contest to design a new company logo. Her design is now on the official letter head.

Jennifer started a Clear Channel Outdoor in April 2010 and is now working on bill boards in the Chicago area. Clear Channel was one of her first choices for a job when she graduated from Bradley in 2005.

On August 31 of 2010 Mike retired from Motorola with 37 ½ years of service as a Senior Staff Engineer. Mike’s first month of retirement has been very busy with a number of projects around the house.
