Joe Daurril, webmaster emeritus


Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: JOE7CARDRaised during WWII on Chicago's then impoverished Near North Side, Joe attended Holy Name Cathedral's (also on FB) grammar school, where he was among those confirmed in 1949 by Samuel Cardinal Stritch. Winning an entrance scholarship to the University of Chicago in 1954, family economic issues precluded his actual pursuit of it.


Following a 3-year pre-Vietnam tour in electronic countermeasures with the USAF, 1965 saw him initiate a career in data processing under LBJís Manpower Redevelopment Act. Several times a Manager-Programmer and/or Systems-Programmer with IBM typically in academic environments, his work with mainframes ended in the early 80's. He had been actively involved in Tampa's Public Access since its inception (click photo), until TBCNís management disenfranchised City producers.


As a cradle Catholic recently received into the Episcopal Church, he hopes he may continue to extend his devotion to the more Protestant elements of his earlier ecclesial affiliation.


An only child with no living kin, Sunday morning at St Andrewís provides him a singular opportunity for the vicarious enjoyment of family life. Joe has recently been a full-time senior auditing HCCís Computer Science offerings, striving to maintain and improve currency in his also adopted avocation.


In addition to serving this community as its webmaster, he is open to the prospect of actual sometime computer-related employment somewhere.
