The latest interview gives us an insight into the life of 57-year-old Grosse Ile resident and Police Chief, Joe Porcarelli.
What was life like for you as a young boy growing up on Grosse Ile?
I grew up on O’Donnell Drive before it was really built up. The area around us was heavily wooded, and I remember spending much of the time when I wasn’t in school wandering through the forest with my friends. We would come home for meals, but then be back outside again playing in the woods. To my mind, it was an idyllic childhood.
