I grew up in a family of 3 brothers in Cleveland, Ohio. While attending Cleveland State University I met my wife, Ann, and we were both saved (in Christ) while in college. After graduation, I served in the US Air Force as a Weapon Systems Officer, with over 700 flight hours in F-4 Phantom aircraft. Since leaving the Air Force I have held many roles, mostly in quality management and project management, and have spent the last 17 years at Medtronic, a medical device manufacturer, in Fridley, MN.
Ann and I have raised 2 wonderful children and we now also have 2 lovely grandchildren. My hobbies include fishing, camping, mineral collecting and lapidary work. We live in White Bear Lake, Minnesota, attending Rockpoint Church in Lake Elmo, Minnesota, where I have served as a deacon, usher, and Life Group leader.
My favorite Bible verse is from Joshua, 24:15: ”…But as for me and my house, we shall serve the Lord.”
