The Man... The Myth... The Legend...

Are you ready for... The Reality?


Our ruggedly handsome hero was born in Minot ND. After about a week, he and his family emigrated to Washington State where he spent his infancy and toddler years in Washtucna and Spokane, his preschool through early elementary years in Pasco, later elementary through high school in Goldendale, and his college and early career years in Ellensburg. After marrying the most remarkable woman on earth, he moved with her to Vancouver where they began their Happily-Ever-After years, and live to this day with their three daughters.
