I was born and spent my young years on a large farm in Northeastern Iowa. My family moved to Alaska in 1972 and Palmer and St. Michael's Parish have been my home since age 11. My father was a pilot so we spent much time flying across Alaska, hunting fishing and just enjoying the outdoors. Hunting and spending time in the wilderness enjoying various activities have occupied much of my time ever since. I am a self-employed electronics technician, owning and operating a small business since 1982 servicing equipment mostly for the banking industry in Alaska. I met Annie in 1984 and she became my better half in 1987. We have 4 children and 11 grandchildren. Being ordained a deacon in May of 2009. I currently function in the prison ministry as well as serving at St. Michael's Parish and Holy Family Parish in Glennallen. I thoroughly enjoy serving these two parishes as the parishioners truly radiate the spirit and the body of Christ.
