I am married to Peggy. We have 4 grown children and 3 grandchildren.

I was born in Colorado and my family moved around in Colorado,
Kansas and Nebraska before settling in Salt Lake City, Utah where
I went to High School and College.

I joined the Air Force after college, was married to Peggy in December 1963,
and we spent four years in California.

I left the Air Force after 4 years and we moved to Rochester in January, 1968
where I took a job at Kodak. We have been parishioners at Sacred Heart
since we moved to Rochester. We have been active in the parish,
primarily in the area of Marriage Preparation.

In the Fall of 1998, I was accepted into a 4 year preparation program to become
a Permanent Deacon, and was ordained in June, 2002.

In 1999, Peggy and I became involved in Prison Ministry, conducting monthly
meetings and participating in annual retreats at Groveland and Attica
Correctional Facilities.

In the Fall of 2015, I retired from the Deaconate as required at age 75, but
Peggy and I remain active in the parish and in prison ministry.
