Just who am I?
My wife Nancy and I have a son and daughter,
Steve and Kathleen and 6 grandkids. 4 of the grandkids are Steve's (3 girls & 1 boy) and
the newest grandson is Kathleen's second child (1 girl & 1 boy).
Besides my family, church and singing in the Chancel Choir, playing my guitar and clarinet I enjoy canoeing the Santa Fe River in North Florida and as my daughter says, messing up the computer.
I was born in Butler, Pa. Raised in North Miami Beach, FL. Graduated from Miami Norland High School, attended Miami Dade Jr. College. Nancy and I married in 1969. I spent 2 years in the Army and was stationed in Dachau, Germany. In the mid 70's , we moved to Gainesville, FL. I beame very involved with the Boy Scouts. I was a Webelos Scout Leader for Pack 83, a member of the Alachua District Cub Scout Roundtable staff and Cub Scout Leader Training staff. Scoutmaster of Troop 202, a member of the Alachua District Boy Scout Leader Training staff (SMF), District Eagle Board, merit badge counselor and BSA Lifeguard counselor. I was a member of the OA (Order of the Arrow). A Girl Scout Co-Leader of Troop 147. This did not all happen at the same time. I started with the Cub Scouts and ended with the Girl Scouts. I was a member of the School Advisory Council at Howard Bishop Middle School and Band Boosters at Gainesville High School. I am very committed to the development and safety of children.
In August, 2000 I enrolled at Santa Fe Community College and 3 years later I graduated with Honors with an A.S. Degree in Computer Information Technology. That is when I changed my occupation from 30 + years of being an ASE certified automotive techician to an IT specialist.
