I was raised on a small farm near Newberg.  I attended Newberg High School and Oregon State University. I worked for First Federal Savings in McMinnville for 40 years, retiring in 2015.

I volunteer at Y.C.H.S. on Wednesday’s where I enjoy working with the saw mill and the farm equipment.

I enjoy playing Pickle-ball and also volunteer at Noble Cemetery.

I live near McMinnville with my wife, Jan and dog, Gracie.
