I grew up in a military family (Air Force) and upon leaving home I went into the navy, Now I work in aerospace and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I work in the aerospace industry and I love playing golf and visiting the tennessee mountains at least twice a year. I love seeing the mountains, its like home to me. Gets me in touch with my roots. Love the southern hospitality and the down home goodness of everyone. What can I say, the music is great. My other big interest is Alabama football (sorry BYU and Auburn). As you can tell I love southern people and their way of life, so friendly. I have lived all over this great nation of ours and I really love this country. I lived in Washington D.C., New Mexico, California, Nevada, Colorado, Nebraska, Alabama. Mississippi, Wisconsin and Florida and have really loved each place. Oh yes I was born in Virginia. I hope someday to take my wife of 32 years out west. We have lived in Florida our whole married life. She is from West Virginia and has never been out west. This is a must.

Why I am a Mormon

I converted to the mormon church in 1974. Went to a bake sale at the cocoa ward and became very interested in the church just by walking around in the church in cocoa and had the feeling of something very special. I ask the missionaries that where their about their church and requested that they teach me about their faith, of course that was right up their alley. I took the lessons and became very excited about what they said. I was an easy convert for them but I am still learning so much. I quess you never stop learning. I love this church and all it stands for. I just feel at home in this church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing my callings to the best of my ability and home teach both active and inactive members of our ward. I teach both old and young members in my ward and find that experience very rewarding and educational. My wife is Relief Society President and I support her with her calling with all my effort I can muster. Her work in the Relief Society is very rewarding to the both of us. Our callings are very good for the both of us, it helps us grow in ways that make us grow closer to our heavenly farther. We do our temple work for ourselves and our deceased loved ones who did not have the opportunity to do for themselves. I love this church with all my being.
