Joan and I have been married for 52 years. We have two sons, Duane and Kevin, who have blessed us with 6 grandchildren. I retired from General Electric (where I worked for 33 years in Marketing and Sales) and the former IPFW (where I worked for 10 years as a professor of Marketing and Director of the MBA programs at the Doermer School of Business).

We have been members of Blackhawk for 5 years. We are first service greeters and belong to the Double Exposure Life group. Joan volunteers in the ESL and quilters programs. We are leaders in the Monday evening BSF program that meets at Blackhawk (Joan with women’s program and me with men’s program).

I am thankful for the opportunity to serve as a deacon at Blackhawk.
