I was born…

Fullerton, Southern California

My favorite thing about Arizona…

The beautiful sunsets & high country pines

I’m listening to…

motivational talks and Eagles music.

My family…

Love is a powerful word coming from a father, it goes a long way in the healing process. I had a strong but loving father who taught me this wonderful principal. I try to show all my family I love them and care
for what they are doing. I have known tragedy through losing a wife to cancer and the trail of blending families. Grandchildren just want love, love & more love from grandpa and that is my great reward!

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

Currently; Charles Barkley- I bet he has some great stories… Past-Jesus, he’d be a great guest
and I have many questions, maybe he’d bring the fish and bread.

One thing I cannot live without…

Chocolate. Everything is better with chocolate!

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

A professional baseball player for the Dodgers or Giants…. Didn’t every kid?

I’m inspired by…

true stories of ordinary people doing good and great things with their lives. I always feel like I could be doing more.

The one person who motivates me is…

My wife. She is better than I am in so many ways. I am running to keep up…

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

Move back to the basic’s. I think we may have gone too far in trying to take care of all people and lost our sense of moral right. We have bent to everyone’s right’s so now the middle majority have lost and become the minority.

The perfect day would be…

a great breakfast (I am a breakfast person)cool morning walk with my wife in the high country pines, followed by an afternoon of relaxing fishing in a well stocked lake with my sons laughing and telling stories but mainly just me watching them, returning home to a good dinner by a fire with my wife.

My first job was…

a dishwasher in a bowling alley when I was 15. I practically grew up there & was a really good bowler (+200 avg) but now haven’t picked up a bowling ball in over 20years. Funny how things turn out.

My favorite escape…

walk in the pines in the high country, just let go and enjoy the quiet beauty of nature.

My life…

Thought I had it figured out at 20, then 30. Now its past 50 and I am still wondering “whats next”! I take it as it comes and try to make the best and do my best in all circumstances and times. I believe the best about others until they give me a reason not to, hope for the best for all(even my enemies as I am not perfect)and try to get the most out of life.

I’m currently working on…

Giving more service. Doing something for someone who can’t is very powerful and rewarding.

Always…

Be grateful. There are alot of people worse off and in worse shape than you. Everyone deserves a ‘thank you’ or ‘pat on the back’ to help brighten their day.

Never…

Hold a grudge too long. It uglies you and gives power to someone else.

Favorite Quote…

1)”you can’t live a perfect day until you do something for someone who will never be able to repay you”- John Wooden. – he has alot of great quotes.

2)”Don’t argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to
his level and beat you with experience.”

Biggest Dream…

Still working on it…. Going back to England- I lived there for 2 yrs and loved it. Learning to play the guitar-rock on!,space flight and having all my kids close by so I can watch my grand children grow.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

people who are late-its all about them and feeling like I am being taken advantage of.
