Recent Activity -
I enlisted in the army in Feb. 1966 after a dismal first year of college. That was the best move of my life. I owe the army for helping me grow up and taking command of my life. After my three years of service I was able to return to college and get the degree that I never thought was possible. I am now retired after 41 years in the Foundry/Automotive Industry and loving every min. of retirement. Head Wrestling Coach for Lake Michigan Catholic HS (2 years). Head Wrestling Coach for Hartland Wrestling Club (5 years). Worked closely with BSA (I have 3 boys and all earned the Eagle Scout Award). Board Member, Bullard Lake Woods Homeowners Association.
