My wife Kathy, son Jamie, father Bob, and my granddaughter Stevi

My father taught me that America was founded on freedom – the freedom to choose our own road to happiness – but that with freedom comes a responsibility to family, community, and country.


My mother taught me to reject ideology that exists for its own sake rather than to achieve some real good.  She taught me to find the good in all people and to avoid divisiveness.

My wife Kathy and I are in our 18th year in Flagstaff.  We moved here so she could work in Human Resources at W.L. Gore.  She is now retired.

Kathy sews clothes for disadvantaged children through the Back to School Clothing Drive.

I have two grown children and three grandchildren.
