I would like to take the opportunity to thank my parents for giving me life, values, wisdom, and respect for others. I thank my school teachers, Sunday school teachers, Boy Scout leaders, little league coaches, and employers over the years, for teaching me, educating me, molding me, and shaping me to face the world. I thank my former stakeholders in my extensive business endeavors for giving me the opportunity to use my talents to further the success of our business and thus be of service to our community and provide jobs and security for so many people.
Most of all I would like to thank my wife Karen, who for over 40 years, has believed in me, and supported me, every step of the way! Also, a special thanks to our son Sean, who has blessed us with four wonderful grandkids.
I believe in my God, Family, Community, and Business. Hopefully, when I take time to look back on my life, I can say, "I was able to work, have fun, and live a safe and healthy life."
