Originally from Minnesota, Michigan has been home for about 37 of the last 50 years. Over this period but at different times, I resided in several locations including Sault Ste Marie, Oscoda/Tawas, Grand Rapids, and have now been in Holland since 1994. My working careers were highlighted by serving for 21 years in the US Air Force and 23 years with the Holland Board of Public Works when I retired in 2017. Facilities support has been the common thread throughout my working life. It has been an honor to work with the wonderful staff and parishioners of Grace Episcopal Church.
