I was born and raised on our family farm located in the nearby community of Wixom, Michigan. Being raised on a farm taught me respect, dedication, patience, responsibility and sacrifice. I also learned the importance of organization, planning, budgeting and team work.
During my 25 years of Fire Service I had the opportunity to utilize and improve these qualities. l retired from the Walled Lake Fire Department in 2000.
Rita and I were married in 1983. We moved to Genoa Township in 1993 after selling the farm in Wixom. Together we have 5 children, 10 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren, most of who live in Livingston County.
