Where has the time gone? Time seems to fly when you are having fun.
I went into the Navy after graduation and traveled to Spain and Scotland. Met my first wife while in
Scotland. We were married 30 years and had one son Martin.
In 1996, I was to attend the World Championships for Scale Models in France. I asked Gail to marry me
and spend our honeymoon in France and have been happily married since. Together we have four sons, Martin, Eric, Scott, and Jeremiah. Our grandchildren are Mitchell, Candara, Tina, Brooke and Alex. We have one great grandson Ryder.
I worked 45 years in the appraisal industry with extensive experience in various county revaluations.
