Greatest Accomplishment
Susan and I have been married for 45+ years and raised two sons. They and their families have now blessed us with nine grandchildren.  Since they all live locally, then we have the opportunity to spend much time with them.  I certainly consider my family to be my greatest accomplishment.  This is also the core of my pro-life passion.

My original involvement with IRL was as a volunteer, starting in 2008. I became a Board member in 2009.  I continue today as an active volunteer and proud member of the Board.
