Tell us a little about your family: I was born in Carlisle PA and grew up in Paramount in Southern California. My wife, Mary (SWA Flight attendant), and I have been married for 44 years. Our son, Will, went to Northwest Nazarene University in Idaho after attending FCS K-12. Our daughter, Crystal, also attended FCS K-12 and graduated from Point Loma Nazarene University. We are blessed that our children and their families have moved back to the area allowing us to have more time with our 6 grandchildren: Makalyn, Nolyn, Aedan, Colin, Kylie, and Zoe.
