I was born the youngest child of 13. I was born and raised in Missouri. My family was poor as most post-World War II families were. The United States was still feeling the effects of the great depression. Each member the family shared common values. They were, work hard, and be honest. Those same values are true and my family today. My early ancestors came from European stock, mainly from Germany, Britain, and Wales. A goodly amount of them earned their passage to America by working as ships carpenters. After serving out their bondage they became Master carpenters.

My entire family worked hard as long as I can remember. My youngest sister and I were the only two that was 14 enough to receive a high school education. Yet every one of my brothers became professional craftsmen. One a carpenter and plumber, another was a hydraulic and electrical engineer, one was a draftsman and a jet engine mechanic, and the other was an airplane mechanic master welder. Although my sisters worked in the public our owned their own businesses. Although I initially perform various fl avors I spent the majority of my adult life serving and security and law enforcement. In this capacity I served in the city, state, and the federal government’s. I highest office being the chief of police in a small rural town. I’m married and had three children after leaving the military.
