I was born in Ashland, Kentucky in 1932.  I graduated from the University of Kentucky in Industrial Management.  My first job was with General Telephone Company of  Kentucky in Lexington, entucky.  My next job was with Humana Health Care System in Louisville, Kentucky.  I came to Birmingham in 1978 as Director of Management Engineering for the Baptist Health Care System and years later held the same position with Eastern Health Care System.  When I retired, I began driving a school bus for the Mountain Brook School System and later became their Director of Transportation.  My current work status involves a vast array of “honey-do” projects.   My faith in God and all that surrounds it is a large part of my life.  My wife and I are active members of  The Church at Brook Hills.  We have 2 sons, 1 daughter and 1 grandchild and celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary this past June.   Fishing has been a hobby of mine since I was 13 years old and I continue to do that.   My other favorite hobby was motorcycle riding which I had to give up when I was 72 years old due to losing my balancing ability.
