Max is the best part about Golden
I’m from Moline, Illinois. I lived there my whole life — I’m currently 62 — except, I’ve lived here since September 2012.

I was an IT manager for John Deere for 38 years. It was the plan to come out here when I retired. My son, daughter-in-law and grandchild live here.
I enjoy Colorado. Of course, the best part about Golden is our grandson, Max. Max will be 4 on May 1. He likes to ride his bike — he just graduated to his “big boy bike.” It’s a two-wheel, pedal bike.
My three hobbies
I’ve always loved photography. I like taking pictures of wildlife and sports. Wildlife, you don’t pose them. Same thing with sports — you’re capturing a moment. I really enjoy that.
Sometimes, I’ll also do some photography for nonprofits.
I also like to golf and fly fish. Those are my three hobbies.
A two-way street to the Christian Action Guild
My wife Vicki has been volunteering with the Christian Action Guild for a couple of years. She started with them as a volunteer, and they were looking for board members so she submitted my name. I have experience from sitting on other boards. I was asked to join their board of directors, and I’ve been on the board for just over a year. I’m chair of the strategic planning committee.
I like their concept. People donate to the thrift shop, then the proceeds from the sales at the thrift shop are used to buy food for the food bank, which helps underprivileged people in our community. I’ve been very blessed my whole life and I appreciate being able to give back to worthwhile causes.
The CAG is almost exclusively run by volunteers. And a lot of them work a lot of hours for no pay. It speaks very highly of the people in the Golden area.
It’s a great organization. I love the fact they’ve been around for 50 years. The Golden community supports it, and it supports the community. It’s a two-way street.
