He has retired from a 30 year career as a high school shop teacher and served many years as a Scout Leader in his local church. In his spare time, he loves to carve loons. His encounter with the Living God at a men’s retreat in 1977 changed his long-distance relationship with God to a close personal walk with Jesus.
