I was born in Wallace, ID in 1944, raised in Osburn, ID and graduated from Wallace High School. After a few years of working underground in the mines, I bought the Osburn Club from my parents and operated the club until moving out of state in early 1970.
While living in California, I met my wife, Bonnie. We married in 1990 and between the two of us we have four children and seven grandchildren. In San Diego, I owned and operated a very successful construction maintenance company. I also became an active member of the Volunteer Sheriff’s Patrol.
We began our investments in the Wallace, ID area in the late 1990’s and ultimately moved back to Wallace in 2006. We have remained active in all of our businesses which include a new event center, cocktail lounge, 12-unit condo complex, restaurant/bar and 19-unit motel/apt units. In 2012, we opened a first-class zip line company in Wallace and we are both actively involved in the business.
I am currently the past governor of District VIII. We have attended a number of conventions and have enjoyed making new friends throughout the years. I have been a Wallace Gyro member for eight years and served as President of our club for one year.
I am an active member of our City Council and enjoy participating in various community events. I enjoy traveling, investing and an occasional round of golf, snowmobiling, 4-wheeling and fishing.
