Family: Married to Cheryl since July 1982 (we’ve known each other since the 6th grade). She is absolutely my best friend! We are blessed to have two grown sons, Casey & Chase, and two wonderful daughters-in-law; Courtney, who married Casey in 2008, and Jenny, who married Chase in 2012. (Not to be forgotten, the prince of the house, Manchester our Yorkshire Terrier)
