Life Story

My wife, Amanda, and I married in 1980. Our daughter Sarah was born in USA in 2000 our son, David, was born in Fort Worth in 2005; and our daughter Lynda was born in Grapevine in 2006.

What do you like to do in your free time?
In my free time, I plan what I’m going to do the next time I have free time. Actually, I realize I’ll never get these days back with my kids, so my free time is mostly with Lynda and them. I enjoy running, cycling, watching movies and sports, cleaning my garage, and doing nothing.
