Darcy and I celebrated our 52 anniversary last week. We are blessed with 3 grown children, all in their 40's. Our daughter, Cheryl, is a nurse at St. Luke's Hospital and lives in Mequon. Our oldest son, Mark, has a construction company and lives in Cedarburg. Our youngest son, Scott, works at Cape Canaveral and lives in Merritt Island, Florida.

We are also blessed with 4 grandchildren. Abby, 13, and Luke, 11, live in Cedarburg. Stevie, 4, and Caroline, 1 1/2, live in Florida.

I grew up in Glendale and graduated from Nicolet High School. That is where I took my first architectural course and fell in love with architecture. I ended up working full time in the profession of architecture for over 50 years. During that time I worked as a draftsman for two different firms, as sole principal of my own firm and as a partner in two other firms. My partner and I sold our architectural firm at the end of 2016 which gave me the opportunity to finally retire.

We have lived in Mequon for 50 years and I have tried to stay active in our community during that time period. I am extremely proud to be a charter member of our great  Rotary Club. The past 30 years have gone by quickly. It is interesting to think back 30 years when a group of us got together to discuss the possibility of starting up a new Rotary Club. None of us in that room, except for one person from the noon club, knew anything about Rotary. We were on a big learning curve. And learn we did. Even though all of those other charter members are no longer with the club, they set the bar high. They were hard working professionals who quickly understood how Rotary could be so beneficial for our community and the world. Our club is as strong as it has ever been and is well respected in our community. Keep up the good work!
