When at CCHS I had very questionable goals. My goal academically was not to get a grade lower then a C. However, at the same time I didn't get many grades above a C. In addition, I just wanted to goof-around and party.Then came graduation and I was clueless as to what I was going to do with my life. Thank God for a recruiter from International Business College, who encouraged me to enroll there. In 1962 I graduated with an associate BS degree in accounting.
In 1964 I met my wife of 45 years (Kathy). We got married in 1965 and are blessed with a beautiful family of 3 daughters and 7 grandchildren. Kathy encouraged me to further my education at IU. I graduated in 1968 with a BS degree in business. We moved to Sidney, Ohio in 1970 and there enjoy life together. Professionally, I was an accountant for 6 years until I discovered I was more a people person then a thing person. Consequently, I changed my profession to financial marketing and set up my own company called Pioneer Capital.
Then the greatest thing that possibly could happen to any person happened to me. In July 1976, I came into a personal, intimate, loving abiding relationship with Jesus Christ.It changed my life in a magnificent way forever.I have since then traveled throughout the USA and into foreign countries sharing the love gospel of Jesus. It is awesome what God has done for me. He took me from humble beginnings to where He has brought me. I'am truly a blessed man.
