Today's Featured Biography

 

Robert Rodak

Life
Where to start? I guess I finally grew up. I'll stick to my personal life and note my career under the "work" section on this site. I'm happily married to a beautiful woman named Debbi. She is my soulmate and fits me to a T. We have three wonderful kids, Philip, Ashley and Sarah. I started late in life with the kids and I'm very happy I did. I've gotten the wild life out of my system and am now concentrating on the important things. My children are my life and my reason for doing everything that I do.

I have hobbies but my passion and is the restoration and research of the 1894 Queen Anne Victorian Mansion that we bought in 1999. The house is undoubtedly the grandest home in Emporia, KS. It has stained glass windows in every room (except the servants areas), 8 carved fireplaces and a beautiful grand staircase. (When we bought it, it had 16 full baths. We've since removed about 8) Unfortunately, the house was boarded up for six years before we bought it and was in really bad shape. We've made a lot of progress but still have a long way to go. My dream is to take 21st century technology and hide it into a 19th century house. We have computer controlled lighting and outlets. We plan on having drapes that open and close automatically, whole house audio, zoned heating and air conditioning etc. My example scenario is that you turn on the TV, a hidden screen rolls down from the ceiling, the curtains automatically close and the lights dim. When the doorbell rings, the TV pauses, the closed circuit camera shows the person at the door on the TV screen, and you pick up the phone and talk to them. You push a couple more buttons on the phone, the front door unlocks and you tell them to come up to the family room. We are a long way from this point but have made good progress and will get there. We have built a website showing the history of the house and the restoration progress. If you're interested, you can see it at thecrosshouse.org. If you're driving down I-35, get off on the 50 Hwy exit and head West. Drop in. We'd love to show the house to you and see you again.

One last thing we do. Since I proposed to Debbi in a haunted house, dressed in full Dracula costume, at the stroke of Midnight on Halloween, it is only natural that we go overboard on decorating our "haunted house" every Halloween. We regularly have 300-400 trick-or-treaters each year. We do animaltronics and go for Hollywood quality props. We do a lot for Christmas too. Old fashioned Victorian decorations. We have been on the Historical Society's Holiday Homes Tour for the last two years. I have plenty of lights that I have not put up until the the outside is finished being painted. The house will resemble the Plaza at Christmas with all it's curves, angles and dormers.

Before I run out of space, professionally, I am President of a company, that I own, called Biomed Plus Inc. We do all the maintenance on the medical at the two local hospitals, a couple of surgery centers, doctor's offices and for the Emporia State University Athletics dept. I would like to pursuade the Chiefs to let us do their equipment just so I can say that we do it. Biomed Plus employs 3 full-time and one part-time employee.

I am Managing Member, and owner, of Whispering Oaks Apartments LLC. We own about a dozen apartment buildings here in Emporia. We basically buy run down apartments and gut them for a total restoration. We have 4 full-time employees and random other part-time employees.

I am starting a new business called Midwest Foam & Coatings LLC. We spray polyurethane foam insulation. If you're concerned about your high utility bills, you would do well to look into it. It is almost a miracle compared to fiberglass insulation. It is expensive but well worth it.
I am a member of the Chamber of Commerce, a board member of the Lyon County Historical Society, a graduate of Leadership Emporia and probably some other stuff that I forgot.

All in all, most of this stuff feels unimportant to me but is what I feel that I am supposed to write about. My family is what I am really all about.

I guess that is all until I come up with more lies to tell! (smile)

College
I have an Associates of Science in Biomedical Engineering from Johnson County Community College and a Bachlors in Business Administration from Baker University. School has taken me so far and perseverance has taken me the rest of the way.

Workplace
I am President of my own my own medical electronics repair corporation called Biomed Plus, Inc. I have four employees, including myself. I also have an LLC for my rental properties called Whispering Oaks Apartments, LLC. We have 3 apartment buildings and 4 houses, plus the "big house" talked about in the "life" section of this website. Between Biomed Plus, Whispering Oaks, restoring The Cross House, running a website and taking time out for my family, I keep VERY busy!
(2008) As if I wasn't busy enough, I am now starting another business called Midwest Foam and Coatings LLC.

Military
I have never served in the military. I tried to enter the Air Force before college but when I was asked if I had ever smoked pot, I said yes. They told me goodbye. I'm SO GLAD that I answered truthfully. The road I was sent down was MUCH BETTER! Also, I don't smoke dope anymore.
