Originally from Florida. Hired on with IBM in 1968 and moved to SE Minnesota in 1972 where I completed 33½ years with the company before retiring. I was a charter member of the Coulee Region Woodturners in LaCrosse, Wisconsin. I moved to New Richmond, Wisconsin in 2004. I belong to the local Kiwanis Club, enjoy my woodworking and doing things with my family and grandchildren.
