Background Information

Being raised in the Red Wing area, I feel fortunate to live near the river; I try to get out and enjoy it as often as time permits. My wife Patty and I have three children and two grandchildren. We are active members of United Lutheran Church, as well as members of several volunteer organizations. My hobbies include pontoon boating, camping, sailing, hiking and spending time with my family. Except for odd jobs during high school and college, I have been self-employed all my life, which has given me an appreciation for the reward from hard work and a strong dedication to serving others.
