My home of origin is Brevard, North Carolina. Brevard is located at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains and Blue Ridge Mountains and Parkway. I left the beautiful hills of Carolina, in 1966 when I joined the USAF. After basic training, I arrived at Chanute Air Force Base as an active duty service member, in 1966. I was assigned to the Centralized Base Personnel Office Headquarter's Squadron.
My wife, Linda and I have three children. Our children attended Rantoul City Schools and graduated Rantoul Twp. High School.
Linda is in Private Practice as a Behavioral Mental Health Therapist.
I enjoy traveling, biking, long walks, good food and visiting with friends. One of my greatest joys comes from being involved with my grandchildren and traveling with them across the United States.
