Well I will do the short version: Grew up in the construction world of mostly houses, was drafted In 1965 but went into the Air Force where a year later received a degree in Electronic/electrical engineering. Was stationed In Nebraska, Wyoming, then Vietnam, worked in a Garage door business for 23 years and left the door business as Acting Vice President of Operations, always wanted to drive a 18 wheeler so I did then had a idea for a lighting system for the rear of semi-trailers so I patented it and now manufacture them.
Married, 2 boys, Chris, and Joe, both are engineers, I really like to camp out and cook out over a wood fire and hunt and fish, watch good movies, and socialize with friends, church. I always have something to invent or fix make better. I live in Piqua, Oh with wife Jan.
