I was born and raised in Chicago, IL, graduated from Carl Schurz High School and went to Wright Jr. College for two years. After that time, I took Horace Greeley’s advice to “Go west young man, go west!” I came to visit my brother Paul who was working at the time for Alsip Funeral Chapel and John Alsip.
After serving for two years in the Army in France and Germany, I returned to Nampa and then to Bend, Oregon to start in the newspaper advertising business. After thirty-three years working in California, Oregon, and finishing 13 years as the Advertising Director here in Nampa for the Idaho Press Tribune, I retired.
My wife DyAnn and I have raised six children and now have 18 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. I’ve been a life long Cubs fan and my claim to fame is my nephew, John Garland, who currently pitches for the L.A. Angels after eight years and a World Series win with the Chicago White Sox.
I love to play golf and am a member of the Purple Sage Golf Course in Caldwell.
I’ve been a staff member here at Alsip’s since 1999.
