Loves kids and animals. Thrives on working in the nursery. Loses track of time. Has been known to turn on the lights of his John Deere tractor, so he can see to finish a job after dark. (Values his tractor second only unto his wife...she hopes.) Willingly jumps into any project Val thinks up for him. Sometimes gets dragged, kicking and screaming, to a theatrical production. Former high school teacher with Master's degree in education. Confirmed bachelor for 39 years before Val and her kids caught up with him. Wouldn't trade his life for anything.
