Bio

I have been married for over 45 years now. My wife, Sally & I have 4 grown kids (1 son & 3 daughters) that are all married now. We have 9 grandkids! I worked at Draw-Tite for 22 years. I also worked for Coca-Cola for almost 18 years. First in Van Buren as a merchandiser & as a warehouse general. Then at Detroit Production as a general for several more years. I still work at Christ Our Shephard Lutheran Church in Newport, MI as their custodian. When I can find some free time, I enjoy doing yard work when it's warm, collecting & sorting baseball cards, & trying to complete all of my Topps baseball sets starting with 1973. This year will make 49 years of making Topps Baseball card sets! I collect wheat pennies & the new shield pennies too. I also like to do large jigsaw puzzles of 1,000 pieces or more. I enjoy working on family archives and adding more on our family tree on Ancestry.com. After all that I like to photograph tombstones for people who would like to see a picture of a loved ones grave stone that could not take it themselves. I really enjoy looking at old tombstones finding famous and even not so famous people. Some people think its kind of weird, but that's what I like doing! It does take a little time to walk around the cemeteries looking for the tombstones or grave markers that anyone requests, but I enjoy doing it. I'm glad that there are people out there to take some photographs for me. Thanks for looking & have a nice day!
