Facilities Manager & Board of Trustee Member
Pictured with wife, Susan (right), and Tate (Joepaaa's son).
I was born and raised in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. After high school, I went to Iowa State University where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Forestry with a minor in wood products. During my college days, I did a work-study program in Finland for six months.
Since my graduation, I have worked in the building industry either selling building materials or working in construction. In the last few years prior to my retirement in 2016, I sold energy-efficient heating, air conditioning, and ventilation equipment.
My wife Susan and I have been married since 1976. We joined the Crossroads Community Church in January of 2014. I also gave my life to Christ that same month through baptism. I am currently a member of the Board of Trustees and the facilities manager. Susan and I also host a weekly Life Group at our home in Waterloo. I love our church family and enjoy the “little ones” in the daycare when I come to our building during the week to work.
