Born and raised in Centralia. I started work at a young age at my family’s business representing the 5TH generation of Funeral services in the greater Centralia area. I married my wife Kristi and we have twin sons. I have lived on Raccoon Lake since 1980 and still reside there today having bought the property from my father. After the birth of our children I decided to venture away from the family business and follow my passion into the food industry. In the 18 years spent there I had achieved many things, but most importantly the trust of the public that allowed me to host many events including weddings, receptions, outings, banquets, business affairs and ceremonies. Some in excess of 450 people. As well as maintaining a golf course and grounds by implementing various methods of turfgrass and aquatic pest control procedures.
Growing up, my father was an avid outdoorsman. So naturally I was the beneficiary of his pursuits. Spending countless brisk mornings in the duck blind or watching the sun rise over the lake from the back of a fishing boat with fishing pole in hand. I inevitably followed in his footsteps from the duck blind to the airboat and from the fishing boat to the Tournament trail.
I have spent many years in the service industry, where customer service is the key. Responsibility, compassion, loyalty and respect, to name a few, are at the forefront of the duties that any customer or client should demand. I hope to gain your confidence in entrusting me to go to work for you. Whether your looking for your first home, a forever home, an investment for the future, a private place to hunt or a place to start your own legacy.
