Dad grew up on a farm with his six siblings. He was drafted to the Korean War and honorably served our country as a heavy equipment operator and an MP. Dad and Mom married on July 28, 1961 in New Martinsville, WV. That same year relocating to Toledo, Ohio. Dad was a truck driver for Nazar Rubber Co. (Toledo) from 1972-2001. He did not retire until the age of 70. He instilled a strong work ethic in his children. Mom and Dad relocated to Fort Wayne, IN in 2014.
