After four years of serving my country as an Infantryman entering
Europe on D-Day at Utah Beach, I spent several years working for
the Rural Electrification Association (REA) wiring rural country
homes. Coming to Washington in 1951, I worked for Boeing for 37.6
years, first in production, then in engineering doing contract
estimating and negotiations at numerous Air Force bases. In 1997 I
was appointed Commission for the water district and have been there
ever since. My wife and I have been married since 1963 with five
living children and one deceased. We both attend most all City of
SeaTac council meetings and I also attend all Valley View Sewer
District meetings. I am a certified WASWD Platinum Level
Commissioner and it is an honor and privilege to serve our Water
District constituents.
