I accepted Jesus as my Lord & Savior in my mid-twenties after a series of personal crisis, which included the untimely deaths of my sister and mother 9 months apart. Then shortly after that I met my wife Rita (FCA first grade teacher) who was raised in the church, and I have been growing in the Lord since then, sometimes too slowly. I consider Rita, who is my opposite, to be God’s greatest gift to me in many ways. I retired from a 38-year Engineering career in 2019 to become a caseworker for a faith-based social service agency until 2021, when I came to FCA. I was an Engineering Manager for 20 of those years, mentoring new engineers along the way. It’s humbling to be starting over again, but I like to learn and encourage others to join me on the journey.
