I married Cinda in 1982. We have one son, Taylor, born in 1989. In addition our family consists of a beagle, Cleveland and two cats; Toro and Tigre. We've lived in the Hermiston area since 1982. Enjoy time with family; biking, golfing, hiking working outdoors and travel. Seems I never have the time to read everything I'd like.
