I'm married to a wonderful wife and we have four lovely kids.

The Silvernail children have had a remarkable 2020 so far!! Our daughter, Jade, graduated college summa cum laude outdoing her brother, Connor, who graduated last year magna cum laude. 13 year old Peter is now 6' 1", 200 pounds and weightlifting every day. Our 10 year old, James, fully recovered from his broken spine and is also weightlifting each day.

Once a year we go tuna and striper fishing at the Cape.

Our family enjoys target shooting with MP15 rifles and a variety of hand guns.

In our spare time, we raise cattle, hogs, sheep, chickens and turkeys.
