I was born in Cleveland, Ohio and have spent most of my life here.  I graduated from St. Edward High School in Lakewood, Ohio.  Following that I received an Associate Degree in Data Processing from Cuyahoga Community College and and undergraduate Degree in Business Administration from Baldwin Wallace.  Margee and I married December 30, 1971.  We have three children: Tara, Justin and Emily.  Together they have made us proud grandparents of eight children.

I  retired after thirty years in the telecommunications industry working for Ohio Bell, Ameritech, SBC and AT&T.

I have been working for the Cleveland Diocese TRIBUNAL since September, 2001.  There I work four days a week as the Business Manager and Canonical Auditor.  

I was raised Catholic and have always had a special affection for the Catholic faith and its religious practices.  I was ordained a Deacon May 13, 2000 after four years of study at St. Mary's Seminary.  I spent my first ten and a half years of diaconate at St. Mary of the Falls.

I have been assigned at Sacred Parish since  December 1, 2010.
