Get to Know Me
I am married with three married children and six grandchildren (and two grandpups). Born and raised in the Chicagoland area, I now reside in the Tampa, Florida region but still hold my sports allegiances to the Chicago teams (Blackhawks, Bears, White Sox).
I was ordained a Catholic Deacon for the Diocese of Joliet, IL in 2016 and now am part of the Diocese of St. Petersburg, assigned to St. Stephen Catholic Church in Riverview, FL.
When I am not doing ministry work for the church, I love to golf, read, take walks with my wife, and spend time at Disney World (on our own and with our kids and grand kids).
What’s the best trip you’ve taken and why?
My favorite trip has been a Disney Alaskan Cruise, not only for being able to see the beauty of Alaska but because we were able to experience it with all of our children and grandchildren.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?
“Choose your battles wisely.” This was especially poignant as we raised our children.
What is your dream job?
If I cannot play for an NHL team, then I would like to be a Zamboni driver.
What do most people not know about me?
I am a member of the Hole-In-One club. I was 11 years old and scored the achievement on a Par 3, 145-yard hole.
