NEVER HAD A BAD DAY IN MY LIFE, SOME JUST TURN OUT BETTER THAN OTHERS.


Background Information

I live with my wife of forty-five years.

I was born in a small farm town in Nebraska.  Shortly after my birth, my Dad sold the family farm and moved us in near Chicago so I could go to Shriner’s Crippled Children’s Hospital and have my club feet corrected.  I spent nine months a year for the first five years of my life in the hospital undergoing surgeries.

My first two years in high school were in the seminary, until I decided I wasn’t cut out for the priesthood.

I joined the Army right out of high school and spent nearly ten years in the Service.  While on active duty in the Army, I competed nationally for a 2nd Army Division Rifle Team and was also a member of a Post Skydiving Team.  I've made 1,400 Parachute jumps; over 1,100 of those jumps were free-falls from over 12,000 feet and 21 of the jumps were HALO jumps (HALO is a military acronym for High Altitude, Low Opening) meaning the jumper exits the aircraft from over 20,000 feet and is under 1,000 feet when the chute is deployed.

Since leaving the service I was involved in the computer industry for nearly forty years doing everything from computer programming to Company President.

I have always been an avid hunter and enjoy the outdoors, especially when I'm in the woods or mountains.  The idea for Bearkiller came to me while in the Wasatch Mountains.

Now that I'm retired, I write as a hobby and to relax.
