I am married to my lovely wife Robbin, for 39 years. We have 2 married daughters and 5 grandchildren. I have played, coached and refereed soccer for 30+ years, and now I enjoy sitting as a grandparent spectator watching my grandchildren play the sport. My other activities I enjoy, are landscaping/building projects around the house, this is great stress relief. For relaxation fishing on a lake in my 14’ boat and just watching nature is great peace and solitude regardless of catching any fish, which seldom occurs.
