After graduating from St. Louis Park High School in 1956, he started working at Northwestern Bell Telephone Company where he spent the next 4 decades until retirement. At 21 he married Karen, the love of his life. They settled in Eden Prairie where they raised daughter Kathi and sons Mikkal and Jason. Mikkal saw his friends, neighbors and entire community as family. He was a fixture at Schooner Days, Corn Feed and all other Lions Functions since 1969. But his civic-minded ethic didn’t stop there, he dedicated his time and insight to the Eden Prairie Foundation, City Park and Rec department and a 59 year member of the Hopkins Elks Club.
