I have 2 sons who currently reside in Minnesota along with their wives and families. I have 3 grandchildren that I visit as often as possible. I love horses. I owned a quarter-horse farm in Texas for a brief time after I sold my 8 clinic PT practice in Minnesota. I’m now a full-time resident of Central and have grown to love this "up and coming" community I call home. I enjoy spending time at home working around the house. I have season tickets to LSU Football and Basketball games.
