He was born Sept. 25, 1951, in West Allis, where he attended school in the West Allis and New Berlin areas until his family moved to Rhinelander. He attended his senior year and graduated with the class of 1969. He married Joyce in 1973 and they were blessed with two wonderful children and five grandchildren.
