"My Father was an inspiration to me. He taught me the value of hard work and always finding joy in whatever you worked at. He worked as an ironworker (building/working on hydroelectric dams throughout the western US), moving houses in the Detroit area, timber logging in northwestern Montana. He died an untimely death in a logging accident in 1982. It is unfortunate that he never had the opportunity to meet his great grandson, who my wife and I are raising. I've strived to pass on to my grandson these work ethics that my father gave to me which hopefully will be passed on to future generations."
