I retired March 20, 2018 after 38 years of service for the State of Minnesota, 22 years at Minnesota Security Hospital (St. Peter Regional Treatment Center), working with mentally ill & dangerous residents; seven years at Faribault Regional Treatment Center, working with developmentally disabled residents, and finally, almost 10 years at the Minnesota Dept. of Natural Resources in Mankato. In the early 80s, I also worked part-time in insurance and investments. All this after graduating with a BS Teaching and Coaching degree. But, it has been a rewarding and challenging career. I continue to live in St. Peter with wife Diane, where I’ve been active in three church choirs, served on Church Council and was Committee Chairman of a Fellowship Hall/Office complex addition in 1994. Enjoying time with family, golf, bowling, fishing, and traveling will continue to be my main pursuits.
