I was born and bred in St. Paul, the oldest of seven kids. At age 7, my folks informed me I was joining the Holy Spirit Boys Choir. I came to love singing! The meaning of my life is my bride, Sue, for over 47 years! I was refined and polished by our 4 daughters and loved by our granddaughter and grandson! I spent my career in Catholic education, during which I heard every excuse and flat out lie ever imagined by teenagers across the land, but I loved every minute of it. I taught, coached, and was an administrator for 45 years. Last year, I went to this A&K concert, and the rest is history. A&K is awesome, and the people are even better! My folks would be proud!
