I was born on Kauai Hawaii and moved to Longview Washington in 1964. I attended R.A.Long High School in Longview then attended and graduated from Washington State University many years ago.
I married my love Melba Fujiura in 1978, we have one son Pearce who is a Veterinarian working in Beaverton Oregon. He is 35 years old.
Over the years, I've been a longshoreman, a landscape designer, manager of a retail farm store and a dairy farmer. I am currently a regional operations manager for an agricultural crop protection and nutrition provider.
Melba and I enjoy cooking and we are both Master Judges with the Pacific Northwest BBQ Association.
