His favorite quote is: When you die you're meant to leave this earth not on a pension but on a purpose.
He has continued to mentor while encouraging youth and teenagers to operate in their gift. He promotes the concept that every person has a purpose and every person is gifted with a gift to help them win in life.  Currently as Director of PYA (Partnering for Youth Achievement) he is leading the church ministries in  working with our local Boys and Girls Club, Bremerton High School, Bremerton Housing Authority, PSNS/IMF, and local churches in order to help our youth become independent, responsible adults.  
He has been happily married for over 30 years and could not have been as effective in life without his loving wife Arneter. They have 3 adult children, and one granddaughter. He continues to believe that with God the impossible can be made possible. When you are down to nothing God is up to something, and the best is yet to come.
