2. What I’ve enjoyed the most about your job? The people I work with as well as the residents I’ve had the pleasure to serve.
3. What’s the best ice cream store in Perrysburg? My favorite ice cream store is a tough question because there are some great ice cream stores in Perrysburg. But I would probably say Mister Freeze is my favorite since it is within walking distance from our house. My family and I enjoy really enjoy walking the dog and stopping for ice cream at Mister Freeze.
4. What are your summer plans? My summer plans include a vacation with the family to Lake Hope, an Ohio State Park near Athens, Ohio. The park has lots of activities to participate in like swimming, hiking, horseback riding and canoeing. But my favorite activity is relaxing by the camp fire during the evening.
5. What do you think about LeBron James winning an NBA championship? I’m pretty indifferent about LeBron James winning a championship ring since I really don’t watch or follow the NBA.
6. What are your hidden talents? I can’t say I have any hidden talents, but I do enjoy singing with the choir at Saint Rose Catholic Church. Not that I really have any singing talent, but it’s one of those little known facts that most people don’t know about me.
7. Who is in your family? My wife Michele and I will be celebrating our 18th wedding anniversary this fall. We have two daughters -- Lindsey, who is 14 years old, and Madison, who is 12 years old.
8. How long have you lived in Perrysburg? Since 1995.
9. What do you like best about Perrysburg? My favorite thing about Perrysburg is its small-town atmosphere and the ability to ride your bicycle anywhere in town.
10. If you could start your career over again, what would you chose? If I could start my career all over again, I would learn how to play a musical instrument and get involved in music. I’ve always loved listening to music and would certainly enjoy playing music if I only knew how to play an instrument. That’s one of my regrets in life -- not learning how to play a musical instrument. Maybe once I retire, my hobby will be learning how to play an instrument.Click here for more Town Talk stories
