Proudest Moment

“Birth of my two kids who in turn have produced terrific grandchildren.”

Favorite Vacation

“Two stand out. First, going white water rafting down the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon. I have done it twice and it is exhilarating and spectacular. Secondly, a safari to Africa and seeing all of nature’s animals in their natural habitat.”
