I have lived in the Silverton community for 28+ years and am completing my seventh year as a member of Silverton Senior Center, serving as President for the past five years.
I have an extensive business background as a General/Sales Manager and business owner/manager. I was also a City Councilman and Mayor of the City of Tigard.
I have been a professional musician and entertainer for many years, beginning my music career in high school playing guitar with several buddies in a band we labeled, "The Kopy Kats." Now my daughter-in-law, Marla Mickelson and I have a band named “Next of Kin.” That is what is keeping me young.
With my wife Pat of 53+ years, I have one son, one daughter-in-law, two daughters, three grandchildren, one dog, one cat, and three fish. Yep, life’s been good.
