I worked at BASF in research, for Potters Lawn Maintenance, and at Hollandia Gardens. I did landscape installation, lawn maintenance, retail sales, and quality control. I was also safety director for many years. I am a Master Gardener and a Michigan Certified Nurseryman and have a current pesticide and commercial drivers license.
My wife, Tina’ 75, and I attended Central Ave. CRC for 20 years. We met there, were married there, made profession of faith there, and all our children were baptized there. We have four children, twelve grandchildren, one cat, one Friesian mare, and a two-year-old gelding named Arie. Children are Jonathon, Elizabeth, Mary, and David. We are currently members of Victory Point Ministries (part of the CRC.) We are active in various aspects of this ministry.
