Location Rio Grande, Southeastern Ohio, United States
Introduction        My roots are the Catholic Church & Duquesne, PA, thus a fan of Pittsburgh area sports & Notre Dame football.         Cradle Catholic; Holy Trinity School alumnus.  Also have a Byzantine Catholic heritage since my grandfather on my mother's side was a priest (Rome allows marriage before ordination).      My family is very active in St. Louis Church of Gallipolis, OH, where am a Eucharistic Minister to the sick; lector; 4th Degree Knights of Columbus; Captain of Annual Public Square Rosary Rally; help with Confirmation classes; member of the Steering Committee for the annual Diocesan Men's Day of Renewal.  Having been a lay missionary in Arequipa-Peru for 14 years, still have a missionary spirit.  Thus very much involved in church and community volunteer work, as Free Clinic. At the same time, I try to be a good husband & father and raise my four kids as strong Catholics.       Love teaching & have spent most of my career as a college professor.  Today am a member of the Campus Ministry Board & adviser to the Catholic Newman Club at the University of Rio Grande. Contact for questions, etc.
Interests My Catholic Faith, my family, sports fan, swimming, higher education, Catholic Newman Club, business social responsibility, serving my church and community.
Favorite Movies Religious, sports, thought provoking movies that refresh rather than shock, musicals, biographical, etc. I love "Lillies of the Field" with Sidney Portier and "Sound of Music".
