Introduction I was born in upstate New York, attending secondary school school in Chappaqua, NY. I've lived in Ohio, Florida and Arizona. Majored in Biology at Denison University, Granville, Ohio. My daughter graduated from Gonzaga with honors on a merit scholarship. I moved to Redmond from Denver in 1978. My first real home, of six years, was on Lake Sammamish at Lakewood Shores condos. Loved the water-skiing and crewing. Never caught a bass. These were my single days when I played lacrosse, climbed Rainier, Baker, Grand Teton and backpacked with college friends. I married Pam in 1986 and we moved to a small tri-level on Ed. Hill in walking distance to MANN, RJH, RHS, 7 churches, Redmond Bike Park, Hartman Park, Hartman trails and wetlands. Most of my work life was corporate medical sales. I've discovered a work of passion and community service running the Redmond Blog. It's my hobby. Grandfather Yoder instilled values and importance of community service. He was a son of maternal/paternal Amish-Mennonite bishops and horticultural entrepreneur and businessman. [
