What is your favorite quote and why? Whenever anyone would ask him how he was doing, my good buddy Barry used to say – “I’m great, fantastic, and far out, it doesn’t get any better than this! Every walk is a parade, every meal is a feast, and just for you there is a sale at the mall today!” No matter what he was dealing with it would instantly lift his spirits, put a smile on the other person’s face with a little chuckle, and start off the conversation on a pleasant note. I’ll always remember him for wanting to wake up each morning with the goal to make it a better day for someone else.
If you could spend the day with anyone, who would it be? My wife, boys, and parents for a round of golf at Augusta National. To be reminded of what’s important in life.
What is the best advice you have ever received? “I shoot better without the laser…” – My Lovely Wife
When you are not at the office, you can often be found doing what? Cutting grass on my big Kubota tractor, or rebounding basketballs for my twin boys.
What is your favorite place in the world and why? Horseshoe Bay, Bermuda. Pink sand!
What is something others may be surprised to learn about you? I collect famous historical autographs, and brew my own beer. I’ve always wanted to learn to surf, and play guitar; just not at the same time.
One day, I would really like to: hop in a time machine and go back to Philadelphia, 1776, to share some pints with Adams, Jefferson, and Franklin while they wrote the Declaration.
