I am seventy three years old, have the same beautiful wife for 54 years, that now has Parkinson’s disease, I love to care for, but wish there was no need. We have two sons and two daughters, six grandchildren and three great grandchildren.
I have had a diverse career path, I have been a meat cutter for the first twelve years of my working life, I sold real estate for a couple of years, owned a continuous rain gutter installing business for thirty years, owned two small grocery stores for four years, and for the last thirty years have owned Ode Products where we manufacture and sell our own inventions related to the aluminum gutter business, to wholesale distributors throughout the United States. Many endeavors on this career path overlapped. I am now retired and working on my second book, while our youngest son runs the business.
