I am married, my wife Susan works on the Crockett campus. We have one adult son, Chris, who works in law enforcement. We have two dogs: Zoey the 80 pound black Lab, who thinks she’s a lap dog…. and Maggie the Pomeranian who thinks she’s as big as Zoey.
I enjoy hunting, fishing, boating, camping, target archery, home improvement projects, gardening, and watching Texas Ranger baseball with my family.
