It is an honor to be an elder at Dillman. Dillman has been a part of my life since high school. I married Cherry, my high school sweetheart in 1980. We have 3 children and 5 grandkids. After retiring from 25 years of law enforcement service, I am now employed by Clean Fuels National. I enjoy hunting, golfing, and spending time with my family. However, my greatest passion is to use my skills, talents, and abilities God has given me to further the Kingdom of Christ.
I am humbled to serve the Lord as part of Dillman Church. In my youth I grew up attending church and school in Bluffton. I can remember many Sunday’s being on the church bus as our family drove around picking up kids for church. My wife Juliann and I have three amazing children, Olivia, Harlie, and Hunter. I work at Nesco Specialty Rentals in Bluffton, but get the pleasure of serving our community through Dillman Church as Elder, Southern Wells School as a Board Member, NASP Archery Instructor, and an Outdoor Pursuits Instructor for local youth. I enjoy the outdoors and all it has to offer us.
Being part of Dillman Church has only grown our family’s faith in Christ. We have been welcomed and blessed by the Dillman Church Family. We accept with open hearts the paths the Lord will provide us to serve Christ.
I feel privileged to be an elder at Dillman Church and to be a part of the Elder Board. Kathy and I married in 1999 and between us have three adult children with eight grandchildren. I worked as a Project Engineer for 31 years, two years at Ball Corporation in Muncie and 29 years at Phelps Dodge Magnet Wire in Fort Wayne. I retired in 2006. I began farming at the age of nine with my father after the passing of my grandfather. I took over all the farming and operation of Miller Airport in 1997 when my father passed away. I still continue both operations today. Kathy and I became part of the church family in 2010. We were welcomed with open arms and made to feel at home. I look forward to continuing God’s will with His guidance.
