A 25 year resident of North Canton who is currently somewhat retired having spent the last seven years providing daycare for my two grandchildren. In the period from retirement to daycare I worked as an Ohio Certified Nursery Technician at Barthel's Garden Center. I also worked at a cholcolate factory, a flower shop, and I did the Hartville Flea Market for several years where I sold concrete geese and clothing for them. My wife of 44 years is a 911 operator for Stark County. My hobbies include flower gardening, origami, balloon twisting and golf when I can afford it. I enjoy challenges; being around intelligent people of substance; and I like to keep active.
