I participated in the Nevada State Farm Bureau organization and served three terms as our county president. Me and my wife, Carol, raised three children: Steven, Clint and Suzanne and have enjoyed their spouses and the many grandchildren they gave us. We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary this year.
Throughout my life, I have joined many local and state team roping groups. I have been a member of the PRCA since 1962, but my rodeos entered were limited because of ranching duties. I was very fortunate to be fairly competitive and placed at many that I entered.
After my semi retirement, I joined the NSPRA (NOTRA) and traveled intensely for several years, winning three World Championships and one Canadian Senior Title in team roping. During this time we saw much of our beautiful country, met many fine people and made life long friends and memories, as far east as Alabama, north into Canada, south into Arizona and all the states between them.
I still rodeo as a PRCA Gold Card Member in the Gold Card Competition and am fortunate to be healthy enough to rope at many jackpots around the country.
