When I am not working, I spend most of my time with my wife of 20 years, Cathy, and our 3 kids. I met Cathy while we were both attending First Baptist Church in our college years at Texas Tech. She is a teacher by degree, but now works full-time for E3. She is a great business partner and I couldn’t do what I do without her. More than that, though, she is an incredible wife and mom. Cathy grew up on a ranch in central Texas, and still enjoys going back to the hills and trees when we can.
Our oldest son, Clayton, followed in our college footprints, and is a proud Red Raider. He is majoring in business and loves the outdoors. He faced a major health challenge when he was thirteen that almost took his life. Through his recovery and rehab, he has proven himself to be one of the most determined and persevering people I’ve even known.
Carley, our only daughter, is in High School. She too is a very determined kid that loves life and wants everyone else to love it with her. She is a cheerleader and plays volleyball. I can’t wait to see what path she chooses in life, but whatever that may encompass; I know she will be successful because she’ll work as hard as is necessary to guarantee that.
Cole is our youngest. He attends elementary school and is one of the most easy-going kids I’ve ever seen. Like most “youngest” children, he has spent a lot of time at the gym or elsewhere watching his brother and sister compete and perform. As long as he has a pocket full of Legos to play with, he is usually good to go and good to stay for however long. His favorite sport is baseball, but his favorite pass-time is to make people laugh. I really think that is how he measures success at this point.
Cathy and I have worked with college students in the University Ministry at First Baptist Church in Lubbock ever since we graduated from Tech. That has been a constant for us for over 20 years. Being a dad is truly my favorite “hobby”. From coaching, to cheering, to helping with school; family-life is one of my top priorities. That’s a little about us. Thanks for caring enough to keep reading to the end.
