  Hometown: Watertown, South Dakota   33 FW Maintenance Professional of the Year for 1995.   Considered by most as the “Resident Mechanic of the F-15.   The consummate professional, indisputably recognized as the squadron’s finest crew chief. He carried out his duties with quiet resolve and dedication to detail. The first certified technician in the wing.   He had one of the largest hearts and strongest commitment to friendships and family. His stoic demeanor was shed when carousing with friends. That’s when his fun loving and utterly hysterical persona shone through. He loved his wife, friends, fast cars, tuning up his 93 Mustang, and rock and roll.
