I was born in Beech Grove, IN and am affectionately known as a “Grover”. My wife Rosie and I graduated from Roncalli High School and were married in 1980. We have three grown children who are all married. We are blessed with seven grandchildren and love being with them as much as possible. Since 2012 I have enjoyed volunteering at Riley Children’s Hospital in the NICU holding babies, and assisting people who are lost on the campus (Volunteer Impact Program). I also spend my free time doing family genealogy.

My background in construction comes from a utility company. I spent 40 years at AT&T performing and supporting many of the network construction builds with fiber optics, underground, and pole builds. I have a good knowledge of construction and am learning more each day.
