My passions include volunteering with the Optimist Club and serving on 3 different City of Royal Oak volunteer committees. In my increasingly rare, spare time, I love to play golf and follow all the major Detroit sports teams. Dawne and I have been married for 36 years and we have twin daughters, Andrea and Angela who both live in Chicago. Andrea was married to Paul Mugler last summer and we have 2 grand-dogs - Rudi and Eleanor.
