Sun City West
I am retired from the Boeing Company, and loving it with my dear wife Pam.
Faith, family, and friends are important to me. We have two beautiful daughters, and three sweet granddaughters. I like to read, bike, hike, and float in the swimming pool.

Favorite Things :
I enjoy singer/songwriters like Mark Knopfler, Neil Young, Bruce Cockburn, Van Morrison, Jesse Winchester, Emmylou Harris, and others. I typically read 100 books a year, although in covid 2020 I'm currently on my 155th book. I like history and biography, as well as an eclectic assortment of fiction and non-fiction.
Where I live :
I am a Seattle native, and still spend summers in the great northwest. Most of the year we are in Sun City West, which has been named #1 retirement community in Arizona, as well as one of the top retirement communities in the US. We have more than 100 chartered clubs covering most interests, four beautiful recreation centers, each with swimming pools and fitness areas, as well as various other facilities. It's friendly and fun here, with plenty of sunshine.
Pickleball Community in my Hometown :
Sun City West boasts the largest pickleball club in Arizona, with 1,500+ members of all skill levels, as well as 26 dedicated courts, with more being planned. In the summer, I enjoy spirited rec play in the Seattle area, birthplace of pickleball, and home to many skilled players.
Pickleball Experiences :
I started playing pickleball in the late seventies at the Everett, Washington YMCA. I am a 5.0 rated player mostly enjoying good recreational play, with the occasional tournament.
