My wife Nancy and I have been married for 37 years. We have three adult sons and two grandchildren. When I’m not in the office, I enjoy creating blown glass art. I have been blowing glass for 9 years. You can see my glass art at Garry Oak Gallery located on Pioneer Way in Oak Harbor or at www.garryoakgallery.com. My blown glass art as well as other local artists are displayed in my office.
