Owner, Cascade Auto Repair
When and why did you move to Hermiston?
I moved here because my family was living here, in 1980. I’d been here off and on growing up.
What is your favorite place to eat?
I like them all — there’s one place, Ixtapa, that we go to a lot. I like their food.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
When I get spare time, I like fishing and golfing — recreational stuff.
What surprises you about Hermiston?
I think the fact that people are from all over the place. Growing up, being an army brat, everyone you met was from everywhere. It’s similar to that.
What was the last book you read?
I don’t really read books, but I like to read articles. The topic doesn’t matter, if I don’t know about it, I like to read about it.
What app or website do you use most other than Facebook?
I don’t use Facebook, actually. I like pro basketball, so probably NBA.com, I like to know what’s going on. I follow the Blazers.
What is the funniest thing that’s ever happened to you?
When a bunch of us guys got together and decided to do a charitable fundraiser. We decided to dress up like hula dancers with grass skirts, up on a stage. It was quite comical, and we did raise quite a bit of money.
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
I like Europe. I’ve been there a few times. If I had time, I’d go there and see some different places. I’ve been mostly to Germany, lived there.
What is one of your goals for the next 12 months?
To see my grandson. He lives in Nebraska. He’ll be a year old this month.
What is your proudest accomplishment?
My family, without a doubt. My wife and kids — great things.
