I grew up in Chicago enjoying the culinary and social benefits of an Italy-born mother and solely-Sicilian father.  Thus, I have an almost insatiable appetite for pasta, garlic, olive oil and people-contact.  
I met my kind-hearted, lovely wife Tara at a small California college.  Tara is an RN for the Sumner School District.  Our son Mickey is a Star Wars/Lord of the Rings expert and is the delight of our lives, and currently attends Walla Walla College.

My interests include eating Italian food, Bible studies, father-son nights, astronomy, humor, reading, racquetball, floor hockey, chaplaincy, Silverwood Theme Park, World War II history, a dash of hiking in the great Northwest and (did I mention?) Italian food.  I have a deep interest in knowing life’s meaning, Earth’s future and my own ultimate destiny, all as it relates to God. 

I began reading the Bible at the age of 16.  Gradually, my enthusiasm for Bible prophecy gave way to captivation with Jesus Christ, what He did, what He taught, Who He was/is.  After seven years of study, I accepted the God of the Bible as my own personal God and Jesus Christ as my personal Savior and Lord.

Thirty plus years after that decision, Jesus is still the most fascinating and captivating Person to me, and my commitment to know God and share his knowledge of God remains steadfast.

Over the years, I have held approximately fifteen jobs including factory, railroad, custodial, management and sales.  Much to my surprise, I began denominational pastoring in 1990 within the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Before landing in Puyallup, WA, in 2009 I pastored in northern California and northern Washington state.  My dream is that people who get to know me will get to  Jesus as a result, and experience life on the best level possible.

Anne grew up in a Christian home in the San Francisco Bay Area. Because her parents worked for United Air Lines, she was able to visit many places visiting family – England (yes, she did visit Sherwood Forest and no, she didn’t see Robin Hood!), Scotland and Chicago, where her love for the Chicago Cubs came from and attending Union College in Lincoln, Nebraska, where she learned to love pizza!! Following college Anne moved to the Portland/Vancouver area, got married and had three daughters…Tanya (Auburn, WA – who she moved in with July 2018 following the death of her husband), Michele (Helena, MT) and Jennifer (Covington, WA). Anne’s years of employment have taken on quite a few different occupations. She began her career in the Emergency Room at Portland Adventist Medical Center. In the years following, she drove a school bus, worked in a school kitchen, assistant Kindergarten teacher, working for a bank (and, no, they didn’t give out samples!) and being a church secretary! Anne loves Jesus with her whole heart and wants to share that love with others. Her passion is music and to encourage, help and love on people she encounters every day.
