My greatest enjoyment is my family. I enjoy bike riding with my wife, children, and grandchildren in the valley and at our summer home in Pinetop. I also enjoy riding the waves and jogging along the beach in Del Mar and hiking up North Mountain every week when summer is over. In the fall, my Saturdays are occupied taking my grandchildren to their soccer games. Sunday afternoons are usually spent watching football.
