He joined the United States Army - Administration Supply - Battalion Level including Vietnam - Honorable Discharge - Staff Sergeant E-5. In the US Army, he was able to travel the world and see some amazing places. He often share these stories with family and friends.
He was married to Sharon L. Savoy for over 35 years. They have one son, Shamez. In 2006, his wife had a brain assault and he was introduced to the world of caregiving, the curve of understanding was steep and the time to learn was short. If you haven't been exposed to caregiving, don't worry, your time will come; you see there is no way in life that at some point you will not know, as you will need, become, or know someone who will need, or employ a caregiver. His passion is teaching and caring for others that have limited resources. In his spare time he enjoys reading, writing (it is a dream to have his writings published), watching movies, documentaries, and news.
