After attending the University of Waterloo, majoring in Recreation and Leisure Studies with a minor in Social Development studies (1989-1994), I married my lovely wife Sue, and we moved to Kingston, ON to join Navigator Staff.
In the past 23 years on staff I have had many different roles and responsibilities, all of which despite the ups and downs have been a joyful expression of what God has given me to do. These include: Queen's Campus Director, Eastern Ontario Team Leader, National Leadership Team member. Currently I am the Kingston ministry director, Queen's hockey chaplain, city coach for Calgary and Edmonton, and National Intern Developmet Coordinator.
Or family is all grown up now. September 2018 represents the official "empty nest". I hear it can be a temporary thing but as of September our boys will be as follows:
Zach - 2nd year intern with the Navigators at the University of Calgary
Cam - Starting first year at Sheridan College Film and Television 4 year degree program
Ryan - 2nd year at MacMaster in Kinesiology
Zachary (21) is passionate about Parkour. Parkour is the utlimate in physical movement activity. Many people would call it dangerous. Zach sees it as perfectly safe if you train right for it and approach your limits with a healthy respect in addition to challenging them.
Cameron (19) has his grade 8 piano , loves movies and music concerts, is currently works at Score Pizza in Kingston
Ryan (19) has grade 8 piano exam and has gotten into student government and singing in "Mac Appella" while in school.
With the boys leaving home Sue tried a few different work paths at a private school, house painting, and now has settled into full time work at Trek Bycicle Kinston doing both sales and service. I think that is more than a few people's dream job out there. And Dan gets to try cool bikes!! Staying fit, healthy, and strong, continues to be a restorative and essential part of my life. All work and no play makes me not a good husband and father.
For all of us balancing our busy lives with time to restore and be together is the challenge and is a constantly shifting target especially as the boys take flight... okay, maybe it is a little easier for Sue and I to take some time to restore! We continue to discover what it means to love each other, our community, and our God well!
