Biographical information

I was born 23 February 1946. My wife and I were married October 19, 1968. I have three sons and one grandson. I served in the US Army from 1964 through 1968. I spent one tour on Viet Nam where I received several decorations (Army Commendation Medal, Army Good Conduct Medal, Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal). I graduated from McKinley Technical Institute with degrees in Computer Science and Accounting. I worked for IBM for 25 years then Mount Union College. I am now retired. Since I left Mount Union College I have been studying the first three centuries of church history and received a degree in Religion and have been ordained.

Design rationale

Crest is that of Asena, the “mother” of the Royal Ashina Clan. The wolf head is the totem of the Ashina Royal Clan. The clan was the ruling class in the GOK-Turk and Khazarian Khaganates. My ancestor has been traced from The Ashina through investigation including DNA testing. The Flaming Heart is my love and devotion to my family. The battle axe represents my service to my country and my military duty. The cross is my belief in God and my ordination. The Cross also represents the conversion to Christianity from the Ashkenazi Jewish community of the Khazarian state. The motto is what my life is about, Love of family, Honor for county and Faith in God.
