I came to Maplewood Cemetery in 2010 and became manager in 2019. During this time and with my predecessor, John Dick, several changes were made to the cemetery. Most notably Maplewood added a new cremation scattering garden called The Woods, we began offering granite monuments, and we adopted a new data-based software program which greatly enhanced our record keeping. We have a very helpful staff who understand that we are not just in the cemetery business, but in the people business.
I started working in the cemetery industry back in 1977 and am currently the President of the Indiana Cemetery Association. My term of office ends in October of 2024.
I live in Noblesville along with my wife Beverly and Cooper, our English Golden Retriever. Being a transplanted Hoosier, since I grew up in Western Pennsylvania, my favorite sports teams are the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Steelers.
