Here we are! I’m married to Holly (née Olsen). Our children are Heidi, Steven, one who wishes to remain nameless, and Caroline. Heidi has two children (our grandchildren), Skyler and Sage, and Steven has one child (again, our grandchild) Natalie. We also have various pets in our family.

My father passed away in 2002. Here is a brief, virtual memorial to him, but he lives on in our memories and in the memories and lives of all whom he touched.

Here are some pictures of Holly. In the leftmost, she's on a ship at sea. The next picture is of her on a hill overlooking a bay in French Polynesia (Tahiti). The third picture is her on a riverboat on the Sacramento River. The next one shows Holly in her garden, with a very happy Scout trotting over to her. The second from the right was taken at Yosemite National Park. The rightmost shows Holly before the library at Ephesus, which we visited when I was attending the PETRA conference in Samos. Fitting, as she is on the Library Advisory Board for Yolo County.
Here are some pictures of Heidi. She’s a wedding planner, and the first picture shows her setting up a wedding. She’s enjoying the outdoors at Guerneville in the second. The third one is her in the Blue Grotto in Capri, Italy. The next one is of her sitting on the Iron Throne in Dubrovnik (it’s a reference to Game of Thrones). The last was taken at the Sacramento Zoo in the giraffe area (Sage later fed a giraffe — they have long tongues).
Here are some pictures of Steven. The first one is with his then-fiancée Brianna, taken at Easter; they subsequently married. Here are some pictures of the wedding. The second one shows him clowning with Skyler and Sage, and the third with Skyler. In the fourth, Steven is holding one of our chickens.
My third child asked me not to post any pictures in which he was the focus.
Here are some pictures of Caroline. The first picture is Caroline, right after she received her Master of Arts in Art History from Stony Brook University — we’re so proud of her! The second is of her at her graduation from Willamette University; she got her Bachelor of Arts in Art History and Archeology. In the third, she is on a bridge over a canal in Venice, Italy. The fourth one is Caroline with her big sister Heidi.
Here are some pictures of Skyler. He’s with his mom, Heidi, in the first picture, and his sister Sage at the Sacramento Zoo in the third.
Here are some pictures of Sage. In the first, she played the part of a bridesmaid for a photo shoot for Heidi’s business. The beach in the second picture is in Santa Cruz. The third is with grandpa (me) at Thanksgiving dinner, and in the fourth, she is with Mommy (Heidi).
Here are some pictures of Natalie. In the first, she’s looking up at the camera, saying hello. In the second, she and her parents are enjoying a day in the snow. Grandma Holly is holding a very contented Natalie in the next one, and in the last one Natalie is smiling for the camera.
Here are some pictures of our pets, past and present. The first two pictures are of our cat, named Mouse; the first is her as a kitten and the second is her grown up, sleeping on the bed sleeping on the bed. The third is her checking out the camera. The last picture is of one of our chickens checking out the yard.
One of our cats, Fur, died on December 4, 2011. Here is a brief memorial for him. Puff, another of our cats, died on July 13, 2015. Here is a brief memorial for her. Our beloved dog, Scout, also passed away. They are missed by everyone—including their friends, the other pets.
Well, that’s us! Thanks for visiting.
