I attended Northwood University- Midland , MI - Business & Marketing and played freshman football. Then to CMU- Mt. Pleasant, MI- Business & Marketing.
I then went to work for Federal - Mogul Corp, - Southfield ,MI ( 1979) and moved to Denver in 1979 with Federal - Mogul and spent 18 yrs. with F-M in Sales with 4 - different divisions with many promotions along the way and then moving to the California Bay area ( Danville, CA). I then went to work for NTN Bearing- Mt. Prospect, IL- as a Western Regional Sales Manager for the OEM and Aftermarket group, covering 6 states and spent 5 yrs. with NTN. I then was recruited again by Renold Jeffrey- U.K. based Industrial Co. as Western Regional Sales Manager- OEM and Distribution covering 17 states and I spent 8 yrs. with them. I now work for Kaydon- SKF Bearing Corp. as Regional Sales Manager OEM. I sell custom bearings to the Medical, Semiconductor, Aero Space/ Defense and Heavy Equipment markets and have been with them for 5 yrs.
I have been married for 31 yrs. to my wife Beckee McKinley Breadon who I met in Denver , CO . when I lived there. She went to CU- Boulder and is from outside the Aspen area ( Glenwood Springs, CO) We just got back from a Christmas ski trip to Aspen Dec. 2013 and we really enjoy the area. We also enjoy traveling, Maui- Four Seasons Resort is one of our favorite places, which we go to every two years for 2 weeks. We also are only about 1 hour from the Napa wine country and we have become CA wine " snobs Ha Ha" and like to visit all the great wineries. The San Francisco Bay area is a great place, lots to do, with Pebble Beach- Carmel area so close and the Tahoe area is great also.
We like to entertain , pool BBQ's at the house and enjoying great food and drinks with friends. We also are big football fans , as I have had Stanford Football tickets for a while. We are S.F. 49er fans and Big Denver Bronco fans as well. See you all Aug. 2, I look forward to seeing everyone, it should be fun.

School Story

I think as I look back, we really had one of the best all around sports years ever in 1974. Many records. I remember all the 'keg' parties and just the GP culture was great. A good place growing up.
