Moving to Santa Barbara 64 years ago I graduated from Peabody, La Cumbre and Santa Barbara High School and received a B/A in Business Economics from Claremont MeKenna College. Mary and I have been married for 45 years and have 3 children and 8 grandchildren. I enjoyed a 42 year professional real estate career in Santa Barbara starting in 1965 with Heron Realty (founded in1948). I was Santa Barbara’s Realtor of the Year in 1973 and 1981 and The California Real Estate Association honored me with their highest honor, the California’s Distinguished Realtor, in 1992. I was a Director for City Commerce Bank and Mid-State Bank and Trust (a $2 billion dollar bank with 41 offices in the tri-counties) serving on their Audit Committees. I was the President of the Mid-State Bank Foundation and Chair of the Coldwell Banker Foundation. Both placed a heavy emphasis on education, youth and the arts. I am a Past President of Partners in Education and involved in its Computer For Families program for 15 years providing 9,200 computers free to South Coast families. Provided 250 classroom URLs through the Teacher Web program. I helped raise $4,000,000 to sustain the CFF program.
