What motivates your desire to give back?
Since moving to California, both Saint Joseph Medical Center and St. Charles Borromeo Church have become very important to my wife and me.
Why are you supporting the medical center?
Our three grandchildren were born there. We’ve also gone for lung surgery, several hip and knee operations, major back surgery, and a few kidney stones.
Why did you agree to join the foundation board?
The hospital and foundation are where we’ve met the greatest group of caring and dedicated people.
