I was born in Sapulpa, Oklahoma in 1955 and lived there until I went to college in 1973. I attended the University of Arkansas (Whooo Pig Soooiiiieeee) and graduated in 1978 with a BS in Music Education.
In 1978, I married my wife, Susan, right out of college and have three children, Aaron, 32, Sara, 30, and Will, 20. In 2009, Sara married Brady Ross and they have a son, William Tucker. My youngest son, Will, is a Junior at Texas A & M. Susan and I divorced in 2016.
I have one sister, Diane, who lives in Garland, Texas.
My hobbies all have something to do with music. I have loved
all kinds of music since I was very young. I took piano lessons as a child
and then in fifth grade, I started in band, playing percussion. I have played
percussion ever since. My senior year in high school I made the Oklahoma All-State
Band. In college I was a featured soloist with the University of Arkansas Symphonic
Band and The U of A Percussion Ensemble. I now play in the Allen Philharmonic
Orchestra and with the Cathedral Of Hope Church Orchestra.
