Born in Kalamazoo and raised in St. Joseph, Michigan I moved to Augusta, Georgia in 1982. While attending Augusta State University I held several positions for Claffey Printing Company as well as a brief stint as a lifeguard at Petersburg Station Country Club. In 1992 I made the decision to move back to St. Joseph and work with my father at what is now the Parrett Company. It was originally named Parrett Business Machines when my grandfather opened the doors in 1961.
While working at Parrett Company our office manager introduced me to her twin sister who later became my beautiful wife, Karrie. We have been happily married for over 15 years and have 2 amazing sons, Kaleb and Kole. Both attend St. Joseph Public Schools and are very active in baseball, soccer and basketball.
Most, if not all, of my spare time is spent with my wife and children. I coach, assist or manage my boys’ sports teams which can be up to 3 or more at any given time! However, we still make time to be a family and cherish our time together at home or on vacation. I am a firm believer in keeping an active lifestyle and supporting it with proper nutrition and frequent exercise. I also believe that you get out of life what you put into it – period.
