Retired Captain from Prison System as well as Retired Veteran. I joined the U.S. Army at 19 yrs old and completed 5 years active duty at the rank of SSGT. I then was hired by the PA Dept. Of Corrections and served 25 yrs retiring at the rank of Capt. I was married for 20 yrs with four children. I worked long hours to include weekends and holidays to provide a good life for them all. My wife worked also and we made sure our kids were involved in every sport and activities possible. We made then study hard and they all graduated from universities and are well respected professional adults now. But our marriage failed. We have so much to the raising of our children and not enough love and respect to each other. I stayed in this loveless marriage for my children's sake and well being. Sleeping on the couch the last 5 years of it. I gave them all I had financially to keep the house and paid for their education and moved to my mountain cabin that I completely remodeled myself and made it a nice year round home. I go to church every Sunday and ask God to keep me strong and faithful to my religion. I hope one day I can find a woman to truly love me for who I am. I am mostly a giver of love, respect, care and compassion when I get the same in return. I enjoy the outdoors, fishing, hunting, travel and sports on TV. I am good at carpentry, masonry and general household maintenance. My father was a contractor and I was an engineer in the military. I love life, I want a happy, healthy woman to enjoy it with me in the next chapter.
