Name, ages of your family members, along with any details about your family you want to share
My wife Amber was raised in Fairbury, IL. We were married in July 2003, reside in Goodfield, IL, and now have 4 wonderful children. Jayden is almost 5 and cannot wait to start kindergarten in the fall. He is a very consciences and detail oriented person that hates to be wrong. Andrew is 3 and is our “wild child”. He is always coming up with some hilarious saying or comment. He also has a tendency to act without thinking of consequences. Because of this, he has made more than a few trips to the hospital/doctor. Our twin girls, Macy and Mariah, are 14 months old. Needless to say they have added so much joy, and so much stress all at the same time. Macy is very dramatic and emotional, and Mariah is calm, cool, and steady. Even though we have our share of stress with a growing family, we try to enjoy every moment.
How many years at Lighthouse Automotive: 12
What do you like most about your job/workplace
The fact that every day brings new challenges and experiences. Needless to say, the car business (especially service) is not boring! Also, being able to work with a fantastic group of people that are team oriented and work extremely hard. I also love the interaction and relationships I have made with our great customers.
Hobbies/things you enjoy during your free time
I don’t have much free time at this stage of life (see first question), but when I do, I love reading, computers, running, and board games. I also enjoy spending time with family, friends, and Church activities.
Favorite food: Pizza by far. I have a top 10 list that changes at times, but the top 3 never do (Tobins #1, Davis Brothers #2, Mickies #3).
Favorite Movie: Gettysburg, Ben Hur, The Great Escape, Cars.
Favorite Book: “The Bible”, “The Killer Angels”, Anything by Clive Cussler or Jeff Shaara
Favorite Quote/piece of advice: I have many, but one that comes to mind is from my uncle Jaye Rinkenberger. “At any point in life, you are never as bad as you think you are, and you are never as good as you think you are“. This quote always reminds me of the Biblical principal that we always have great worth in God’s eyes even if times are bad, but on the other hand, reminds us not to be puffed up with pride when times are good.
We came across a picture of our service team from 10 years ago. Wow things have changed. We now have 2 times this many service employees, and only 3 current employees are in this picture from 2000 (Mike Grimm far left, Culley Vanlaecken, 3rd from left, Paul Runyon, back row center). Enjoy!
