Always fun, fit, confident, compassionate, caring, successful, empathetic, fiscally responsible, spontaneous, sometimes a little wild seeks same. I enjoy long walks with the dog on the beach or the woods, sunsets from a deck, live music, KBCO, KTCL, happy hours, grilling, watching a good game, movies, road trips, visiting with family and friends. Handy around the house, cook a lot, work on my cars, do taxes, and groom my dog. The oldest of 5 with three younger sisters, proud father of a daughter and son, I was born and raised in the NW Chicago Suburbs, attended Marquette, U Wis Parkside, and SIU in the 70s, and lived in Colorado for 33 years being married for 30. I spent 25 years in the mortgage business and I was a caregiver to my wife with brain cancer for over three years and have taken a few off to travel and decide what I really want in my next relationship and career. I enjoy hanging out with my kids and their friends in their 30s and my parents in their 80s and a lot of friends and family of all ages spread throughout the Midwest to the Southern California coast.
