I founded Knight Coin & Stamp in 1966, in Gary, IN. In 1972, I moved to nearby Hobart, IN. In 1994, I purchased The Jewel Shop, a full service jewelry retail store, and a fixture in downtown Hobart for 35 years.
I was born in Gary, IN, in 1943, and graduated from Gary Tolleston High School in 1961, and Valparaiso University in 1965. I am life member number 867 in the American Numismatic Association.
I also collect antique pocket watches, and am a member of the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors since 1973. I am a past president of our local Peace Pipe Chapter.
My wife, Mary, and I were married in 1968 and have two adult children, John and Bridget.
