How long have you lived in Parkes?
I’ve lived in Parkes all my life, so that’d be 64 years.
Where do you work? I’m self-employed. I own an earth moving and landscaping business, which I’ve run for 40 years.
What do you enjoy most about your work? It’s great doing different jobs all the time. I like working with different people, and facing different challenges. My favourite job has to be building swimming pools. I’ve got nine to do at the moment, everyone’s getting ready for summer!
What makes your day? I just like it when everything goes right. It’s great when you have no problems, no dramas, everything just works.
What do you do in your free time? I follow the kids around. A few have moved away, so we go visit them when we can. I don’t really play sport, but I do follow Rugby League; I’m a St George supporter.
How do you take your coffee? White no sugar.
Where would your dream holiday be?
Somewhere in Fiji. We’ve been there once before and it was incredible. It is such a nice spot, and there’s so much sight-seeing to do. The people there are so friendly, their culture is amazing. It’s just unbelievably lovely.
