Maine Knights of Columbus
I was born in Winslow, ME, and spent nine years with the Ursuline’s at Mount Merici Catholic School. After graduating from Winslow High School, I attended the University of Maine at Orono for two and a half years, majoring in music education and mechanical engineering. I then transferred to Thomas College, graduating with a BS in Marketing Management, and then earned an MS in Business from Husson College.
Currently, I own Berry’s Stationers in Downtown Waterville, an art and office supply, and custom picture framing business, which has been in operation since 1897.
At the young age of 18, I couldn’t wait to join the Order, and the relatively new council in Winslow. Once I began, I was excited to show the colors and joined the Patriotic Degree. I have held most positions in the Council, including Grand Knight and Financial Secretary, and in the Assembly as well, including Faithful Navigator and Faithful Comptroller. I served six years as a District Deputy for Past State Deputies Roger Melancon, Richard King, and Walter Golojuch. Most recently, I served eight years as the State Youth Activities Director. I have captained our Admission Degree team, as well as the Kennebec Valley Major Degree Team, and worked on the Patriotic Degree team.
My wife Barbara and I were married in 2007, and I gained two step-children, Stephanie and Nicholas. We live in Augusta, have both been active in different ministries in our home parish of St. Michael’s, and are fully committed to serving the Maine State Council. At the 123rd Maine State Convention in 2018, I was elected to the position of State Advocate. I am looking forward to meeting and working with all of you in this capacity over the next two years.
