Favorite Wolcott meal: I like lots of our meals but particularly I like the lasagna from the homestyle menu & the cioppino on the diabetic menu
I grew up in St Joseph Missouri & graduated High School in 1969. Back then our Mom's stayed home & we ate home cooked meals every day. I eventually married my high school sweetheart after a stint in the Marine Corps. I was in the last combat unit when the Viet Nam war ended. There were less than 300 Americans there then. Over the years I worked various jobs & started a couple of businesses. Those experiences gave me the background for Wolcott Foods. Patti & I had a farm in Kansas City, Ks & we did petting zoos & pony rides for 36 years. We built a commercial kitchen on the farm for catering to company picnics, local families, & construction workers who were building the Legends Shopping Center. That got us started in the food business. Patti does the petting zoos today & my job is to see that people can have home cooked meals every day.

Favorite Wolcott meals: Lasagna, turkey dinner, chop steak, beef ragu, and fiesta chicken.
When I'm not at work: I have a gorgeous wife and a beautiful 3-year-old daughter that I spend all my time with. We enjoy cooking and doing outside activities. As a husband and first-time dad, I never knew how amazing life could be until they came into my life.
Favorite part of your job: Cooking meals people enjoy and meeting new clients.

Favorite Wolcott meal: Fiesta Chicken
Favorite part of your job: Connecting people with services they need
When I'm not at work: I have served on PTA executive boards in the Turner School District at the elementary, middle, high school, and council levels, in addition to formerly serving on the State Executive Board for Kansas PTA. I currently hold the position of Turner Elementary PTA President. I have one son, TJ, an Eagle Scout who is also deeply involved with several aspects of PTA and other community service efforts. He’s a corrections officer at Lansing, and serves as a fill in delivery aid here at Wolcott Foods when we need him.
I also serve as PR Chairman on the Turner Days Committee and as a member of the Turner Foundation, but my true passions are spending time with my two grandsons, Brantley & Taylor, and my 16 year involvement with Bikers Against Child Abuse where I serve as a child primary contact & patched member with the Kaw River, Kansas Chapter.
