Roger began his career in the
mechanical engineering field, where he held various engineering positions
throughout Missouri until 1984, when he changed his career path. Since
that time Roger has accumulated over 32 years of experience in the HVAC field. In 1986, he and his family moved to Fresno,
California, where he later became a member of UA Local 246 – Plumbers, Pipe,
Steam & Refrigeration Fitters, and attended the Joint Apprenticeship
Training Program, receiving
his Journeyman card in 1994. During this
time, Roger’s work expanded into the Commercial/Industrial HVAC field,
including controls. Roger
also served as an Instructor at the UA Local Union #246 Joint Apprenticeship
Training School. After years of worsening
knee problems, Roger was forced to have partial knee replacement surgery in
2003, and was told by the surgeon that he could not return to the field. While recovering from surgery, Roger served
as the Refrigeration & Controls Instructor at San Joaquin Valley
College. At this point, Roger pursued
his Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management at Fresno Pacific University. Since graduation, Roger has served as Service
Manager and Operations Manager at multiple companies.
In 2016, Roger was honored to join
four of his colleagues, all extremely talented in their specialized areas, to
form Precision Mechanical Solutions, Inc., where he serves as President and
Chief Financial Officer.
Roger resides with Tammy, his wife of
38 years, in Fresno. They have been
blessed with three adult married children and six grandchildren. In addition to attending T-ball and soccer
games to watch his grandchildren, Roger enjoys playing golf, venturing into the
mountains on his newly acquired motorcycle with his two sons and son-in-law, target
shooting, and watching his St. Louis Cardinals.
He and his wife attend Peoples Church in Fresno.
