Tim (a US Navy Vietnam Veteran) and Cathy moved to Marco Island in 1992 with Catherine (2) and Claire (9 months). Our son, Sean, arrived in 1996, the same year we finished building our new facility. All our children grew up on Marco Island and all worked in the shop beside us through their teenage years. Today, Catherine has earned her PhD and is happily married to Mitch Cordova. Claire is happily married to Joe Lewis and residing in West Chester, Pa. Sean graduated Florida Gulf Coast University and is a Naval Aviator Officer (Lieutenant JG) currently training on jets before he moves on to fly the E2-Hawkeye. Catherine and Claire built the The Celtic Spirit School of Irish Dance on Marco which Catherine still operates today. Finnegan is our newest dog - or 4th child as our friend like to say...

Many customers know Sean, as you've watched him grow up and then work in the shop through his high school and later college years. He worked hard learning the trade from his dad. But he has now worked harder for his dream – which has come true… He is a Naval Aviator Officer currently training on jets before his dream to be a "tailhook" flying the E2-Hawkeye.
