North Central PAC Members’ Introductions
Salmon River Senior Citizens
121 South Lodge St
I became involved with the Salmon River Senior Citizens in 2010 and with help from other board members we created our organization to be a 501 (c)3. I helped by volunteering my time to transporting those who couldn’t drive to the center for the congregate meals and then it eventually turned into also bringing them to doctor appointments.
In 2013 I was approached by Idaho FoodBank to become a partner with them to take over a mobile distribution once a month. I had great help in understanding the mechanisms of such a project and then it led to having another food pantry open for those in need in our community. I quickly outgrew sharing space with the City of Riggins and received donations for a 12×32 building for this operation. For our small community we help with food donations close to 100 families.
The other segment of my duties included getting grant funds to have our own transportation system and with the sponsorship of St. Lukes and Syringa Hospitals we run a route twice a week for those seniors, disabled to meeting medical attention. I’m still learning but with God’s help I will serve the PAC with the most integrity and work to meet the hunger needs of our communities.

When I was asked to write this brief biography, I deliberately delayed doing so, because feeding people isn’t about me at all, it is all about what God calls each and every one of us to do. I am reminded of a quotation in scripture that says, “When you do it unto even the least of my brethren, you do it unto ME.” I do what I do because God has given me the privilege of being in a place at a time when I can help others who so desperately need support.
I am married for 49 years to my wife, Liz. We have four children and fourteen grandchildren.
I have a BA. and a MA. in education with an additional 60 semester hours in educational administration.
My background is education. I was a school principal in Mesa, Arizona for 35 years. After retiring, my wife and I moved to Orofino, Idaho where I continued as an elementary school principal for an additional five years. Then the real work began….
I have directed Lifeline Food Pantry in Orofino, Idaho for the past four years. I am blessed to have thirty-three regular, long time volunteers working beside and in front of me, helping to meet the needs of our clients who now number close to 700 individuals.
We are blessed to have excellent community support and enjoy our “partnership” with Idaho Food Bank.
