PERSONAL VIEWS The Key Peninsula will experience unprecedented growth during the next 20 years. Now is the time to assemble the land and facilities that will serve the population of the future. Every aspect of recreational facility: trails, passive parks, active parks, waterfront and uplands must be acquired and managed as fiscal responsibility dictates. Every source of funding must be explored and secured if possible. My wife of 44 years, Georganne and I live in Vaughn, we have four married adult children and nine grandchildren. We are very active in their lives.

Bob has been visiting the Key Peninsula since 1998 when he and his wife purchased property here. Having grown up in in the Northeast, Bob migrated West over the past 40 years with time in Boulder, CO, Madison WI and Portland OR. Bob and his wife Barbara settled in Woodinville in 1988 and resided there and raised their two sons. Bob had a career in restaurant management for 20 years. He then became the owner operator of a Home Inspection business until retiring and moving full time to Lakebay in June of 2015.
The decision to retire to the Key Peninsula was an easy one, given the access to the beautiful South Sound waters and the impressive parks system. Exploring the outdoors has always been a part of our lives and involvement with the Parks Foundation gives me a way to give back to our wonderful community as well as to help the parks department achieve its goals.
