Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Colin Roetman


30 years is a lot longer time to look back than it seams. I tell my children often that when the older people in your life give you warnings to enjoy the people, things you do and have: listen, because life goes by faster as you get older and they are so right.

I was in many extra curricular activities Wrestling, Football, and Singing with Choir, POPs Group, Musicals. Also FFA and 4-H were part of my schedule but my biggest passion was wrestling. Watching the Olympics this week reminds me that my goal was always to compete at the games, but my career was cut short by a chronic illness that has bothered me since College but has been diagnosed recently and is doing better.
I was always better at tasks and things than people. There were always my team mates during the various seasons, but the most influential group was the “Bady Boys”. Without these guys I am afraid my life and Faith would have turned out very different and I have never understood why they decided to include me. I have lost touch with these guys but have set out to be a better friend and pay more attention to people than tasks.

I am married to the love of my life Charlotte; we are celebrating our 26th anniversary tonight. (Which reminds me I have to go shopping now, be back latter?)_____________. Back now that was close. My three daughters Joslynn 25 yrs was just married a couple of weeks ago, Nadiya 20 yrs is engaged to be married next summer, and Chelsea 19 is leaving for College in three days. My Father, Ryland is living in Branson, MO and is remarried to a wonderful lady. Mom, Shirley passes away after a battle with sclaraderma some 17 years ago.

I went to SDSU just after high school and roomed with Eric Shield for one year then back to Worthington JC for another year. At that time I was married and moved to the Atlanta GA area for 18 years. During that time I worked for a small home builder and continued my education at Clayton State and eventually an engineering program at Georgia Tech. My work and family schedule didn’t allow me to finish my degree. I finally graduated in 2003 from Hawthorn University. While working with the builder (Bob Adams Homes) I moved through every job in the construction management business and finally was able to specialize in Land Development. After being laid off in GA we were able to move back to Minnesota, I was the Sr. Land Development Manager for Toll Brothers, Inc. Now having been laid off during the current housing slump Char and I have started out own company Designing and Manufacturing Concrete Counter Tops and Accents. This is a far stretch from the Project Management I had been doing; but it allows me to work with my hands and do art and engineering at the same time. Hobbies – I hunt and fish when I can.

Persons I haven't seen is Joel Strom & Scott Coyle. Joel was a neighbor and close childhood friend and I hung with Scott some after school. I have tried to keep in touch with both to no avail.

Regrets as I mentioned to much on the tasks and not enough on the people. I am sure I helped some people in high school but fear I hurt far to many and for that I humbly ask your forgiveness.

God bless
