Chris’s Iowa roots run deep. His great-grandfather settled in Coin, Iowa which is located in Page County in southern Iowa. Chris’s grandfather was born on the farm and lived there until early adulthood at which time he moved to Carroll and opened a small service station. After leaving Iowa to participate in the War effort, he returned and settled in Waterloo and went to work for John Deere. Chris’s mother was born and raised in Waterloo as were his many uncles and other family members.

Chris is proud of his Iowan history and is proud to be helping injured Iowans.
