      They all helped in the park in one capacity or another while they were growing up. Don continued his education in Sales and Marketing. Rich was schooled in refrigeration, heating and air conditioning. Wendy's place was with her husband and his career so she didn't hae the opportunity to work with her brothers in the park. When Len passed away in 2005, Don took over as President and manager. Rich continued with the work force. It was a hard transition, but they succeeded. 

 

      Jim was only seven years old when the family moved to the park, but he would help out in his little ways until he reached his teens. He joined the work crew until he graduated. He then enlisted in the Navy Air Corp. When he got out of the service he became very interested in becoming an EMT. He went even further and took courses to become a flight paramedic. He had just graduated from that school and was ready to receive his wings when he tragically suffered a double aneurysm in the brain which took his life on July 7, 2001. He was only 38 years old.
