My wife Lisa and I moved to Puyallup 23 years ago to raise our family.  We have raised three daughters; Megan - 25, Paula - 23 and Abby -18; my how time flies.  We settled into the Crystal Ridge Neighborhood with thoughts of some day moving and building, that never happened as we stayed put.  Why? Because of family, friends, neighbors, community and a City of Puyallup that became home.
