Meanwhile, Kevin grew up in Moorhead, Minnesota and eventually studied engineering at Moorhead State. He also grew up in the family business, saying, “There were nine of us kids – free labor to Dad.” That business was making and installing communication towers.

Their towers are all over the world, even Antarctica.
