What to say about me… what to say.  Well, let’s handle it with some bullet points.  In no particular order, I am…

  • Married to the all-too-nice and too-good-for-me Rebecca Elledge
  • We were married on June 17, 2006
  • Upon marriage, I inherited a wonderful step-son: Spencer Montgomery
  • Upon marriage, I also inherited a not-so-wonderful step-dog, Sophie “The Other Dog”
  • My first born child, Braelyn Grace Elledge, was born on January 9, 2008
  • January 9, 2008 is also Dave Matthews birthday.  Pretty cool, eh?
  • Grace is the name of one of Dave Matthews twin daughters.  The other’s name is Stella, but Stella Elledge doesn’t sound good when said together
  • My second child, Brody Carlen Elledge, was born on September 18, 2009
  • Carlen is my mother’s maiden name
  • I have the most awesome, yet often-gimp, dog: Hoover Woodrow Elledge.  He is an English Mastiff born October 4, 2006.
  • The middle name Woodrow came from the fact that Hoover, as a young pup, loved eating wood.
  • I am the Chief Operating Officer for a dedicated and managed server company called Codero
  • I am a (once proud) member of the Republican Party.
  • The “once proud” comes from the fact that I am extremely disenchanted by my own party, but it does better represent most of my beliefs than the other alternatives.
  • My parents are Steve and Vickie Elledge.
  • I have two older sisters, Stephanie Lovato and Wendy Lecher.
  • Thanks to my sisters, I have two great brother-in-laws, Michael Lovato and Tony Lecher, and six of the most awesome nephews and nieces you could ever have: Brandon, Nathan, Courtney and Keegan Lecher, plus Ashley Carnahan and Stephen Lovato.
  • I have two living grandparents:  Dorothy Elledge and Emmett Carlen.  Grandma is in her ninetys, and unfortunately my grandfather suffers from Alzheimers.
  • My paternal grandfather, Murray Elledge, passed away when I was 13 years old.  My maternal grandmother, Virginia “Grandma Cookie” Carlen, passed away when I was 34.  My gramps had plenty of diseases and my grandma passed from breast cancer.
  • I am so fortunate to have a wonderful, loving family.  We are all very close, and I am so thankful for that.
  • Baseball is my favorite sport.  I have coached baseball for 11 years, though not in the past three.  I have coached two State Championship teams.
  • Baseball coaching stints include Casper and Torrington Wyoming and Windsor Colorado.
  • Forgot to mention that I was born and raised in Casper.  Windy and cold.  Don’t miss that.
  • Spent many years in college studying math and physical education, as I always wanted to coach and become an athletic director.  Went to Casper College, Black Hills State University, and finally Colorado State University.
  • Go Rams!  Even though you screwed-up by getting rid of the legendary Sonny Lubick.
  • Sonny Lubick never went 0-fer in conference play… replacement coach can’t say the same.
  • Hosting my baseball team’s website with CommuniTech.net (now defunct) led me into my current career path and away from teaching math and coaching baseball.  All is good though, little regrets.
  • My family and I currently live in Overland Park, Kansas, a suburb of Kansas City.
  • I moved to Kansas City on July 3, 1999.  I have survived here for over ten years now!
  • I like to take pictures, as you can see by visiting my gallery.
  • I spend way too much time on the Internet.
  • I have run out of things to bullet-point about myself, for now at least.
  • Oh, some people call me “relledge”, pronounced rale-ige.
