I am married to Mary Martin Carlisle.  We have celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary.  We have two children:  Elizabeth Carlisle White, who is married to David White, and Suzanne Carlisle Hudson, who is married to David Hudson.  We have one granddaughter, Mary Francis White.

I love working in my yard; spending time with family and friends; and sitting on the front porch working Sudoku puzzles.

My Personal/Professional Philosophy
Everyone is important!!  Each of us has the ability to rise above our circumstances and become victors instead of victims.  The person we become is that person because of the things we have experienced, and we can choose to look forward with excitement rather than backwards with regret.  It is my hope that, in some small way, I can help our children to use their past to find strength and to look forward with excitement toward their future.
