I am the owner and operator of Sterling Monument Company of Abilene since retiring from a 36-year career with the federal government; 20 of those years being active duty in the Air Force. During that time, I enjoyed golfing with Sterling Monument Founder, Sam Harris, and Dave Gillespie, owner of Abilene Monument. It was ultimately through these connections that I came to own the business and join the Sterling Monument family. I love this role, enjoy working with families and serving my community, and have become a certified monument installer. As a former veteran, I believe strongly in honoring those who have served, so we offer special discounts to veterans year-round.
