About Joseph Hayman:

Mary and i are retired and living in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina near Asheville.  We have lived in several areas of the country due to work transfers but are originally both from the Quad City area in Illinois.  We went to high school together and married after the military and Monmouth College for me and the University of Illinois for Mary.  We operated a farm and trucking business for a number of years before I took a position for Snyders Lance in Charlotte, NC.  I retired from that company as Vice President of Manufacturing for US Operations.  This included responsibility for 9 snack food plants east of the Mississippi.  Mary graduated in education and taught Junior and Senior High School P.E. during much of this time.

We have two sons.  The oldest lives with his wife in Ft Mill, SC and they have two daughters, 20, and 22, who both attend the University of South Carolina.  Our younger son lives in Deerfield, Il with his wife and three year old son.

We raised our family on a farm near the Quad City area, with animals always a large and important part of all our lives.  We raised and cared for cattle, hogs, and horses on the farm for many years.  Our sons both raised Angus calves for show.  During these years we always had 2 or 3 dogs, Dachshunds and Golden Retrievers,  and several cats.  We also raised Dachshund pups for several years while our sons were young.  We currently have an 8 year old Dachshund named Wilbur.  Our oldest son Scott carried on the family tradition by raising Dachshunds while his daughters were young and Wilbur came from them.  Our sons kid that Wilbur is the third brother.

Mary and I have always had pets and farm animals as an important part of our lives.  We both grew up on farms near Aledo, Illinois.  Caring for both our pets and farm animals was a fun and important part of our lives from the earliest age. This also has given us a live time of experience in not only day to day care but recognizing and responding to pet health issues.  It is very natural for us and something we love doing.

Employer in Charlotte, North Carolina

Phil and I were at Snyders Lance at the same time. He was the Quality Assurance Manager for manufacturing plants under my supervision. This created a friendly but separate work environment that I believe would allow Phil to well understand and reference my character.
