Charlie Yerger’s initial degree was not predictive of what turned out to be his passion. He turned a degree in EMS/Paramedicine into a career of working with HVAC control systems. His HVAC career started as an installation foreman for a controls contractor, which led to working as a technician for a large residential and commercial HVAC contractor in central Texas. In 2006 Yerger joined Johnson Controls Inc. as a systems technician on a major projects team, doing service work in specialized building systems areas.
Charitable organization provides injured hiker with a wheelchair
March 6, 2017
Daniel Parker has worked in the construction business for the past 45 years, the last 28 of which were spent as a finish carpenter managing crews in Tigard, Oregon. Parker’s career started in California, where he learned finish carpentry and new home construction while working with a firm in Atherton. He then moved to Nova Scotia and was the owner of Maplewood Enterprises Construction.
Parker needs 24-hour in-home care, and after purchasing a home equipped with a patient lift and wheelchair entry, he had no funds to purchase the wheelchair he desired. An online search led him to the Joseph Groh Foundation, where he applied for a grant. Thanks to many supporters, it was able to grant Parker’s wish.
