With the chance to create an atmosphere where customers and employees would know that our goal is to strive to implement the simple but effective Golden Rule of treating others as you would be treated, is an environment that is the only true way to be in business.
Sterling and Leigh’s oldest son Abe (Baylor BA, 2011) and wife Debbie (Baylor BA, 2005) have three sons, Brooks, Walker and Davis and live in Carlsbad, CA.
