Growing up in Yugoslavia, construction was always a family business. We enjoyed working alongside family members and being able to support family values. We would love to have our children join our business one day and now we have one more family member to focus on.
On November 19, 2015, I became a first time grandparent. My granddaughter, Harper Kathleen Bilot, was brought into this world by my oldest daughter Teryn who currently lives in Wisconsin. Lisa, my wife, was in the delivery room and got to be there for the labor. It was a very emotional experience that created a new bond between her and Teryn. Harper was only 6 pounds 8 ounces and 20 inches long but she was perfectly healthy and surprisingly strong. I flew to Wisconsin less than a week after Harper’s birth and she instantly stole my heart. Jake and Sarah, my two younger children, and Janet, my mother-in-law, came to Wisconsin also and we got to have our first thanksgiving together as one big family.
