Sertoman of the Day:   Dave Miley was born on the day FDR was inaugurated for the 3rd time, Jan 20th, 1941, in Indianapolis, Ind., next to the White River, in the Merion Co. Methodist Hospital (the same hospital the race car drivers go to if they have an accident). He grew up near a racetrack and in the winter, the kids would sled down the banked turns of the track.

At the age of 4, the family moved to Denver in 1944, his father worked at the Remington Arms plant but that only lasted 6 months do to the end of the War. In 1951, the family lived on Elati St. and Dave and Bob Schlageter terrorized the neighborhood. At 13, Dave’s dad told “Shorty” he could start crawling around in attics installing insulation. He could do 7 houses a day at $3/house. Dave attended several grade schools but graduated from Englewood High in 1959. Dave played football in H.S. with Dough Harder’s brother, Dave and somehow, Dave and Dave switched girlfriends.

Dave graduated from CSU with a major in Business Admin and ROTC. In 1964, he joined the U.S. Air Force, went to flight school in Williams, AZ and served with the 352nd in Vietnam. After 6-1/2 years, he left the service in 1971 and since the airlines were laying pilots off, Dave got his Real Estate license and now does mostly commercial stuff. Dave earned the Bronze Star.

Dave married Karen Nov. 25th 1959 and they have 2 kids and 3 grandkids. Karen was a classmate of Dave’s and he is still active in the church they got married in. Bob Voth got Dave to join the South Suburban club in ‘72’, and then switched to Arapahoe. He was the President in ‘78’ and Governor in ‘95’. He has held all positions except secretary. He was also the Sertoman of the Year in 1991. Dave is a military history buff and he likes golf and auto racing, especially midgets. In Jan, he goes to OK to watch indoor racing. He also is a foster pet owner with 3 Greyhound’s.  Listen to Dave Miley.mp3

Program:  Randy Smith introduced Joe Townsend, who survived a small plane crash but lost his wife and two daughters.  He wrote a book about it and was here to tell us part of his story. 
This book is inspirational and serious because it is about a real life accident and overcoming adversity. Even though those are heavy topics- it is also important for us to capture Joe’s unique personality and sense of humor. It adds to the message we are trying to deliver.
Overview – and how this book is different!
The purpose of Soul Survivor is to tell the real life story of Joe Townsend, who was flying one day with his family and due to mechanical failure – the small plane he was piloting crashed- killing Joe’s wife and two small daughters. Joe was critically injured and survived brain injury, a stroke, hours of surgery and months of physical and emotional pain to survive and then to thrive. Through grit and determination, he then began to rebuild a new life. This inspirational real life tale of overcoming adversity will get people to realize their own true potential. When they read this story, they will understand that if one man can overcome this kind of horrific adversity, then anything in life is possible. There are no limits.  Listen to Joe Townsend.mp3
