Born in Sacramento, CA and one of 4 children of Jon and Geraldine Dudenhoeffer. My father retired from the Air-Force in 1980 and we moved to Erie because my father was offered a job from his brother Larrie, whom at the time was President at Klein Plating. That summer I started out cutting the grass and ended up working in every department throughout my high school years. Staying as a laborer after high school for a few short years made me decide it was time I went to college and I majored in computer science. After college, my father asked me to come to Klein’s and learn the computer system and work as a data entry clerk in 1993. After 13 years learning plating requirements, costs associated with labor and the plating process and while still taking care of the computer system, I applied for and was awarded the position of Sales manager in 2006. I’m happily married to my wife Angela since 1996 and we worship God, enjoy life and we’re living the American dream.
