My dad was the oldest of four boys growing up. He didn’t get the work stuff easy growing up, always worked for what he wanted. He graduated high school and went to college in Wadena for Electrical. He later went on and got his masters to start his own business. He started working at Deco before he owned his own business then he got sick of his boss so he decided he wanted to be a boss. He started Trotter Elec., which is currently still running and very successful. He has a lot of clients his name is known all over. My dad is a very hard worker, never gives up. As a father he has done what he has needed to do, by putting food one the table for his family for several years. It is my senior year and my dad recently decided to take a job for him, working at BNSF, I am not so excited about how much he is gone. He loves doing something new though and of course the benefits are great. He works for 8 days on 6 off. His 6 days off he is running his electrical business. He is a father to Aimee and I, he adopted Aimee when she was a child. She looks at him as a father figure anyday before her real dad. He also was there just as much for my brother Kyle, but he also has his dad Steve. He has taught me basically everything growing up anywhere from cutting wood to common sense stuff, and the Do’s & Dont’s . He is a great role model he has never been into bad stuff. Jeff Scott Trotter is my hero for many reasons. He is a great Dad and Grandpa. I wouldn’t trade him for the world . So basically he is the MAN!
