He received a call.well an offer, on Monday, September 26, 2016 that he just could not refuse and that he would not be returning home. This offer came with a huge assignment and a sign-on bonus.a reunion with family and friends he had not seen in many years. Job security was 110% and his new mission took him to a wonderful place where he is not going to have any more health issues keeping him from doing what he wants to do. He has left his wife, Sandy (Shue) Kukovich instructions to keep their family in check, as he has done for so many years.
