A good bit of my life, I have been around construction of some sort. In my teens I was helping my father pour concrete curbs and sidewalks, as well as basements and garage floors for some of the larger home builders in the area. After graduating from Boyertown in 1967, I went on and graduated from Penn State in 1971. Since graduating from Penn St., I have been working in the pool and construction business. While we were still small and growing as a company during the 70’s, I was responsible for operating the backhoe, driving our dump truck, pouring concrete, and also performing any pool service we had in the evening after building pools. Fronheiser Pools continued to operate out of a garage behind my parent’s house until we outgrew that location and built a new store with over 8,000 sq. ft. of showroom space in 1996. That garage behind what was my parent’s house now serves as our current construction office and design center. Due to our strong presence in Berks County and in the surrounding Reading area, we added a second store in Sinking Spring to better serve our customers in that area.
I am happily married now for almost 43 years. I have three children and four grandchildren. I was very much involved in competitive swimming when my children were young. I was involved throughout the 80’s and 90’s in both the local and regional chapters of the National Spa and Pool Association. I was president of the local chapter for two years in the 90’s and I sat on the regional board for several years as well. I am currently a Certified Building Professional through our trade organization. I am also very active in my church at this time and I sit on the Deacon Board.
