It is a special place to enjoy retirement
My wife Marge and I have been married for 59 years. We have 4 sons, 10 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. I served 4 years in the United States Marine Corps from November 1958 to December 1962 . My rank was Cpl ( E-4) Military MOS combat engineer. I was part owner of a concrete placing company and worked there for 45 years. l worked my way from laborer to vice president and co manager. We employed 200-400 people, placing 1000 to 2000 yards of cement a day. While our boys were growing up I was very active in youth sports being a board member, sponsoring, coaching, umpiring and refereeing baseball, basketball and football. Upon our retirement Marge and I traveled by motorhome visiting most of the 48 states. We drove to Alaska going through parts of Canada.
We purchased a residence in Roadhaven in 2008 and have been coming here every year since. We enjoy our time here. It is a special place to enjoy retirement. I have been active here serving as vice president and president of bocce ball club, pickleball club and I am currently secretary of the Square and compass club. I have served as Vice president and I am currently President of Roadhaven HOA board of directors.
Thank you for allowing me to serve on your Board.

My name is Tom Beavers. My wife, Susie, and I have been married for 49 years. We have 2 sons and daughter-in-law’s, and 4 grandchildren.
I am president of the Square & Compass Club and have helped out with men’s golf league.
We (my wife and I) continue to be involved in our family business, Edwardsville Plumbing in Edwardsville, IL, as we have for the past 34 years.
At Roadhaven, I joined Silversmith and became a lifelong pool Bobber
My husband, Roger and I call Sherwood Park, Alberta home. We have two sons, Scott and Jess and two beautiful granddaughters, India and Margot. I enjoy technology and some call me a “techie gadget queen”. I have worked in various roles, including Strathcona County, where I obtained my Local Authority Administration Certificate from University of Alberta, taking courses like Local Government Finance, Municipal Law, Organizational Behaviour and Leadership. In October 2009, I retired from TELUS Communications, one of Canada’s Big 3 telecommunications providers. I managed several Billing, Sales and Support teams, including Large Market and Data teams, for the Government of Canada, Government of Alberta and City of Edmonton. Roger and I then traveled in our motorhome for a couple of years before renting for two years in Roadhaven and purchasing our property on Seminole just over seven years ago.
At Roadhaven, I joined Silversmith and became a lifelong pool Bobber – or as some people call us, the “Talking Hats”. I also volunteered e-mailing Clubs and Committee Announcements and uploading other documents to our previous Roadhaven website. I was also the Secretary for the Rec Council Executive, volunteered in Audio Visual and created and ran PowerPoints for the Roadhaven Church, as well as some presentations for Roadhaven residents. I am a Par-Tee Girl golfer and was their tournament co-ordinator the last couple of years. Since being elected to the HOA board I volunteered to be the Board Secretary. This season, I am also the Board Liaison to Audio Visual, Pool and Patio Improvement Committee and the Communications and Website Committee. Like so many other places, Roadhaven Resort’s way of life has been negatively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. However, we will work through this together– and I have my fingers crossed that the coming year will be less stressful for everyone. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to serve on your Board.
Barb and I have been owners for six years.
I have been involved with the Planning Committee for three years and the Rules and Regulations Committee for one year. I have a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering. In my spare time I enjoy golfing and building furniture. I have three daughters which gave rise to my present haircut!
This is my second term as a Roadhaven Board member. I was the Vice President last year and I am now the Treasurer.
I just ended a four year term as a Board member in our community in Manitoba where I was President for the last two years. My background is in operations of a major electric utility in Alberta and Yukon.
My wife and I have been 6 month snow birds in Apache Junction for 14 years, moving to Roadhaven in 2014.
We are second-generation owners & have been coming to roadhaven for more than 12 years.
My husband Bud and I have been coming to Roadhaven for over a dozen years as my folks, Jan and Cliff McCabe, were owners here. Once my Dad passed and my Mom’s health declined, we bought their park model on Seminole in 2018 as we saw how much they enjoyed the Roadhaven lifestyle.
I retired in 2018 and I have been married to Bud for 46 years and we have one married daughter. We have a home in Eagan, MN, and drive to Apache Junction each November and stay until April.
As far as my current activities at Roadhaven, I am Secretary for the Rec Council, I will be the President of Art Club next season, I am the captain of our Bocce Ball team, belong to the computer club and I golf.
As far as my work experience, I was in the Workers Compensation field. The last 26 years I worked for Sedgwick Claims Management Services which is a Third-Party Administrator for large self-insured companies. I was licensed in 8 states and was required to follow the rules and regulations of each state.
I was responsible for large sums of money, following strict state statutes, and compliance with specific client instructions. I interacted closely with injured workers, employers, attorneys and managed up to 12 claim examiners. I was required to pass ethics training every 2 years and had quarterly legal training.
I feel we all worked hard to finally retire and we want Roadhaven to be a very pleasant and attractive community. Like you, I want to preserve the value of our homes, have enjoyable activities, and be good neighbors.
We bought a place 8 days later and just love Roadhaven and the area.
My wife, Carol and I call Claresholm Alberta home. I have twin sons Shaun and Jeremy. Carol also has two boys Jason and Dylan. Carol has five Grandchildren and I just had my first granddaughter Oct 20. Carol and I came to Roadhaven in 2017 just to check it out to see if we liked the lifestyle. We bought a place 8 days later and just love Roadhaven and the area. I was born in Toronto Ontario and moved to Alberta in 1978 and never looked back. I have worked on oil rigs, Operated Heavy oil plants, and was lead Tech in a Kraft Pulp mill. I went on to help design, construct, commission, and operate several more Heavy oil plants called SAGD Facilities. During my career I obtained a First Class Power Engineering Certification which I still hold today. I have created several Training Systems, was involved with Document Control, Lead many Troubleshooting teams. I pride myself in my technical knowledge, always wanting to know how things work. Due to the downturn in the Alberta Oil Industry I was forced into retirement in 2018, best thing that could have happened.
My hobbies include Golfing (of course) Fly fishing, hiking, woodworking, model building and Rocketry. Several folks in the park call me rocket man. I have over 20 flyable rockets in our home here and go launching every month out near Quartzite. I was a volunteer firefighter for 10 years and a little league umpire for five. I was also the Race Capitan for 10 years for the Drag Racing Club in Peace River Alberta. Back in Claresholm Alberta I spend all my Saturdays in the Nanton Aircraft Museum helping to restore a 1947 De Havilland Mosquito Aircraft. It was the fastest plane in the second world war and made out of wood. Incredible machine. Also back in Claresholm I have a 1968 Plymouth Satellite which I completely restored myself. We try to get out and cruise as much as we can. Carol and I plan on being in Roadhaven as long as possible. We love the people and have made so many friends. I joined the Board with the intent of improving communication between the Board, management and the residents. I strive to help in making Roadhaven one of the best Resorts in the Valley.
