Andy Hunter feels that being a Commissioner for United General District 304 is a great way to give back to the community, especially because healthcare in our community has been a big part of his family. Both his father Joe, and uncle Bob, were physicians in Sedro-Woolley and practiced at United General for many years.
Andy and his wife Marianne have 3 children and one grandchild. He likes to spend time with his family, and also enjoys golfing, hunting, going to church and watching college and high school football and basketball.
Through her extensive volunteer involvement and professional career in Skagit County, Jeri Kaufman has had the opportunity to connect with the community served by United General. She joined the Board in April 2012 and her most rewarding moment thus far happened when she had the opportunity to accept five awards for United General at the Washington State Hospital Association annual meeting.
Jeri and her husband Jerry love to golf, garden and dance in their free time. And, if you look closely at the clowns dancing in the street at your next parade, you will see that their other pastime is entertaining!
Having spent a good part of his professional life in the health care environment, Gary Kent finds great satisfaction in being a part of United General District’s leadership.
Gary can often be found either at a sporting event or playing music with his friends. His family enjoys these pastimes together, in addition to antiquing and traveling around the United States. He finds beauty in every corner of the country and especially enjoys the Southwest, California, and Montana.
United General has been a part of Churck Ruhl’s life as long as he can remember. His mother, Ruth Ruhl, was the surgery supervisor at the hospital for more than 20 years. He feels committed to maintaining the high level of service to our community that the hospital district is known for.
Chuck is retired as the Funeral Director and Co-Owner of Lemley Chapel in Sedro-Woolley. He and his wife, Toni, enjoy traveling together and searching for the perfect place to fly fish.
Bob is a retired pharmacist with a number of hobbies, including collecting vintage cars and motorcycles, traveling, and spending time with his family and friends. He enjoys competitions of many kinds, having raced hydroplanes for many years.
