The Lemieuxs found their Big South Fork Airpark home while browsing the internet for airparks in Florida. Ken and Dayna say that 346 Red Oak Drive just “popped up on our computer”. It’s a good thing, though, because they both agree that they can’t imagine living anywhere else.
Ken is a captain for NetJets, the first private business jet charter and aircraft management company in the world, and has been with the company for 22 years. He flies on the Latitude and really enjoys his job. Dayna is an Ohio native who met Ken in Columbus, Ohio while he was training for NetJets. They married 2 years later and moved to Somerset, NJ. The couple will celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary this coming week! Be sure to wish them a very happy anniversary if you see them around the airpark.
Though they found Big South Fork Airpark by chance, The Lemieuxs immensely enjoy the neighborhood camaraderie and how peaceful and safe they feel here.
“We love our neighbors at Big South Fork Airpark. We gather often and have a lot of fun together. We go out to eat and have get-togethers at the Welcome Center.”
Ken and Dayna attend Big South Fork Airpark’s community events and love being a part of the BSFA community.
Dayna is a published author of a children’s book called ‘How To Shake A Buckeye Tree’, a heartwarming story about the never-ending love a grandparent shows to their grandchildren. This is fitting because the Lemieuxs have a daughter who lives in Toledo, OH, and two granddaughters ages six and three.
The book is a true story about a little girl and her great-grandmother. Dayna wrote the book about Gran, a woman who had lost her daughter, and Alivia, Gran’s great-granddaughter. The Lemieuxs met Gran and Alivia during a difficult time in their lives. Dayna and Ken had moved back to Ohio to care for Dayna’s dad following the loss of her mother. At the time, Alivia was a very young girl who taught Dayna all about the Buckeye tree. They are still close all these years later. Dayna says she is very proud of the project, which took her two years to complete. You can find the publication here.
