St. Charles resident Ron Senechalle, 51, was at the Great Western Trail Horlock Hill Prairie in St. Charles when he answered 10 questions for the Kane County Chronicle’s Brenda Schory.  

Where did you grow up? St. Charles. I was born at Delnor Hospital.

Pets? A golden retriever named Parker and a Boston terrier named Nellie. But we foster goldens for As Good as Gold, a golden rescue. Parker is maybe our 20th golden that we fostered, and he was too good to let go so we kept him.

Who would play you in the movie of your life? Robert Redford. And he’s a skier. I love to ski.

First job? I cut lawns.

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? I wanted to be a professional hockey player. I became a lawyer – which is close. I practice commercial real estate and environmental law.

A book you’d recommend? Anything by Ian Frazier. 

Favorite charity? We are involved with the Lost Boys Rebuilding Southern Sudan. We hosted a Lost Boy from South Sudan for a year, James Ajuong.

What game show would you appear on? I’m not a fan.

Favorite local restaurant? Francesca’s by the River in St. Charles. 

What is an interesting factoid about yourself? We have taken in 20 dogs and one Lost Boy from Sudan.
