Geneva resident Roger Godskesen was at the Geneva City Council meeting when he answered questions for the Kane County Chronicle's Brenda Schory.
Schory: Where did you grow up?
Godskesen: Oak Lawn
Schory: Who would play you in the movie of your life?
Godskesen: Al Pacino or Tony Randall
Schory: First job?
Godskesen: Delivering food to patients at Christ Hospital
Schory: As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Godskesen: Famous. I guess being city clerk qualifies.
Schory: Book or movie you would recommend?
Godskesen: “The Terror” by Dan Simmons.
Schory: Favorite charity?
Godskesen: Northern Illinois Food Bank in Geneva. I’ve been volunteering there for six years.
Schory: Favorite ice cream flavor?
Schory: Favorite local restaurant?
Godskesen: Munchie P’s in Geneva
Schory: What is an interesting fact about yourself?
Godskesen: One of my dreams as a kid was to skydive. My dad would not let me until I was 21. After I got out of the Army, I made five jumps. I got tangled in the parachute and I interpreted it as a sign not to skydive any more.
