A joyful married life
Larissa became the family's primary breadwinner when she subsequently opened her own successful business, Central California Research Laboratories (CCRL), where she specialized in biochemistry for the agricultural industry. As Larissa worked longer hours getting her business up and runningneighbors said she routinely left the house at 6:30 a.m. and wouldn't return until 7:30 p.m.Tim happily stepped into the "Mr. Mom" role. It would fall to him to take the children to doctor's appointments, music lessons, and football games.
Larissa's hard work paid off, and in 2000, the couple bought a pricy home in nearby Clovis. Records show Larissa earned $160,000 in 2001, while Tim made $77,290 as an administrator at St. Agnes Medical Center. The family attended Hope Lutheran Church in Fresno and Tim was a member of the Clovis Masonic Lodge.
