Meet the Owners

Howdy, I am John Pantalone, the owner of Amber Oaks Ranch. I grew up in Georgetown, TX where I married my high school sweetheart Molly. We both went to Texas A&M University (class of '91) where I studied Civil Engineering and Molly studied Architecture, Anthropology, and then earned a teaching certificate. I was commissioned an Army Officer in 1992 and served 6 years on active duty. I currently work for a global company in the power generation business providing technical sales support for machinery repairs. We have 3 children who are out on their own now.
