I began working with my father during the summers when I was 13 years old. Never knowing I was being taught and molded into a fourth generation stone mason, I continued to work with him until the summer of my senior year in high school when I got a job with my uncle who had been running the family business in Bowling Green. I really started to understand just how much the family business meant to me.

I take a lot of pride in my work and love what I do, and I feel that is evident in the quality of the work. It's a great feeling to drive down the road and see the work of four generations of stone masons.

Every job is different; every stone is unique in its own way. I've heard people say, "It's like working a big puzzle." A big puzzle that is never really complete in the eyes of a stone mason. Matt and I have had the pleasure of working for exceptional people, and it's a great feeling to be able to do something that people enjoy at their homes or businesses.

The work of Costello Stone is rare trade these days and it can be physically and mentally taxing at times. Nevertheless, there's nothing else I would rather do!



I've been with Costello Stone since I was 15 years old, working for my father Gary. This is the only job that I have had. Dad used to wake me up every morning of my summer breaks from school and take me to work with him.

I started out as a mudman, just like all my family before me. From there, I learned more of the family trade and worked my way to where I am now.

I never knew I would enjoy this job as much as I do. I learned to work hard and pay attention to what's important in succeeding in this line of work.

My father taught me what he knew and gave me the tools to succeed as a stone mason. I have great pride in my work and tremendous respect for what my family has accomplished in four generations of stone work!
