About Tech 4 Life

Tech 4 Life Launched in June of 2004

We were in good company … Facebook started the same year and so did Gmail!

Tech 4 Life was born out of the strong desire to love our neighbors.   Technology is just the vehicle we have used to love all the folks in our community.

We believe in Country Doctor Service.   The model used so many years ago when taking care of your neighbor was of upmost importance.  We take care of you and, someday when we need help, you will take care of us.   Simple community theory, but it was a necessity back then and still is today.

We believe in Community.   It’s two words – Come, Unity.   Unity in the essentials of life.   In Non-Essentials, Liberty.  In all things Charity.   We believe our Communities of Cave Creek and Carefree can and (for the most part) do live this way.   We desire to lead this effort!

Honesty, Integrity and Service to others are the principle we live by.  You will see these words on our office walls.  You will see this in our work and our interactions with you.

We extend our best wishes to you and everyone in the communities we serve.   We aim to keep the bar of service high and fully relationship based.

Thank You For The Opportunity To Be Of Service!
