Please join us in welcoming Kelly Blockhus to Alpine Communications as a
combination technician specializing in security systems. Kelly joined Alpine
in September and his duties include installing, servicing, and maintaining
phone, FusionTV, and internet services. As a Level 1 Certified Alarm
Technician, Kelly will also install and service PERS, intrusion detection and
surveillance systems for Alpine.
Kelly is a native of Clermont, Iowa and a graduate of Valley of Elgin. He
received a technical degree in HVAC from Northeast Iowa Community
College and an AAS in Computer Information Systems from Kaplan
University. Kelly previously owned Blockhus Plumbing and Heating, LLC in
Elkader and worked in the Des Moines metro area as an HVAC technician
and plumber before relocating his family back to Elgin.
Kelly and his wife, LeAnn, have four sons: Connor (age 12 and he is the
builder), Alexander (age 8 and he is the problem-solver), Eean (age 7 and
he is very inquisitive), and Colin (age 5 and he is mom’s helper). Outside of work, Kelly enjoys spending time with his wife and boys and he notes that movie nights with popcorn are a family favorite.
When asked about his experience at Alpine Communications so far, Kelly said, “It’s nice to be working on a team again. Everyone has been helpful in teaching me what I need to know to be able to do a quality job for our customers.”
