Yes! Attending Reunion

After graduation from Colonel White, I attended Nyack College followed by a year at Jaffray School of Missions. Met Judy at Nyack and married in 1964.

After three years as pastor in Troy, PA, we, with our adopted 2 year old daughter went to the Philippine Islands where we taught in a Bible Institute and worked with Christian and Missionary Alliance Churches. We adopted our son Don during our first furlough in 1973, and returned to the Philippines for two more four-year terms.

In 1983 I studied for a Master's degree in communication at Wheaton Graduate School, then taught three years at Toccoa Falls College in Toccoa, Georgia. Hoping to return to the Philippines, I resigned from Toccoa. Then we determined we could not return overseas.

In 1987 we came to Indiana where I have pastored in two churches and also did a few years as a nursing home administrator. In September, 2010, I retired. We hope to soon move to Indianapolis to be nearer our children and grandchildren.

Happy Birthday Betsy. If you are like me, you may not read this for many moons, but I do remember you from CWHS days. Drove by the site a few months ago only to see that none of the buildings are still standing! My grade school (Charles Loos) is also a grassy lot, my church is changed, and my neighborhood is changed, so Dayton hardly seems like home any more. Interesting you mom was at Friendship. My mother lived there many years before her death. Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday!
