Favorite Memory of High School: Going steady with Patsy 3 of the four years I was in high school.  Seeing my Dad get his high school diploma the same year I got mine. And of course, Graduation!

Proudest Moments of My Life: The day Patsy and I were married.  Seeing our first born son, Bryon, for the very first time and having the same feelings when I saw our second son, Tim.  Seeing both become Christians and join the church I was pastoring.  Seeing Tim graduate from the Naval Training center in Chicago and then watching him become a great husband and father.

Things I Would Like My Classmates to Know: I will always be grateful for the education I received at Lancaster High School. The Lord has blessed me with a great wife who supports me and my work.  He has given us two wonderful sons.  And He has allowed me to make meaningful friendships with people from different places in this country.  He has used me to bring comfort, hope and joy to many people throughout the years.  Of this, I am very thankful.
