My wife and I joined Erieside Church in 1980. Since then I have served as an Elder, Sunday school teacher and Wednesday night bible study leader. For the past 22 years I have been serving as Chairman of Missions Committee and led groups on short term missions trips on several occasions. I consider the Bible to be my manual for living life as God intended. The Lord took my wife Susan home in 1986. My son served in the Marines and the Gulf War, and presently is living in California. My daughter went home to be with her Savior in 2014.
