Retired from active ministry as Senior Pastor of several large-membership churches, including tern as ministry supervisor for 54 pastors as District Superintendent in Springfield, IL.
In retirement, I serve as chaplain for the Galesburg Fire Department (previous service as volunteer/paid on call firefighter/EMT.
In 2014 returned to first love: playing bassoon. Participated in bassoon studio at Western Illinois University, where I took private lessons prior to Covid. Play in a number of community groups, including the Monmouth Community Orchestra and the Knox College Chamber Winds. Have also enjoyed playing in the pit orchestra for “A Christmas Story: the Musical.”
Are you planning to attend our 50th reunion in person?
