I was born in Kentucky, and raised all my life in the Church of Christ. I have been married to Jackie for over 53 years, and we have been blessed with three children, six grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren. I spent 38 years in the Air Force (active and reserve duty) along with over 41 years in Civil Service. Jackie and I were charter members of the Summerville congregation 50 years ago, and I served as a deacon from 1980 until I was installed as an elder in June of 2018
I am blessed to be married to my high school sweetheart, Debbi, who I met at church. We have lived in many locations and have church family across the globe. My background is in Chemical Engineering, working mostly in the paper industry. Currently I operate a small business providing mortgage protection coverage to clients. We have two grown children and four grandchildren. I was installed as an elder in March of 2015
My wife, Ann, grew up in the Essex Village Church of Christ, and I was baptized there just three weeks prior to our wedding in 1990. After college and graduate school, we came home to Charleston and pursued careers in education. I spent 20 years in the classroom as a history teacher and track coach before becoming Athletic Director at Porter-Gaud School in 2014. We began to work and worship at Summerville in 2001. Ann and I are both passionate about the work at Palmetto Bible Camp and the Southeastern Children's Home, where I serve as a board member. We have three grown children and two grandchildren. I was installed as an elder in June of 2018.
