Sad news.

# / @ 08:45pm / 7 comments

Dearest friends and family,

It is with great sadness that I write at this time to let you know that dad went home to be with the Lord on Tuesday. He was hiking the Appalachian Trail, one of his favorite hobbies, when he had a heart attack. We are all completely shocked & saddened; it’s really beyond my ability to express.  We are comforted knowing that he did not suffer & that as a firm believer in Jesus Christ, he is in Heaven now. As I’m sure you can imagine, we already miss him terribly and we always will until re-united in heaven.

Dad taught us all so much about how to live and love -- how to give 110% in all situations. He taught us to hold fast to our convictions & to persevere even when situations looked grim. He was a man of honor & integrity; he truly strived to emulate Christ with his words and actions.

For those of you who are interested, the services will take place this Friday, August 11th at Faith Evangelical Free Church in Allentown, PA:

Faith Evangelical Free Church
6528 Hamilton Blvd.
Allentown, PA 18106

The viewing will begin at 9:30 am, and the memorial service will begin at 11:00.  From there we will proceed to the Grandview Cemetery, where dad will be laid to rest. A reception will follow, back at the church.  All are welcome to attend.

In lieu of flowers, please send any donations to the aforementioned church address.  Checks can be made out to the “Faith Evangelical Free Building Fund,” a project which dad was intimately involved with.  Should you wish to contact anyone in the family directly, please feel free to call us at (610) 366-7323.

We’ve been so blessed by the love that you’ve all shown us. Thank you all for your kindness & your continued prayers at this very difficult time.

With love,
