Comments:

B.S. General Engineering, U. of IL-Urbana, 1965. Saved in 1966 and called by God into the gospel ministry the following year. Met my lovely wife in San Francisco during theological studies.

Married Lucy Perea in Macao in 1971 and spent the year in Hongkong working in a Christian drug addict center. God willing, looking forward to Golden Wedding Anniversary in 2021.

M.Div. in 1973, Grace Theological Seminary. Various engineering and plant management jobs and three pastorates in Ohio. Moved from OH to CA in 1988.

Pastor of Bethany Baptist Church of Stockton for fifteen plus years. Four older children married with seventeen grandchildren. Lucy and I celebrated our 46th wedding anniversary June 13.

School Story:

The class of 1959 studied in the old condemned school our freshman year. I was enamored with my older brother Don's stories of classes fighting over painting their numerals on the big rock in front of the old school. Do you remember the rock?

As our graduation was approaching, I told that exciting story to the guys in our senior class skit, and we thought we should add that bit of character to our new school. Under cover of darkness, we loaded the biggest rock we could handle from the strip mines into a pick-up truck, painted "1959" on it and drove onto the school lawn, dumped the rock and sped off.

The administration must not have agreed that this was the best way to add character to KHS, because to our great disappointment, there was not even a sign of our rock the next school day.

I totally enjoyed my KHS experience, love you all and hope God's richest blessings for you in Christ Jesus. Would love to see you all.

Your friend, John
