I grew up in Louisville KY where my father was a pastor. After high school I attended and graduated from Elmhurst College ( where preachers kids went cheap). I then spent four years at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, graduating in 1961. All senior med students were drafted and I spent three years in the navy with submarine squadron 16. I returned to The medical center here in Indianapolis completing a four-year residency in urology.
I spent the next 35+ years in practice in Fort Wayne. My first wife, JoAnn, developed lung cancer and I retired at age 64 to care for her. JoAnn died a year later. I decided not to go back to the practice and started doing mission work. In Fort Wayne at the free clinic, Mathew 25 and in Haiti.
After a year or so I had a very real “ message” that I should call Gayle Hitchcock. I had known Gayle’s first husband, Larry, very well. We were residents together at I.U. We were married 12 years ago and I became a member of E91. I serve on the boards of the E91st Christian Church Foundation, the Christian Holy Land Foundation, and The Jesus Inside Prison Ministry.
My life is truly one miracle and Godly intervention after another. As we say at P.I.P.M., “Praise Jesus.” Thank You!!
