Return to Our Ministers

I was born June 28, 1945. I attended Ben Franklin High School after which I joined the Navy. I was in the Navy for 11 years, nine months. I married my childhood sweet heart while I was in the Navy. My family was heavy drinkers. I started drinking after my first tour of Viet Nam. My drinking cost me my wife and son.

My sister’s oldest son turned me on to free basing and it was downhill from there. I lost my home, my job and friends. This went on from 1985 until 1992. While homeless I met Jimmy. He showed me I was still loved and could be forgiven. I turned to the Lord and accepted Jesus as my Lord.
