Arkansas has been my home since 1962, and Betty was born here. Betty and I are graduates of Vilonia High School and have been married since 1970. I have a degree in Chemistry from the University of Central Arkansas and work as a Toxicologist for the Arkansas State Crime Lab. Betty works as a land title examiner for a title insurance company. My family and I worked as missionaries in Australia from '81-'89. Our two daughters are married and live in Australia with their husbands and our 6 grandkids. I have served as an elder for Robinson and Center since 1994. I always tell people that God puts people where He wants them. I believe that that is why we are here.
