I was born in 1949 in Edmond, Oklahoma. I became a Christian at the age of 7. I graduated from Edmond High School in 1968, and from Central State University in 1972, with a degree in commercial art. I have been painting since I was 9 years old.
I married Jo Ann May, August 30, 1969. We have 3 children
Stephanie, Robert, and Lyndsey; and 7 grandchildren.
After college I worked in retail, sign design, and advertising, before surrendering to Christian ministry and moving to Fort Worth to attend seminary. I served as part time Minister of Education in 2 churches and as Pastor of Rockett Baptist Church. I also received a teacher certification in secondary math from Baylor University in 1989. I taught math in public schools for 22 years.
I enjoy baseball, golf, fishing, and art. I continue to teach Sunday
school, and work at my church.
I now consider myself retired, although I am busier than ever and I am looking forward to many fun filled years with my wife, family, and hobbies.
