Richard VanScoyoc was a beloved member of our church family who lived to be over 100 years old. His was also a teacher, a veteran, and a historian. His work had a huge positive influence on many lives. In this article from our church newsletter, he writes with a dash of humor and a lot of heart. His testimony and his stories are particularly timely as we face our current pandemic.
