Named as Volunteer Bookkeeper in 2024, John and his wife, Jan, have been members of Trinity since 2015.  They have a son, two daughters and 4 grandchildren. Born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, John served on the Milwaukee Police Department until his retirement in 2001.  After being full-time RVers for 11 years, they made the move to Virginia to be closer to their youngest daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter.   John feels privileged to have served the Lord in several capacities at Trinity Lutheran Church since he and Jan have been members.
