It was my privilege to know and serve with Champ on the board of Children of Abraham. He was a marvelous generous man. He helped my group, Anidaso Health, with medical supplies for our medical missions to Ghana, as well as insight and moral support. He gave from the heart. He was a driving force in aid shipments to many countries across the globe. I miss him.

Betty and family, Champ was such a huge influence on my life and so many others throughout NW Indiana. I was privileged to serve with him on the Children of Abraham board and through that wonderful organization saw the power of cooperation. May you find peace during this time of loss.
