I never planned my career. Henry Gold did.
He was my professor, my boss, my mentor, and friend. He was a dedicated churchman, deacon, husband, father, and grandfather. When I left his employ to take a dean’s position, he was as proud as was my own family. When I returned to Oklahoma a decade later to serve as OBU president, he was appointed as a Trustee and once again served as my boss. He was a gentleman, fisherman, well spoken, erudite, genteel, and kind—so very kind. He loved Jesus, became most animated when talking of the Lord, and today, Henry Gold met Him face to face.
The photo is from his last day of service as a Trustee of the OBU Board.
