Rev Akers was my pastor at Hawley United Methodist Church in Hawley, Pa. I remember he was a lot of fun and I've always remembered him since I was a little boy singing in the choir at Church. Prayers go out to his wife and family...

We're so sorry to hear of Doug's passing, Marilyn. Nelson and Doug sang in Seminary Singers and graduated together from Wesley. So it's been a long time and we've lost touch. We vividly remember Doug's vividly head of red hair! And we're so glad he was known for making children laugh! There can be no better legacy. With love from the Repperts.
