From the Lone Star State - Fred L. Funk

Hi ya'll,Today we would like to introduce the author of our BROWSE for BOOKS Featured Book The Throwaway Son,  Fred L. Funk.

Fred was born February 1. 1942 to Joe and Vernice Funk of Denton, Texas.  The place of his birth, the old Denton Hospital on South Locust Street still stands. He grew up in Denton and Arygle, Texas.  His school years were spent at Texas State College for Women (now TWU) Demonstration School, Denton Jr. High on Denton Street, and he graduated from Denton High School in 1960.  On August 24, 1960 he and Dana tied the knot at Cole Chapel, First Methodist Church, Denton, Texas.  At that time their lifelong adventure began and 55 years later it continues.  They have three children, two girls and one boy, they are blessed with eight grandchildren, and one great-grandson.  He and Dana both attended North Texas State College (now UNT).  After two semesters at NTSC they transferred to East Texas State College so that Fred could pursue a pre-theology degree with a minor in psychology.   Fred later changed his educational and career path to accounting and finance.  He worked for the largest retail home furnishings company in the South for thirty-five years. With their move to East Texas the adventure became more exciting as is chronicled in his books, MINISTRY AND MOONSHINE and MOONSHINER’S REVENGE.

Check out his work on the BROWSE for BOOKS page. That's all for later...Chris (RC).
