On Wednesday, December 2, Reverend Harold Watkins passed away from cancer. Hal, as he liked to be called, was a retired Disciples minister, President Emeritus of the Disciples Church Extension Fund, and former member of the Gemmer Family Foundation and its finance committee. You can see him in the photograph above from 2013, on the right side in the front row. Calling will be on Tuesday, December 15 from 4:00-8:00 p.m. at Geist Christian Church, Mud Creek Campus at 8550 Mud Creek Rd, Indianapolis. A memorial service will be held the following day, Wednesday, December 16 at 11:00 a.m. in the same location. Messages of care may be sent to Hal's wife, Evelyn, and adult children, Nancy and Mark of Indianapolis. The Foundation's thoughts are with the Watkins family.
