    By God’s grace and plan I got to know BZ when his son Bruce (a.k.a. Max) and I were dorm mates at Concordia Ann Arbor and later roommates at Concordia Sr. College in Ft. Wayne. Because of his Board of Regents responsibilities at the Senior College, BZ visited the campus on numerous occasions. And that gave me the wonderful opportunity to get to know him on a personal basis. His concern and attitude always demonstrated one who knew the Lord Jesus and who desired to reflect His love and grace to everyone – his son’s roommate included. Whenever and whenever our paths crossed he expressed genuine interest in what God was trying to do through me and my life. What a fine Christian man, husband, father, grandfather, pastor, churchman, and witness he was! My heart rejoices that I was privileged to know him. What joy to know that for all who live and die in Christ, the best is yet to come!
