Larry retired after 34 years in the military and federal civil service, with a little private sector work thrown in at the end. Scarlett is a retired registered nurse (from the old school where nurses actually did patient care , not computers). They have one son, Patrick, and a daughter-in-law, Jennifer, who are posted in Nairobi, Kenya, where Patrick is a foreign service officer for USAID. You might surmise that they are a family of public service. Larry says, "We try to live by Luke 12:48: "From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked." Adds Scarlett, "We are fortunate to live in a lovely community with all we need. Though we have no family nearby, we have many friends in this area and two near-perfect dogs. In addition to our outreach with Creekside Cares and the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle, we also serve through our church, Church of the Nativity. We enjoy serving the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle by packing and delivering food to Windsor Springs, a senior housing facility." Scarlett and Larry just celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary.
Please consider donating to Inter-Faith Food Shuttle by leaving nonperishable items on their porch (1016 Cadence Lane) or by making a monetary gift (checks payable to Inter-Faith Food Shuttle). There is currently a matching program for monetary donations through the remainder of 2020. Food insecurity is a serious concern during the pandemic. All donations are appreciated and needed.
Creekside is very lucky to have Scarlett and Larry in our neighborhood. They are serving our community with heart.
