A Tribute to R. J.

Ralph (R.J.) Osborn passed away July 10.  He was a longtime member (since 1932) and friend of First Christian Church, and over his nearly nine decades of membership served as Deacon, Elder, Trustee, Treasurer, and Chairman of the Board.  During the last 2 years, he photographed current members, friends and staff for inclusion in the 2020 FCC Church Directory.  For many years, he was the “go-to” guy when it came to purchasing and maintaining the computers and internet/telephone service for the church.  We will miss him greatly, and our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
