Talmadge Eugene Lupo, 1933-1995

51_tel_class_portrait_01Remembering my father, Talmadge Eugene Lupo (13 April 1933 – 5 April 1995) on what would have been his 82nd birthday. He was born thirty years and one week before I was.

He graduated high school in Homerville, GA in 1951.

He was an active member of Park Street Methodist Church, where he served in every official capacity other than minister. People who knew him there always remarked on his knowledge of the Bible.
