Parker County Today April 2018 - Page 30

BC: Several things: watch mind- less TV shows; read (articles, books and the Bible); play FreeCell; exer- cise; spend time with my family; and spend time with our life group friends. PCT: What is something people don’t know about you? BC: I attended the New York City World’s Fair in 1964 and saw Michelangelo’s “Pieta”. PCT: What would you most like to be remembered for? BC: First, that I acted justly, loved mercy and walked humbly with my Lord. Second, that I loved nothing more than being a husband and a daddy. Third, that I loved my coun- try. PCT: If you could have lunch with any one, either living or dead from history, who would it be? BC: Any one of our Founding Fathers, Abraham Lincoln or Winston Churchill. 28 PCT: If you had to do another job than what you’re doing, what would you do? BC: Well that’s a tough one because I have never wanted to be anything other than an attorney. I’ve always wanted to be a judge, especially a Supreme Court justice, but that is still a lawyer. I love history so how about a history professor? PCT: What is your impact to Parker County? BC: I have always tried to be actively involved in my community through my involvement in church and church outreach ministries; minister- ing with individuals and couples who have lost a child, especially through suicide because my wife and I have walked that painful path; supporting various service ministries like Habitat for Humanity and Center of Hope; serving in marriage ministry at New River Fellowship; serving on a WISD Bond Committee for Construction of a new high school; and making my legal services available at very affordable prices through part-time private practice ( I am employed full- time with the federal government) But basically, I strive to be a man of integrity and honesty, a good citizen, friend and neighbor. PCT: What is your definition of the best day ever? BC: Any day I get to hang out with and enjoy the company of good friends and my family. PCT: What’s the best advice you would give? BC: Always tell the truth. Be yourself. And, so long as there is breath in your lungs, there is hope. So don’t give up! PCT: What is the most interesting thing you have ever done in your life? BC: After the Oklahoma City bomb- ing in 1995, I volunteered as a HUD employee with one other attorney to go to OKC and assist the survivors and the families of those employees who were killed with their recov- ery and the restoration of the HUD
