    It didn’t take long to become good friends with Bev Pankey. He was such a friendly and open person with such a big heart where nonprofits were concerned. I was fortunate enough to have meet Bev as he came on board at Methodist University (then Methodist College) as the Vice President for Advancement. He came without Dianne in those first few months of employment. Missing Dianne and his family it took only one quick invitation for Bev to come to dinner with my family and another new Methodist employee. From there Bev become a regular visitor and my family and I truly enjoyed our time together. When Dianne arrived in Fayetteville we were quickly introduced and our dinners together as two families became regular events. Over the years my family and I have often spoken of the fun we had and the shared times wishing there had been more time together, but alas Michigan called and Bev and Dianne moved back north. We know that those in close contact will miss this dear fellow and all the joy and laughter that he was prone to bring to a room. My family and I send our heartfelt sympathy and prayers at this time of loss.
