    Was it Nick Karamalis? He made dumb jokes. I remember one time he burped from the platform...and asked what color was that...and said burple!

    He tried to make my dad step down from his position because I was in college. Dad refused and stood his ground. Karamalis dropped it.

    coffeblack - yup - that's the one! my father was an elder in those years and i semi-recall some sort of a double-cross going on he was involved in.....or was that de cinti.....

    I believe he was removed... let go with no job and no prospect for an income of any kind.

    Rodrigues (pronounced Rodericks) and his wife Pat. He taught my pioneer school

    Terry Barnes - soft spoken, but a hard ass

    Bob Suiter (Suter?), very good guy and his wife too. Enjoyed their company. He told the brothers in my cong to appoint me as an elder.


    Sam Herd as DO

    Can't recall so many names

    The fact is, some of them were ok and others were just plain weird. I only truly dislike angelacos. He was not a nice man.

    minimus: Was that Terry Angelocas? I remember him from 60's or maybe 70's in Akron Ohio. If same, he was a big fat jerk (literally), always had to disrupt things when he came. Also remember Earl Singer and his wife because they had a young daughter, quite unusual.

    Would this post benefit if broken down to continents ? if possible ?


  • minimus

    Yup, the angel of death, that was him! I heard he was sickly and I wonder if they have retired him in some far away congregation. I don't miss the hatchet man.

    palmtree67/Albert Einstein/Mary: I had many of the ones mentioned out West in Alberta. There were only a very few really memorable ones that took an active interest among them the Fungs. Albert was genuinely committed.

    Amngst the worse was Krushnyski who was a letcherous bastard that had a fondness for catching a grope when "hugging' sisters. I remember how he hated getting his name mixed up with Mike Krushelnyski, the former Oilers hockey player. We would make a point of pissing him off by calling him that occasionally at elders meetings.

    The last one I had before my fade was Clarence Gilmar. This was a piece of work that had the lowest EQ of anyone I have met. He and his BIL elder spent more time eyeing the sisters at conventions than paying attention.
