Both Walt and Bea were born and raised in the Pittsburgh area. Walt is from the North Side and Bea from the South Hills. They met, appropriately at Central Christian Church.

Together they attended Johnson Bible College, now Johnson University Tennessee, and Lincoln Christian College, now Lincoln Christian University.

Both Bea and Walt have hearts for worldwide foreign mission work. Walt is retired from American Airlines. Using his pass privileges, they have visited over 30 foreign mission fields in the past 35 years.
