RIP Herman Stuempfle

I just learned of the passing (in March) of the Rev. Dr. Herman G. Stuempfle, Jr., former president of the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg, my alma mater. Notable fact: when my wife was in the hospital for several days after the emergency C-section of our son (who would be in the hospital for two months), he was the only ordained member of the seminary community who visited her (so did several secretaries and the bookstore manager).
