Alumnus passes
Tom Rash passed January 20. Tom graduated from ABC in 1944.

After marrying Leota, they travelled to India where they worked alongside indigenous populations in church planting and leadership training for the churches. They returned to Canada in 1966.

ABC students of the late 1960’s remember him as a caring and passionate teacher. Following his tenure at ABC, Tom continued to teach at the Pastoral Institute in the area of counselling. He practiced as a counsellor for many years either formally, or as a volunteer, especially in a number of hospices in Calgary, until recently.

He is predeceased by Leota, and survived by brother Howard, and four children.
