E. Bruce Preece (1974-1977) Following my release as mission president of the Canada Vancouver Mission in July 1977, I moved with my family to Vancouver, Washington where I coordinated Seminaries in southwestern Washington and northwestern Oregon, and taught at the Institute of Religion in Portland, Oregon and Clark College in Vancouver. In 1994, I retired from CES after 35 years and for the past five years have served as a Bishop in the Vancouver Stake. In January of 1998, my wife, Nancy, and I plan to serve another mission together, but at this time do not know where.(Prsident and Sister Preece has been called to server in Nauvoo)

As you missionaries might expect, I have continued my interest in hunting and fishing, adding to my collection of stories as I enjoy what outdoor humorist Pat McMannus describes as "fine and pleasant misery." I also love to garden and putter around our ranch style home. Soon after retiring in 1994, I also began writing my personal history. Nancy has, among a variety of church callings, served as a ward Primary president and Stake Relief Society president. She manages to keep busy with volunteer literacy tutoring and DUP (Daughters of the Utah Pioneers.) We both love to travel and have been back to Canada several times. In 1978 we joined a never-to-be-forgotten CES sponsored three week tour of the Holy Land including side trips to Italy, Greece, and Jordan.

Our "mission home transfer" daughter Sara, now twenty-one, recently left home to live and work in Portland, Oregon leaving us empty nested. I'll give a brief rundown on our other children, all married with children of their own. Catherine, and husband Rick Rhodes, make their home in Los Angeles where they own and publish a magazine. They have three blonde headed kids, Ricky 5, Elizabeth 3 and a two year old Hannah Jo. Stephen, after earning his PhD in International Business from the University of Ohio, teaches at a university near Toronto, Canada. He and Martina have two children, a boy Jasper, age eight and a girl, Erika 4. Stewart and his wife Tami recently moved into a new home in Everett, Washington. (near Seattle) where he is employed by Toshiba. Chasing after robust Riley, age 3, a future running back for the Dallas Cowboys, and their new arrival Logan, keeps them busy.

Personal regards to all our Mountain Top Missionaries and your families!

(November 4, 1997) E. Bruce Preece
