Kendall Docter Has Been ‘Caught in the Act’ of Doing Good
It's almost like a song parody. We didn't have the chance to ask Kendall Docter if he's "Brother Docter" or "Pastor Docter" or even "Reverend Docter", but he's certainly one of those guys we should all aspire to be.
Kendall is this week's Kiss Country Caught in the Act Award recipient and on the Thursday before Father's Day, the letter we received from his wife Karrie, made it easy to see he was a perfect fit for this auspicious occasion.
Just see what Karrie wrote:
Kendall and I have been married almost 37 years and I have never known him to use the word no much. He served his country in the Air Force for 20 years. We've always gone to church and he's helped so many people who were among our church family and been on many mission trips to Mexico or hurricane or tornado ravaged communities. If he sees someone with a flat along the interstate, he always stops to help. Now he's out of the Air Force, I won't say retired because he doesn't know what that word means. He currently flies a plane for two businesses here in town and serves Barksdale United Methodist Church as their pastor. Whether it's flying his bosses to where ever they need to be, sometimes on a moment's notice or making hospital visits for emergencies or for those recovering or in rehab, he never says "No, I can't come." Then of course, we have 3 grown children and so far six grandkids with the oldest one being 7. He has been a great hands on dad and and grandpa. He wears his "Grandpa...the man, the myth, the legend" shirt proudly.It's been really special to see him get to baptize his grandchild or be part of a baby dedication. None of our three children wanted him to marry them even though he did have a part in our oldest son's wedding. They all three said, "I just want him to be my dad that day." I have marveled over the years how he never runs out of energy, but there's never a day that he doesn't live to serve others be it family, friends, his church, a boss, or someone along side the road, or even trying to help me grade papers in the evenings; so sometimes it's from sun up to sun down. He's the best!
Kendall Docter, thank you for being one of the "good guys" and a big reason why this is the greatest place in America to live!
And because you've been "Caught in the Act" the gang at Silver Star Smokehouse have a $100 Gift Certificate for you and the family to come have dinner on them!
Take a listen to the phone call we made to Kendall to let him know that he was this week's Caught In The Act Award recipient.
