Televangelist
    (July 19, 1921-December 15, 2013)
    Born in Boulder, Colorado
    Founder and president of Family Stations, Inc.
    Preached the Bible as sole and authoritative word of God on radio and TV stations, and his website
    Published the books 'We are Almost There!' and 'To God be the Glory'
    Predicted the Rapture would occur on May 21, 2011 and the end of the world would occur on October 21, 2011
    His name could be interpreted as singing the praises of outdoor life.
    His middle name was Egbert.
    He shielded his personal life from everybody, including the names of his wife and seven kids.
    His theological doctrine became so outlandish he separated himself from the Christian Reformed Church in 1988.
    He taught that everybody is predestined to either be saved or not, that no amount of prayer or good deeds will save one's soul, and that all churches are for morons.
    He ran Family Stations, Inc. like a dictatorship - anyone who remotely questioned him about anything was fired on the spot.
    He predicted the Rapture eight previous times, and each time Jesus Christ was a no-show.
    He told his followers that since the end of the world was soon at hand, they should rack up debt and spend beyond their means because they wouldn't have to pay anything back.
    He was a pathological, 'date-setting' liar, and a certifiable whack job.
    He was once again left wondering why his prediction of the Rapture did not come true (May 21, 2011).
    He attended the University of California, Berkeley and earned a B.S. degree in Civil Engineering in 1942.
    Unlike many other snake oil hucksters passing themselves off as televangelists, he doesn't beg for money, yet became a self-made millionaire.
    He believed in annihilationism, where sinners and those not chosen by God are not bound for Hell to be tormented forever in a lake of fire, but simply destroyed (how nice).
