Vestry Nominees for 2023
Bob was born in Waukegan, Illinois on 8/4/37. He attended Northwestern University ’59 and received a BA in Psychology.
In 1960, he married Sydney Davis (a St Mary’s parishioner). They have two daughters and three grandchildren.
Bob worked at The Bryn Mawr Trust Company, Bryn Mawr, from 1960 until retiring in 2001. He was the CEO from 1/80 until retirement.
In the 70s, he was also Treasurer of St. Mary’s for several years.
He was Chairman of the Bryn Mawr Hospital Foundation, Chairman of the Main Line Chamber of Commerce, President of the Pennsylvania Bankers Association, board member of the American Bankers Association, Chairman of the Useppa Island Historical Association, a Regional Race Officer of U.S. Sailing, Vice President of The Merion Cricket Club, and Commodore of the Little Egg Harbor Yacht Club.
In 2005, He and Sydney made their residence in Florida, living on Useppa Island until this last spring. They sold their residence and returned to an apartment in Pembroke North full time and they save summers for Beach Haven, where they have a summer cottage.
Dave was raised Episcopalian with 2 grandfathers being Episcopal clergymen, one with a parish in Rosemont and one with a parish in West Philadelphia.
He attended Trinity College with his cousin Tim Lander and they graduated in 1975.
He married his wife, Debbie in 1978 and raised two daughters. He took his Biology degree and received a Masters in Clinical Microbiology from Thomas Jefferson University in 1985. He worked for 38 years in clinical Microbiology labs in the area, 33 of those years being at Jefferson.
Dave spent 20 years singing in the choir at Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church, while his two daughters took advantage of a wonderful youth program. Debbie was raised Presbyterian and enjoyed being back in a Presbyterian church. Dave always hoped his grandfathers forgave him.
He retired in 2018 and volunteers at Noah’s Ark and Bryn Mawr Hospital. He also teaches a Microbiology Lab at Montgomery County Community College two afternoons a week. He is fortunate to have four grandsons in the area.
He and Debbie joined St. Mary’s in 2018 and he thinks it’s wonderful being in this parish. He loves seeing his Aigeltinger cousins on a regular basis, and he really enjoys singing under Gordon’s direction in the choir.
Allyson Radford grew up attending St. Mary’s. Over the years, she has participated in nearly every committee, event, or program at St. Mary’s serving in nearly every role: from leader to follower to eager participant.
More recently she has focused on Buildings and Grounds, serving on the altar, and helping with youth programming. She is looking forward to continuing to support the Buildings & Grounds committee as a Vestry member, helping to navigate some of the big challenges and decisions we’ll face together in the coming years.
She has traveled on several mission trips: building houses in Peru, repairing homes in South Carolina, and will be traveling to Rwanda in March to help build a bridge in a rural community.
Allyson is a Construction Manager in the Capital Development Group at Philadelphia International Airport and manages the On Call Public Works program. She is proud to be a confirmation mentor to some, youth leader to many, and (fairy) godmother to her niece.
