Harry L. Hyde
Harry lived in Lima, Ohio for the first 18 years of his early life then moved to Fort Wayne to attend college and never left. He married Lynnette after a two year courtship by mail and one month after she returned from a two year mission stint. It’s true they knew each other longer than two years but nonetheless it was an inexpensive courtship! They have four grown sons and 10 grandchildren.
Harry was a juvenile probation officer after college. Then he became involved in what he never anticipated earlier in life: God’s call to be a pastor, missionary and administrator. He loves traveling, watching the grandchildren play and squeal, and reading his Bible (he owns over 30 different kinds of Bibles).
Brookside has been Harry’s home base for over 40 years. Whether living in Chicago, Adrian, Michigan, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Cincinnati or Venezuela Brookside has been a rock of stability through life’s journey.
