Sometimes our dreams come true in our children’s lives. Tony Fightmaster and his three brothers attended Olivet Nazarene University, although their dad never got the opportunity to live that dream in his lifetime.
During a revival service in Dayton, Ohio, in the 1940s, Tony’s dad had a life-changing salvation experience. Stepping out in his new faith, he quit his job at National Cash Register and moved his family to Bourbonnais, Illinois, to prepare for ministry at Olivet. The day he was to register for classes, he received his draft notice and was sent to Europe just before World War II ended. Later, he did become a pastor and served churches in southern Ohio.
