The sanctuary cross was hung over the altar in 1974. It was created by Mr. Keyser of the R.I. T. faculty as a memorial gift in honor of Robert Funk, who died in Vietnam in 1969. Page seven of our church annual report of 1973 includes this statement by John Turner, memorial fund chairman. "The only dispersement during the year was for the cross over the altar in memory of Sgt. Robert Funk."
