Bobby M. Pettyjohn was a man of prayer who spent his life witnessing to others about Jesus. When he passed away, his family wanted to honor his memory with a gift to Gardner-Webb, the University that helped Pettyjohn earn a college degree and the place where he met Carolyn, his wife of 55 years. “The things we learned there he used all his life,” shared Mrs. Pettyjohn, who lives in Camden, S.C. “He was a successful but humble person. I felt extremely blessed to be his wife.”
