Truman was born in Bancroft and moved to New Liskeard as a child, where he finished his
schooling, and worked for Ministry of Transportation until his retirement in 1979.
Truman was a man of deep faith, who believed in living his Christianity and sharing it with
others. He was a long time member and supporter of First Baptist Church, New Liskeard.
He believed in helping others, in particular the less fortunate, and over the years sponsored
several third world and disadvantaged children through Christian Children’s Fund. He was a
supporter and follower of various Christian organizations.
On his death he provided in his will for bequests to First Baptist Church, New Liskeard,
Christian Children’s Fund, Canadian Bible Society, Back to the Bible and Billy Graham
Christian Children’s Fund said: “his gift will assist us in the work we do in providing a better life
for deprived and vulnerable children.”
Canadian Bible Society said: “His blessing us with yet another generous gift will allow us to
bring the life changing Word of God to many more indeed.”
Rev Bob McCarty Of First Baptist Church, New Liskeard, said: “His gift is a reflection of his
genuine faith in God and care for his community. It will help to enable the continued ministry of
sharing God’s generous love for us which was such a pivotal element in his own life.”
Truman not only helped each of these organizations in their work, but his estate received a
significant tax deduction because of these charitable donations.
