Pastor Pendleton is a man of God. He is well known for his infectious smile and wave, always willing to help anyone. He tried to show love to everyone he met by asking you: "How's the family" and following up by saying, "Give them my love."

Pastor Pendleton loved music, whether listening to it on his many TVs or radios. Early on you might have heard him playing his guitar and banjo.
