John McFadden is an ordained minister of the United Church of Christ who served in parish ministry for 34 years, including 23 years as senior pastor of First Congregational United Church of Christ in Appleton. He recently retired as the first workplace chaplain for Goodwill Industries of North Central Wisconsin. The couple's book, "Aging Together: Dementia, Friendship, and Flourishing Communities," was published by Johns Hopkins University Press in 2011.
