Welcome New Residents Richard and Kathleen Truelove

by a Broadmead resident

Richard Truelove almost missed growing up in Baltimore, where he was born, for when his parents divorced, his mother took him and his siblings to Colorado. But she did not find adequate work there and returned to Baltimore by the time Richard was ready for high school.

Interested in engineering and science, he attended Baltimore Polytechnic Institute. He graduated from Loyola University of Baltimore, with a degree in civil engineering. At that time, he said, “twenty engineering job recruiters showed up at Loyola.” Richard went to work first for a private company and then for the U.S. Corps of Engineers, which provided training for the building of large developments. At the same time, he took graduate courses at Johns Hopkins University.

Welcome New Residents Mark & Jackie Stokes

by a Broadmead resident

Mark Stokes’ working career is divided into two overlapping parts: engineering and community service. Starting as an engineer at the C.J. Langenfelder Company after a four year stint in the U.S. Air Force, Mark became chief engineer and ultimately vice president. In these positions, he had primary responsibility for the construction planning of projects such as the approach to the Baltimore Harbor Tunnel and multilevel highways both in this area and later throughout the country. He retired in 1996, after 41 years with the company.

Even before retirement, Mark had started turning his energy and talents to community service. Volunteering at Genesis Jobs, a community organization serving inner city residents, Mark counseled people who had difficulty finding work and helped them make significant life changes. A couple of years later, he began working as well with the Assistance Center of Towson Churches, where he served as Food Committee chairman for the distribution of food in Baltimore County. He “retired” a second time two years ago.
