Upon her graduation, they married and moved back to Sarah’s hometown of Chattanooga. Having been raised in different faiths, Mr. and Mrs. Losey searched for a church to raise their family and were baptized members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in March of 1975.

Mr. Losey has served in various capacities in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints including Sunday School president, executive secretary to the Bishop, Elder’s Quorum president, and a counselor in the Bishopric to name a few.
