Kansas City, Mo. The executive director of the Liberty Memorial Association resigned unexpectedly Wednesday, one day after his wife also quit her job at the memorial.
Steve Berkheiser sent his resignation notice to members of the association's Board of Governors by e-mail.
The executive committee of the association's board plans to meet today to discuss the resignation. Committee members Gary Sherrer and Anita Gorman said they could not comment because it was a personnel matter.
Berkheiser's wife, Margriet, resigned from the memorial Tuesday. For the last two and a half years, she had been in charge of processing orders for bricks in the memorial's Walk of Honor.
Margriet Berkheiser quit immediately, but Steve Berkheiser gave two weeks' notice and will stay until May 23.
