Thursday marked two years since a fatal fire took the life of a beloved Ocean City pastor, Reverend David Dingwall of the St. Paul's By The Sea Episcopal Church.

Ocean City Police say John Sterner, who frequented a food pantry in connection to the church known as Shepherd's Crook, doused himself in gasoline and lit himself on fire before walking into the pantry.

Bruce Young, a volunteer coordinator at Shepherd's Crook, says he was five feet away from Sterner.

"I was looking at John Sterner...didn't know who it was." He recalled Thursday.

The flames spread. It seriously injuring a volunteer and claimed the lives of Sterner and Reverend Dingwall.

Joe Fisher, a manager at Shepherd's Crook, credits Dingwall to much of the success of the food pantry.
