In Memoriam: Pastor Gary H. Wells, 1932-2009

Gary Wells, beloved husband, father, grandfather, and Pastor Emeritus of Northwood Christian Church in Springfield Oregon, died peacefully under hospice care, yesterday, May 30, 2009.

I will add to this post later today.

For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.  But if I am to live on in the flesh, that will mean fruitful labor for me; and I do not know which to choose.  But I am hard-pressed from both directions, having the desire to depart and be with Christ, for that is very much better.  (NAS, Phil 1:21-23.

  1. Thanks, David, for this memorial to Gary. I feel this loss. I heard of his illness, but not his passing. So I’m grateful for your post. God bless, David. I have fond memories of our time at NCC, and I invite you to call on me if I can ever serve you or others around you.
