Obituary from the Eugene Register Guard:

A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Monday, March 29, at the First Congregational Church in Eugene for Ray Edward McIndoo of Springfield, who died March 24 of leukemia. He was 73.

He was born July 12, 1936, in Jewell County, Kan., to Ray and Theda Aubushon McIndoo. He married Connie Pierson on July 18, 1955, in Caldwell, Idaho.

[It should also be noted that Ed was a graduate of Northwest Christian College (now University) in the Class of 1958, and completed his seminary work at Phillips Graduate Seminary.]

He served as pastor at churches in Oklahoma, Colorado and Ontario, Ore., as well as Springfield Christian Church and St. Paul Methodist Church in Springfield. He served as [hospital and] hospice chaplain at Censored by Corporate Social Media Policy* and as professor at Northwest Christian University.

Survivors include his wife; two daughters, Pamela Starks of Bonaire, Ga., and Lynette Greco of Folsom, Calif.; a brother, Cecil of Greenleaf, Idaho; a sister, Hazel Macy of Newberg; seven grandchildren; and one great-grandchild.

Hope was one of the keys to Ed’s spiritual life as a minister of the Gospel of Christ.  This video on Hope is set to the music of Secret Garden and the piece “Celebration” from their album “White Stone.”


Shalom, my friend, mentor, colleague and brother in Christ.
