Byron Evans – passed away

We received the very sad message this morning from Peg Evans that her husband Byron Evans, passed away yesterday evening. She was with him when it happened, and fortunately her daughter Catherine and son David with their spouses were also present and supported her.

All of us had a very special relationship with Byron and his death touches us deeply. I assured Peg of GST’s deepest sympathy, prayers and appreciation of what Byron with Peg on his side did in God’s Kingdom, and particularly then for GST.
