Rev. Roosevelt Gilchrist of Woodland CA Passes away at 92 - A Real Spiritual Poineer

WOODLAND, CA (IFS) -- The Reverend Roosevelt Gilchrist passed away this morning at approximately 8:38am in his bed with family and friends around him.  The Rev. Gilchrist was an ordained teacher and helped everyone at anytime.  He was born in North Carolina in the early 1900's and experienced the first baby steps of the Wright Brothers with airplanes to NASA going to the Mars.

Known to his friends as one of the great story tellers of the family.  He would keep you laughing for hours with his stories of growing up on the East coast.

Death has touched another Christian family. Again a family has gone to the valley of the shadows of death and left a loved one there. Though they returned heartbroken and with a void space, there beloved has stepped into the heaven of life, where there is no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, nor pain and suffering.

We are saddened to announce the passing of our brother and former member Judge Harris, who was called home, where "it is well" in that better place. Funeral arrangements are pending and will be made known as they become available.
