An Important Message from Pastor Marcus

Sunday, October 11, 2020

It is with a heavy heart I make you aware that our beloved Pastor Emeritus, The Rev. Dr. Robert Seymour, passed away this afternoon at 12:39 pm at UNC Memorial Hospital in Chapel Hill. Dr. Seymour had fallen during the night and was rushed to the ER. At age 95 surgery was not an option. We hold his family deep in our hearts as they mourn; daughter Frances and her husband Mike, and son Rob and his wife Kelly and their children. When service details are finalized you will be informed. I know that Bob Seymour’s life and witness of the good gospel, his unwavering commitment to justice and peace, and his unfailing shepherd’s heart will be missed by all of us. He was aware and grateful of your love and prayers til the very end. With much affection for you, Marcus

I was one of those in 1958/59 who helped start the church and called Bob to be a pastor. The Lotz boys, Dean Smith and several of us, including an African American student got it going and were impressed with Bob and thrilled with what he did. Sorry I had to leave not long after he got there but watched with interest over the years. Keith Parker, Brevard, N.C.
