Fred Cable

We lost a brother in the faith Monday night when Fred Cable died at his home; but he received the crown of life. He is survived by his wife, Donna. Fred had just had knee replacement surgery on June 9, was home by Thursday and doing well. So much so that he worshiped with us on Sunday, and looked good considering the surgery.

I had the privilege of baptizing him in January 2013 (he chose Joseph as his baptismal name), then confirming Fred and Donna as well as others in March 2013.

Fred was always inquisitive, never afraid to ask questions. And I appreciated that. We will miss his smile and easy going manner. But we also rejoice with him in his victory in Jesus Christ.

Lord, look with favor upon Donna and all who mourn Fred’s death. Encourage and comfort them with the knowledge that nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus. He has fought the good fight, living by faith in Christ alone. Grant that we all may remain steadfast and hear the words spoken to Fred: “Well done, good and faithful servant”;  through Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen

    Thank you Pastor.
    He was such a sweet man. He was so excited to be with us on Sunday. He told me that he had to be there ro give us a good send off for the convention. He couldn’t miss it! He showed me the incision and said he didn’t want to gross any one out. Hugged me and gave me a handful of Skittles ( candy). Something we both love! His smile was as big as his heart. Will miss my brother in Christ.

    Pastor Rich, These are beautiful words for such a beautiful man. I mourn the loss of my brother who set a wonderful example of living the Gospel with his life through faith in Jesus Christ. Always joyful, always smiling, and filled with a peace that only Jesus Christ can bring! I share in your prayers for Donna, may our Lord comfort her and enfold her in His great love.

    I will truly miss seeing Fred at church and classes and his friendly, smiling, kind spirit and sense of humor. My heart goes out to Donna.
