Gary McSpadden, who had a lengthy vocal career, performing with the Statesmen, Oak Ridge Boys, Imperials, Bill Gaither Trio, and Gaither Vocal Band has passed away. He was also a soloist, songwriter, producer, television host, speaker and pastor of the Faith and Wisdom Church in Branson, Missouri.
As most of you know Gary and I have been in Tulsa at the Cancer Treatment Center of America.
Gary has been battling cancer along with other complications over the last several weeks.
This has been a quick and difficult journey we have been on. We knew this week that God had a plan and his healing would be here on earth or in heaven.
As of 8:40 AM Pastor passed peacefully surrounded by his family into the arms of God.
2 Timothy 4:7 says I have fought a good fight I have finished my course and I have kept the faith.
Pastor Gary fought hard, finished the race and was an unbelievable man of faith.
I would like to thank all the Faith and Wisdom church family and all the many friends who have prayed with us during this time.
Due to extenuating circumstances with Covid 19 we are working on plans for a celebration of life at a later date.
We will be communicating those plans as they develop.
Love you and thank you
