Bill Buick, 1941-2020

We are sad to report the passing of our friend and former President of New Church Challenge, William Buick.

Bill moved on from this life on February 21, 2020, at his home in Bryn Athyn, surrounded by his wife and family. Much like his usual demeanor, Bill had a quiet and graceful struggle against cancer, since his diagnosis in late 2018.

After serving as President  from 2009-2018, Bill stepped down from the role when he began his treatment. He never wanted to burden his friends and he continued to serve as an active supporter of New Church Challenge, despite his health.

Bill was recognized at our last annual meeting for his many years of service and he was given a new dogwood tree for his yard which was planted last spring.  Bill will not see that tree blossom this year, but we hope he is enjoying the heavenly blossoms with his keen spiritual senses.

Well done, good and faithful servant. Thou hast been faithful in a few things;
I will appoint thee over many. Enter thou into the joy of thy lord. Matthew 25:21
