David Downy

From Mary Lirot

My Dad, David Downy was on the board of the CDEA & I believe the College of the Scripture for many years and did oversight with Morgan Park Church as well as Paxton Ave. and Forest Park in Joliet which he started. As you know, he was a missionary to black families in the Chicago/Joliet areas. He ministered at all 3 of the above churches as well as other congregation before his NTNE work when he was first out of college. He passed yesterday at 3:30 a.m. in a hospice in KY near my sister’s home where she was with him. He had advanced Parkinson’s disease.
