Death of John McDuffie

We were saddened to learn of the recent death of John McDuffie, associate pastor of GCI’s congregation in Athens, GA. Here is a tribute to John from the congregation’s lead pastor, Bill Tollner.

Mr. Mac, as we affectionately called him, was strong in the Lord to the end. It was simply inspiring to be in his presence. He exuded the strength of God in his weakened state, and will be remembered to that end by many. One of his favorite scriptures was 2 Cor 1, the God of Comfort. That was, I believe, a cornerstone of Mr. Mac’s ministry.

Mr. Mac’s obituary will be posted on the website of the Gardenview Funeral Chapel at Cards and notes may be sent to:

Mrs. Reba W. McDuffie
1203 New Kings Bridge Road,
Athens, GA 30607

  1. Dear Reba,

    We are thinking of you during this most difficult time. Be of good courage. John is with the Lord. The day draws nearer when we will all be again with our loved ones.

    In Him,
    Santiago and Elke

  2. Mr. McDuffie was one of the first people I met back in early 1960’s when joined WCG. He was a very gracious, warm, sweet, loving man. I always loved being around him. He made people feel included. His wife, Reba, also had the same Christ like attributes. I look forward to a family reunion.

    My prayers are with Reba and the entire family and dear friends on this journey. Be assured our Lord and Savior is in their presence bring comfort from many sources.

    Always in His hands,
    Sarah Faulkner
