We were saddened to learn of the recent death of Worley Berisford of Zanesville, OH. One of GCI’s oldest members, Worley died peacefully at age 102. Born in 1916 in West Virginia, Worley married Virginia (Ginny) Kurtzman in 1941. Virginia survives him.
A veteran of the U.S. Army, Worley served in six World War II campaigns as a member of the 82nd Airborne Division. He was a school teacher for 80 years, not fully retiring until 91. He had a great passion for music; his favorite pastime was playing his fiddle while his wife accompanied on the piano. He was a devoted husband, father and grandfather, and also a long-time member of GCI’s Cambridge, OH, congregation where he served as a worship leader and sermon speaker. Worley loved the Lord Jesus Christ with all his heart.
