Thomas Willey Death, Obituary – Thomas H. Willey Jr., who had served as one of our missionaries in Cuba and Panama, passed away recently, and all of us here at International Mission are saddened to learn of his passing. We are all heartbroken to learn of his demise, which took place not too long ago. His passing was not in recent memory. As he was growing up in Cuba, where his parents, “Pop” and “Mom” Willey, worked as missionaries for the Free Will Baptist church, he had an early desire to share the gospel with those who had rejected it.
His parents were missionaries for the Free Will Baptist church. While he was growing up in Cuba, he had this burning desire to witness to those people who had turned their backs on the gospel. During this time period, he was commonly referred to as “Pop” by those around him. Tom Jr. served in a variety of jobs during the course of his career, and in each and every one of those roles, he showed compassion toward individuals who were suffering and had lost their way in life. Throughout his career, Tom Jr. Because he had empathy, he was able to pull this off successfully.
We ask that you join us in praying for his family as they go through this challenging time after the death of a loved one, and we ask that you pray for them along with us. We know that this is a tough time for them.
The following idea is going through Clint Morgan’s head at this very moment: “In recent days, the family of IM, along with the rest of the Body of Christ, has been grieving over the death of yet another amazing worker for God. This person’s life was touched by God in a profound way. No matter where God placed Brother Tom, he served the Lord with the same unshakeable devotion, and he was a model of edification, encouragement, and edification for other believers.”
