Requiescat in Pace: Lee Stocks (1933-2008)
We got word this week that Lee Stocks died last Sunday, September 14, 2008 in High Point, NC. Lee served a stint as intentional interim pastor at JPBC in 1996-1997 between John Herndon's tenure and my own. The funeral service for Lee will be held at 11 am on Saturday, September 20 at FBC Kernersville, NC.
Lee was a native of Lauringburg, NC and a graduate of Wake Forest University and Southeastern Baptist Seminary. He and his wife Doris served for 10 years as IMB missionaries in Zambia. He then served for 20 years as a hospital chaplain in Lynchburg, VA. In his retirement years he served several churches in Virginia and North Carolina as an intentional interim pastor. He served in that role at JPBC during an important time of transition for this congregation. In addition to his wife of 53 years, Lee leaves behind three sons and five grandchildren.
