Mr. D. Erasmus Gongar

The righteous perish, and no one takes it to heart; the devout are taken away, 1and no one understands that the righteous are taken away to be spared from evil. Those who walk uprightly enter into peace; they find rest as they lie in death. Isaiah 57:1-2

The Gongar, Pearson, and Davies families announce with profound regrets the passing of our beloved husband, father, brother, nephew, uncle and cousin Mr. D.
