I delivered Meals on Wheels for the Agnews every Thursday. Rev Agnew was always the kindness man. I will miss seeing him every Thursday. My condolences to the family.
We will all miss Ray, our neighbor and friend. I am praying God's Love and Compassion and Comfort upon his family and friends. May we all look to JESUS who wants to be our Savior, Lord, and True Friend--our Everything.
Bro. Agnew was my boss in the WEC's Harvestime Department back in the mid-70's. He was one of the sweetest men I know and he had a very quiet way of teasing; reeled me in hook, line, and sinker until I knew I'd been had. My husband & friends at WEC purchased one of Sis. Agnew's paintings for my "going away gift." Still have it hanging in my guest bedroom; Sis. Agnew, I know you will miss him tremendously! Sis. Agnew, Tim & Sue, our prayers are with you and all of your family!
Donald and Tim,
Thinking about you and Aunt Lillie Bell - what a great life they lived. We should all be so lucky.

Just a note to let you know you are in our prayers. In every word that is spoken, also in every prayer that is lifted, we pray you feel God's love reaching to you.

Thanks be to God for a saint that left his sweet impression on our generation.
After moving to st louis in 2001, we were having thanksgiving without traveling to family...we looked up from our table and there was bro & sis Agnew with their family! We jumped to speak to them! They made us feel like "family". Every time I pass that restaurant? I think of that thanksgiving day! Nancy norris
It was an honor to know Bro. and Sis. Agnew and to work with their son, Tim at World Evangelism Center when I served in the General Youth Division. I felt a sense of loss when I read the announcement of Bro. Agnew's passing today. Thank the Lord for a man and woman who served so faithfully in the Kingdom of God. Bro. Agnew was a genuine Christian and gentleman.
My sincere condolences to you, Don, and your family. Your father's legacy lives on.
I remember the conference when Bro. Agnew was taken to the hospital and everyone was afraid for his life. Much prayer went up, and the Lord gave him many productive and happy years after that. Now it is his time to rest. We'll miss him, but rejoice at his home comming. Our love and prayers are with Sis. Agnew and the family. James and June McCoy.
Sis. Agnew, I want you to know that I deeply sympathize with you at this time of the loss of Bro. Agnew. He was your loyal and devoted companion for many years. Even though you and Bro. Agnew enjoyed a long and happy life together, from our earthly perspective Iknow it's never long enough. Bro. Nelson had fond memories of the times when he and his brother preached at your church in Sherman when the church was without a pastor, and you and Bro. Agnew always gave them a warm welcome and extended your hospitality to them. That was about 1952 or 1953, a long time ago. We both love and appreciate you. Bro. Agnew fought a good fight, finished his course, and he certainly kept the faith, and now he's getting ready to receive that crown Jesus promised him! He was a great Christian. May God bless and comfort you during this difficult time.

Truly the Agnews are a legend! We know it won't be long until we all meet again, but until that day, we are praying for this family's great loss! Mom McFarland is in Indiana and also sends her love and prayers.
I'm so sorry for your loss. You will all be in my prayers during this difficult time. Blessings.

It was a joy to work at Headquarters on S Grand Blvd with Bro Agnew. His sweet spirit, inspiring daily devotions and kindness will always be remembered. God bless his memory to his lovely wife and family. Rest in peace! Claudine M. Bunch, Baton Rouge, LA
I remember as a young girl going to the old Headquarters with my parents, Paul and Eileen Froese. Dad and Bro. Agnew would talk and talk and talk while I would go around into the different offices and talk to whoever was there. Those were some of my favorite memories. Whenever Dad would lead in singing "My Thanks to Him", he would always tell the congregation how much that song meant to him because he knew the author. Everytime we sing it, I still think of my Dad and Bro. Agnew. Our prayers are with this wonderful family. Heaven is a sweeter place because another soldlier has come home!
Reverend Ray Agnew was first of all a Christian. Tom and I have long admired him for his kind, gentle spirit, and his dedication to God and his family. He was an astute businessman, always planning and thinking about ways to advance the Kingdom of God, especially the radio ministry. His and Lillie Bell's contributions are beyond measure. They always worked so closely together all through the years, truly an adorable couple. Brother Agnew was "my buddy" and I enjoyed so much when he would stop by WEC and come into my office to visit. Sincere condolences to his precious wife and the rest of the family. He lived a full life but we will miss him. It seems he's just always "been there" & I guess I thought he always would be.
Forty years ago, Bro. Agnew hired me at the Pentecostal Publishing House. I was a young and scared 18-year-old girl, but he was great at putting me at ease and so gracious in all his ways. He was a wonderful Christian, always showing kindness and humility as well as great faith. Great is his reward, but he will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with Sis. Agnew, Donald, Tim, and their families.
