Dr. Avery conducted a revival at my church in Houston when I was a teenager. I went to every service and still remember his captivating, enchanting and uplifting sermons. They were replete with science, morality, and relevance to my personal life. I have thought of him often over the more than 50 years since I last saw him.
I have had a very successful career and am proud to say I have a large loving family. I have worked and lived all over the world. Dr Avery's approach to life and the gospel have contributed to the core of my personal relationship with God.
Last weekend I mentioned him to some friends over dinner and decided to look him up online. I am very sorry to learn of his passing but in was any of his loved ones still refer to this page I wanted you to know the impact he has had on my life.
May God Bless and keep you,

My sincere sympathy to each of you in this time of great loss. Dr. Avery was the best teacher I ever heard and each time I saw his name on the guest speakers list at South Main Baptist Church in Houston, I made sure to be a part of the class. Not only did his command of the Bible astound me, but his knowledge of history brought the lesson to life. A gentle soul upon this earth who touched so many. You were blessed to have him as a husband, father and grandfather. We were blessed to have him as a physician, teacher and friend.
Blessings and peace to you.

Iva Jo, I am Janet Kendrick and was only 10 yrs old when you and Maple came to East Fourth Baptist in Big Spring, TX. He made God become alive in my life and a great continuing pleasure of reading my Bible. I have too many good memories of him and Billy Rudd to list and the impact they had on my life in my teenage years. I truly believe I was blessed to have known him. We will have you and your family in our prayers. God Bless you and yours.
