Mary Ellen Barger just informed me of Pastor Hitchcock's passing. I remember fondly all the visits while at Lenoir Rhyne. I can still remember when he came to Allentown to marry Ed & I 35 years ago at Muhlenburg Chapel. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
“Hickory has lost one of her treasures. Our love and prayers are sent to the entire family.
With all our love and sympathy,
Bill and Susan McDonald, Sunset Beach, NC
