Rev. Brian W. Vanciel, D.Min., 90, was called to join his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in heaven on January 24, 2014. Brian lived a full life of learning, teaching and ministering in seven U.S. states, the Navaho Nation, Canada, Haiti, American Samoa, and New Guinea. He was a devoted husband to Evelyn for 66 years and a loving father to Stephen, Mark, Andrea, William and Marie. Brian was able to enjoy spending time with his ten grandsons and twelve great-grand children. Brian served in the US Army in Europe during WWII. He had a great interest in history (MA degree) and his family genealogy that he researched and wrote about. Even in retirement in Porterville, CA, Brian continued to faithfully study and share God's Word. His greatest desire was that all would accept Jesus as their Redeemer and Lord. A Celebration of Life Service will be held at Porterville Church of the Nazarene on Saturday, February 15, at 2:00 pm.
