Irwin "Jack" Treend, age 91, went to live eternally with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on December 1, 2016 after a courageous fight with Alzheimer's disease.

Jack was born in Port Sanilac, Michigan on June 6, 1925. He served in the U.S. Navy in World War II and was a Navy pilot In the Korean War. He returned home and graduated from the University of Houston. Jack worked in the paint business and was very active in Gideon's International. He graduated from Dallas Theological Seminary in 1983 at which time he founded and thus became the first pastor of Walden Community Church. Jack retired from teaching after 32 years of service. Jack will be revered by friends and family as a man of faith who preached the Word.
