The Rev. Wardner T. FitzRandolph, son of Rev. and Mrs. Gideon H. FitzRandolph was born in China on June 25, 1892, where his parents were Seventh Day Baptist missionaries. He passed away in Daytona Beach, Fla., October 4, 1958. Funeral services were held in Texarkana, Ark., Friday, October 10, with the Rev. Marion C. Van Horn officiating.
The Rev. Mr. FitzRandolph was a graduate of Alfred University, Alfred, N. Y., and taught school for a time in the schools of Miller county, Ark. In 1913 he married Miss Bertha Pierce of Fouke, Ark., who survives him. They celebrated their 45th wedding anniversary on September 17, 1958. He was a veteran of World War I and was later employed in the mail service.
Mr. and Mrs. FitzRandolph served two five-year terms as our missionaries in Jamaica, B.W.I., going there in February, 1945, and returning to this country on July 19, 1956. During his years of service as supervisor of Seventh Day Baptist missions he also assisted in the establishment of Crandall High School and served as headmaster of the school. He also helped forward the Maiden Hall Country School project.
Both Mr. and Mrs. FitzRandolph gave of their very strength and life to the work of the Jamaica Seventh Day Baptist churches, providing leadership and encouraging an evangelistic spirit among the brethren of the island. He also made several supervisory trips to give help and encouragement to our pastors and workers in British Guiana, S. A., as requested by the Missionary Board. His relationship with the Board of Managers was always cooperative and helpful.
Since retiring from the employment of the Missionary Society the Rev. Mr. FitzRandolph had accepted the pastorate of the Daytona Beach Seventh Day Baptist Church. We record the death of this brother in Christ with sorrow and a sense of loss but bow to the will of our Heavenly Father in all things. We express to his family our deepest sympathy.
