ABCNJ Mourns the Loss of Rev. Ronald C. Quay

Announcement from First Baptist Church of Morristown: It is with regret that we announce the death of one of our former Pastors, Reverend Ronald C. Quay. He passed away on December 27, 2012 in Trinity Rock Island, Illinois. Ron was born December 9, 1944 in Toledo, Ohio. He graduated from Judson College in Elgin, Illinois in 1967 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree. He graduated in 1970 from Princeton Theological Seminary in Princeton, New Jersey with a Masters of Divinity Degree. He was the Pastor of the First Baptist Church of Morristown NJ for ten years from 1992 through 2002. Ron pastored the First Baptist Church during its darkest days. When our Church was destroyed by the fire, Ron gave everyone strength and encouragement to go on and began the rebuilding of our beloved Church building. Ron worked on interfaith issues and was committed to social justice action. He is survived by his wife, Marcy, and his two sons, Daniel and David, and several grandchildren. He will be deeply missed by our congregation.
