Obituary

Our beloved Dad and apostolic father in the faith, Rev. George L. Veach of Rochester, NY, victoriously passed into the presence of the Lord—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—on February 26, 2020. Rev. Veach was born to Alva and Goldie Veach (Conley) on January 7, 1931, in Portsmouth, Ohio.

Rev. George L. Veach was early called into the ministry and preached his first sermon at eleven years of age. He met and wed the love of his life, Rev. Ruth Spencer Veach, at Elim Bible Institute, Hornell, NY, in 1949. Their ministry together spanned three continents and included pastorates in the eastern coast of the North America; Cardenas, Cuba; and various cities of Argentina, Chile, and Peru in South America.

Rev. Veach served as a global missionary statesman equipping leaders. His posts included the Home Secretary of Elim Fellowship (EF), Lima, NY; Vice-President of EF; appointed Elder to the Latin community of EF; and faithfully served the founders and his in-laws, Rev. Ivan and Minnie Spencer of Elim Bible Institute & College and Elim Fellowship, Lima, NY. He served as President of Worldwide Christian Fellowship, Atlanta, GA. Rev. Veach served in the foundational years of Iglesia Evangelica Betel, Cuba, with Sixto and Ruth Lopez, founders. He also served the founder, Rev. Sam Sorenson, of the Movimiento Cristiano y Misionero, Argentina, and worked with the founder of World MAP, Prescott, AZ, Rev. Ralph Mahoney, in training national leaders all over the world. His apostolic and prophetic office was embraced in many countries, including Argentina, Bangladesh, Chile, Cuba, Ecuador, India, Indonesia, Italy, Kenya, Mexico, Mozambique, Peru, the Philippines, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, Tanzania, Thailand, and Uganda. Fluent in Spanish as well as English, Rev. Veach was an endeared father of the global Latin community and is affectionately celebrated to this day.

Predeceased by his devoted wife, Ruth, Rev. George L. Veach is survived by his beloved children, Judy (Richard) Williams, Dale (Sandy) Veach, Rev. Nancy (Rev. Jeff) Clark, Mary (Rev. Alan) Schrader, and Edie (John) Mourey; 10 grandchildren; and many great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his sisters, Louise (Don) Shields, Doris Aills, and Donna Castle; and brothers, Rev. Richard Veach, and Ron (Barbara) Conley.

A service of memorial will be held on Monday, March 2, 2020, at 10:00 a.m. at Faith Church, 1876 Elmwood Avenue, Rochester, NY 14620. Flowers are welcome, and memorials may be made in care of Mutual Faith Ministries. Donations will be gifted to Destiny Christian School and missions. Arrangements O’Connell-Dougherty Funeral Home.

"Jesus Christ is still the King of Kings, King of Kings King of Kiiiiings!" As GV sang that lyric, it went right into my heart and I've never lost the joy and purpose of it. "get All Excited Go Tell Everybody" is an anthem for us. prophetic ministry was clear, caring and grace style corrective. The farmer, hard worker, and dad, teacher that was GV will be missed. No replacements can happen, just multiplication of his ministry.

I'm currently a member of The Gideons International. I am also a member at Friends of the Cross Church in Corning New York. Approximately 10 years ago the church invited me to speak for The Gideons . Before I spoke I played the trumpet in a song called He Touched Me by the Gaithers. George was my neighbor but I didn't know I was at the church he attended. As I played George stood and sang with me. I have attended that church as a member playing ever since. I will never forget him.Pastor Veach followed the holy spirit always.

I would like to extend my heartfelt condolences to the family of Brother Veach. He had an indelible imprint on my young life growing up in the Elim family. I will never forget the prophetic words that he prayed over me during prophetic presbytery, and the words he spoke over my wife Stephanie and I at our wedding. One funny memory -- speaking of Brother Veach's booming voice -- at our wedding reception, at the clinking of the glasses calling for a kiss, I sheepishly held up a napkin over our faces, and gave my wife just a little peck (not wanting to embarrass her). he bellows out from the back -- "YOU DID BETTER THAN THAT BEFORE GOD!"

I’ll never forget Grandma, Uncle Dick, Uncle George and dad ( Ed), singing “I'm Going Home to Heaven”. Grandma was singing and playing the piano and it seemed like there was a competition on which brother could out sing the other. I believe Uncle George may have won. Uncle George, Grandma and dad are now singing in that glorious land they sang about so long ago.
