George W. "Bill" Webber, a legendary figure in urban ministry, former dean of students at Union Theological Seminary, and former president of New York Theological Seminary, passed Saturday morning, July 10, 2010. He died peacefully in his sleep at home. The family is planning a public memorial service in New York later in the fall. There will also be a celebration of Bill's life on August 15 in in Sorrento, Maine, where the Webbers have their summer home.
Please keep his wife Helen and the entire Webber family in prayer. We have lost a giant in theological education and a good friend. His legacy will continue to live on as he now joins that heavenly host of witnesses that surrounds us.
