Passing of Rev. Dr. David Paul Gleason

The Rev. Dr. David Paul Gleason died peacefully at his home
on Wednesday, March 8, 2017. He was 70 years old.

Pastor Gleason served faithfully as the Pastor of Trinity Lutheran
Church in East Berlin from 1972 until 1981.  He was loved by our
congregation and the wider community.  He will long be remembered for
his passion and vision for ministry in East Berlin as well as in his
subsequent calls, including his service as Senior Pastor at First
Lutheran in Pittsburgh until his retirement in 2013.

Our prayers are with David's family and friends during this difficult time.
