We are saddened to share with you that the morning of Wednesday, July 25, Gregg Richards passed away peacefully at his home. It was a surprise to all. Gregg never missed a day of work. He had an unexpected cardiac event.
Gregg will be greatly missed. He had a strong relationship with the Lord and it drove his on-air professionalism. He had a unique sense of humor and wit. Countless families throughout our listening audience have been blessed through hearing him on the radio as he has been at WFRN for nearly 20 years.
Thank you for joining us in praying for his family. We praise the Lord with you that he is currently rejoicing in God’s presence.
One of his favorite Bible verses was shared that adorns his office and home, Psalm 91:1-16 (NIV):
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,my God, in whom I trust.” Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked. If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent. “Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.”
