It is with great sadness that we learn of Pastor Ron Sedo’s death last weekend from complications from heart surgery. Pastor Ron Sedo served First Lutheran, Port Colborne as our interim minister in 2020. We truly appreciated his willingness to assist in our time of need. He was a kind, gentle person whose words of wisdom were deeply appreciated. We remember Pastor Sedo in our prayers.
We also pray for his wife Marilyn and their family as they mourn Pastor Sedo’s death.
Help is needed!
