It’s with great sadness that we report on the death of Wilfred Lynn Wyatt. Wilf (as most of us knew him), Irene and their young family first became involved with Moortown Baptist Church in the early 1970’s. Since then, and with Irene’s constant support Wilf has served as a Deacon, as Church Secretary, Treasurer, preacher, organist, chorister and between 1996 and 2018 the leader of Autumn Leaves – a bible study cum prayer group focusing on the needs of the elderly.
In fact such was Wilf’s presence at MBC that among those of us who have been here a while there must be a fount of anecdotes covering no end of subjects. And so instead of us penning an obituary it’s these we invite you to share.
We’re doing it this way for two reasons: firstly because personal reflections have far more integrity than hear say, and secondly that as a number of Wilf’s elderly friends won’t have direct access to either our church website or to social media we would like to gather all your material together, print it out and deliver it to their homes.
Please send your contributions just as soon as you can by email to John Sherbourne at firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to Moortown Baptist Church, 204 King Lane, Leeds LS17 6AA marking the back of your envelope TRIBUTE.
As yet we don’t have any details of Wilf’s funeral Service, which obviously will have to be conducted under strict Coronavirus guidelines. However, as soon we do hear we will let you know. In the meantime if you would like to send a card or a note to Irene or to any other member of the Wyatt family would you please send them care of Moortown Baptist Church, 204 King Lane, Leeds LS17 6AA and we will pass them on. Thank you.
