ASR Steve Penny

ASR Steve Penny passed into the presence of his Lord and Saviour on Thursday 25th April 2019.

Steve was a lively and engaging character, showing immense enthusiasm for sharing the Lord Jesus with soldiers, and took great satisfaction in his Scripture Reading duties.

Steve's involvement with SASRA was deep, with years spent as the Area Representative to the South East; instrumental in developing our current recruitment, selection and training process; and as a Scripture Reader to the Armed Forces in and around Windsor. His absence will be felt by all at SASRA, to whom he was both colleague and friend.

We pray that the Lord will keep and comfort Shereen and the family as they mourn Steve.

The funeral took place in Windsor on Friday 24th May 2019. Please remember those attending in your prayers, especially Shereen and the family. The SASRA family were out in force to escort him home.

"Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labour is not in vain."

1 Cor 15:58

 

A note from Shereen:

 

I'm starting to receive flowers but I would rather people donated the money to SASRA in honour of Steve.

… A donation to the memory of Steve, whose heart's desire was to look after soldiers' pastoral needs won't be made impersonally… I will be notified by SASRA of everyone who has remembered Steve in this way and this will be a comfort to me more than flowers.

Thank you.

Love Shereen x

In light of Shereen's wishes, if you would like to leave a gift in memoriam of Steve, you can find details of how to do so on our donations page. Any notes and kind words left with the gifts will be passed on to Shereen and the family.
