In Loving Memory of
Rev. Cyrus "Cy" Stevens Mallard, Jr.
Pastor Emeritus

November 17, 1927 - December 22, 2017

It is with deep sadness that I write to inform you that our beloved Pastor Emeritus Cy Mallard died this morning and joined our Lord and Savior. While we grieve his passing, we also celebrate the great man that he was and the great legacy he leaves behind.

In his 39 years of pastoral ministry, Cy served five Presbyterian churches, including 28 years at Roswell Presbyterian Church. While he led RPC through enormous growth, the impact of his ministry has been felt far beyond the church's walls. Cy was instrumental in founding many organizations that served the surrounding community, including North Fulton Community Charities, HomeStretch, and the Child Development Association, among others. He was a man of sincere warmth, a contagious sense of humor, and a deep and abiding love for Christ and his church.

We will gather to celebrate Cy's life in a service of witness to the resurrection on Wednesday, December 27 at 2:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary at Roswell Presbyterian Church.

Please join me in lifting up Cy's wife, Ann, his daughter, Mary, his son, Mark, and their families in prayer.

During this Christmas season, let us remember the one who came into the world to offer us life, hope, and light in the midst of the darkness of death. Cy's life and witness remind us of the great hope that we have in Jesus Christ.

Your pastor,

Rev. Jeff Meyers
Senior Pastor
