Obituary

"I want to stroll over heaven with you some glad day"

Reverend Gerald Compton attained his goal on May 20, 2023 as he entered his heavenly home. He was born May 20, 1937 to Glen & Rissie Compton.

He leaves his precious "lovey" Nancy Compton, of 57 years. His children, Michelle (Joe) Koontz, Christine (Tim) Davis, Quay Diane Compton, and his grandchildren, Morgan (Jacob) Selby, Mitchell Compton Davis (who is waiting there for him), Maxwell Davis, Quay Olivia, Joseph, and Sophia Koontz, have countless fond memories of laughter, prayers and direction. His remaining siblings Joanne (Andy) Pamer and Bonita Opperman will surely miss him.

Sharing God's love in simple, quiet action was his greatest accomplishment. He faithfully served the Lord at Brimfield Church, Kenmore, Apostolic Faith Assembly and then went on to pastor Wooster Apostolic Church. He dearly loved his saints and passed the torch to Pastor Ben (Rachel) Robinson. All who knew him will smile at the blessings of his faithful, selfless memory.

Gerald's memorial service will be held at Wooster Apostolic Church, 3030 St. Rt. 3, Wooster, OH  44691 on Thursday, May 25, 2023 at 12:00 PM. Calling hours will be Wednesday, May 24, 2023 4-7 PM at Cox-McNulty Funeral Home, 1376 High St, Wadsworth, OH 44281 and at the church on Thursday 10:45 AM until the service at the church.
