Pastor Marc Abbatacola|| Good Bye for Now
It is with great, great sadness that we announce the sudden death of our beloved former Executive Director, Pastor Marc Abbatacola. Pastor Marc died, Tuesday July 4, after he suffered a heart attack while kayaking with his wife Jennifer. Marc was surrounded by family while vacationing this week in Wisconsin. Though taken to the hospital, he never revived from the moment he slumped over in the boat. "Absent from the body present with the Lord." 2 Corinthians 5:8
Pastor Marc served with excellence as our Executive Director from 2011-2016. He touched many lives and fully lived out his calling here at HCA. His impact is vast touching alumni, former students and current students, as well as so many people at the Elgin Campus of Harvest Bible Chapel.
The family is requesting that we focus our expression of condolences on the wake, which will be held this Sunday night July 9, starting at 5:00 PM. The memorial service will be Monday, July 10, at 10:00 AM. All services will be held at the Elgin campus in the Worship Center.
In lieu of flowers a college fund has been created for the Abbatacola children. Please make checks payable to The Abbatacola College Fund. Checks can be mailed to: The Abbatacola College Fund, 213 Woodland Park Circle, Gilberts IL, 60136.
Please lift up Jennifer and their children Justin (and wife Kerri), Lilli, Paige, Tommy and Sofie in prayer.
