Death of Len Eastwood

Jacques Venter [BUC Associate Executive Secretary]

We were saddened to learn of the death of Len Eastwood on 19 September 2019. Len was born on 1 December 1943 in Chelmsford, Essex. On 26 March 1968 Len married Patricia Jean Palmer and their union brought about three children: Stephen Eastwood, Kaylene Chadwick and Keren Milanovic.

Len began working at the Sanitarium Health Foods Company in 1970 but in that same year he moved to Australia to work as an accountant in the Greater Sydney Conference. Between 1974 and 1981 Len served in the Central Pacific Union Mission, Sierra Leone Mission and the Masanga Leprosy Hospital. At the end of 1981 Len and Pat returned to England where he served in various capacities within the South England Conference, the British Union Conference and the Stanborough Press until the late 1990s. His last 10 years of employment was spent working for the Co-operative Funeral Company.

Len leaves behind his wife, Pat and their children and grandchildren as well as Len's brother John. A memorial service will take place at Newbold church, Binfield on Wednesday 9 October 2019 at 2:30 pm.

We now look forward with his family, to Christ's soon return and that glorious resurrection day.
