Entered his eternal rest on September 8th, 2006
Mervin Pfautz was a faithful adherent to Deaf Christian Church for many years. He was Deaf and Blind, but only ever prayed for healing of his eyes. He wanted to see again, and now he does; in the presence of his savior, Jesus Christ.
Mervin was a joy to be with. He was attended to often by Grace Bishop who was the primary tactile interpreter for Mervin over the years, though many others served him as well.
Mervin was a joy to have at Deaf Christian Church (Now, Philly Deaf). He rarely complained, and often would rise from his seat during 'testimony time,' to be led to the front to tell how good God had been to him, and to share a favorite verse of scripture.
