Junior Robert Bourn, age 85, of Wauseon passed away early Wednesday January 28, 2015 at the Fulton County Health Center. After his retirement as an Electrician from the Campbell Soup Company where he had worked for more than 25 years, he became an Ordained Minister in 1991 and went on to pastor the Faith Missionary Baptist Church near Traverse City, Michigan for 17 years, retiring in 2008.



Mr. Bourn was born on March 9, 1929 in Chesterfield Township, Fulton County, the only son (child) of the late Seth Lyman and the late Hazel (Kohn) Bourn. On August 11, 1950 he married the former Ilva Peters and she survives. He was a member of Faith Baptist Church in Wauseon. He came to know Christ as his Savior at age 21 and served Him the rest of his life. He immensely enjoyed preaching the Gospel to everyone.

Preceding him in death was foster daughter Tina Peters Graber, grandson Christian Michael Canada, great grandchildren Isaac Andrew Downing, Sylvie Soleil Heising and Jasper Henry Heising.
