Hadley “Stretch” DePuy died early Tuesday morning, January 22. Stretch, a longtime member and ruling elder at Fourth Presbyterian Church, Bethesda, MD served on the Committee on Administration (COA) from 2006-2012. He brought outstanding strategic, big picture leadership to the COA during the time when the denomination grew from 180 to over 400 churches. He also chaired the COA Personnel Committee, which was re-established in 2009 to address pressing needs the General Assembly Office staff faced responding to the growth of the EPC. Stretch loved his Lord and His church, serving faithfully and enthusiastically at Fourth, in the Presbytery of the East in numerous capacities, as well as at the national level. The celebration of Stretch’s life will take place at Fourth Presbyterian Church, 5500 River Road, Bethesda, MD 20816 (phone: 301-320-3600) on Saturday, January 26, at 11 AM.
