John L. Hurley


John L. Hurley, 81, of Fayetteville, formally of Mt. Carbon, WV, went home to be with the Lord on Tuesday April 19.
He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Cleo Hurley, and baby sister, Geraldine.
He is survived by his wife, of 55 years, Martha Bounds Hurley, son Mark Hurley and wife Pam of Fayetteville, daughter Anna Tackett and husband Joey of Mt. Carbon, daughter Teresa Fitzwater and husband Daniel of Hico, and son Pastor Greg Hurley and wife Misty of Edmond. He is also survived by 14 grandchildren, Seth Hurley and wife Dana, Laura Hurley, Caleb Hurley, Morgan Hurley, Hannah Hurley, Gentry Fitzwater, Abigail Hurley, Miranda Hurley, Emily Tackett, Felicity Fitzwater, Madison Hurley, Landon Tackett, Matthew Hurley, and Grant Hurley. He is also survived by sisters Ruby Stevens, Marie Easterling, Barbara Workman, Joan Lewis, and Jean Friley.
Countless lives were impacted by the life and ministry of Rev. John Hurley. Only eternity will tell the magnitude of his ministry. He served as Pastor of the Apostolic Lighthouse for forty years and then as Bishop when his son was elected Pastor at the Lighthouse and then at Solid Rock Worship Center. He is leaving more than just a life, he is leaving a legacy. Who he was, is now reflected in the lives of his children, grandchildren, and the many people who called him Pastor and Bishop. While he will be greatly missed in our lives here on earth, Heaven has gained a mighty warrior and soldier of the cross.
The family wishes to extend a special thank you to the staff of CAMC Memorial and the team from Family Medicine for their professional services and care.
Services will be held at the former Apostolic Lighthouse at Mt. Carbon, WV. Viewing will be from 6 to 9 pm on Friday, April 22, and the funeral will be Saturday, April 23 at 1 pm officiated by Rev. Daniel Garlitz. Burial will follow at High Lawn Cemetery in Oak Hill, WV.
