Silver Spring, Maryland, United States
Warren Judd, former CEO of the Adventist Media Center in California, passed away at his home this morning.
Warren was an accomplished media authority and talented musician. But most importantly, he was a devoted husband, father and a committed Christian . . . He will be missed.
Pastor Daniel Jackson, president of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in North America, has offered condolences on behalf of the Church.
“Warren was an accomplished media authority and talented musician. But most importantly, he was a devoted husband, father and a committed Christian,” said Pastor Jackson. “Warren helped significantly advance the use of audiovisual technology in the Adventist Church. He will be missed.”
Warren’s daughter-in-law Andrea expressed her gratitude to all those who have shown love and support for their family. She praised God for allowing her father to pass away peacefully, even though it was on her mother’s 70th birthday.
“Mum has been a rock through all of this. Certainly not without tears and great heartache, but with a greater faith!” said Andrea. “On top of it all, today is her 70th birthday. And she said, ‘I know many might feel differently and not understand, but I’m actually glad he died on my birthday. It makes it a very special and sacred day.’”
“It is very sad to hear Warren Judd has passed away,” said James Standish, communication director of the Adventist Church in the South Pacific. “He played a key role in developing Adventist Media in all its forms, in both Australia and the US. I pray God comforts his family at this very sad time.”
