Dr. Culbreth Y. Melton former president of Emmanuel College, passed into eternity late Wednesday afternoon, December 28, 2016. He passed away in a rehab facility in West Virginia, after a bad fall a couple of weeks ago.
His son Jim and his wife Martha were with him when he passed. He had been living with his son the last couple of years in West Virginia.
Dr. Melton after retiring continued to teach at Emmanuel College and also was teacher of the Sr. Adult class here at the Franklin Springs Pentecostal Holiness Church. He was an amazing man of limitless resource in preparing for a lecture or lesson and also in his dry wit and sense of humor!
Our prayers go out to Jim Martha and the children.
