October 23, 1934 - January 5, 2020
Louis Michel Remy graduated to Glory on January 5, 2020, at the age of 85, at the Spalding Hospital, Griffin, Georgia. He was born to the late Tervicienne Michel and Marcelin Remy in Plaisance, Haiti on October 23, 1934. At an early age, he made the confession of faith and committed himself to serving Jesus-Christ for the rest of his earthly life. Michel was a dedicated member of Ebenezer Evangelical Baptist Church in Port-de-Paix, where he served as a youth minister, and met his sweetheart, Violette. They were united in holy matrimony on April 24, 1962. He was the Pastor of Lewis Memorial Baptist Church in Cazeau, Bethesda Baptist Church, in Port-au-Prince and Bethesda Missionary Baptist Church in Palmiste. Upon accepting the Ministerial calling of God upon his life, and with the assistance of Pastor James S. Rice, the Lord opened the doors for him to attend Gardner-Webb University (a College at that time), back in 1969. Leaving his dear wife and his two children then, Bruner and Idelette, he embarked on a Faith journey to Boiling Springs, NC. Two years later, Violette joined him, and a year later, another son, McFarland was added to the family. 1973, Louis Michel Remy graduated with honor, as Gardner-Webb’s first International student, with a double Major in Ancient language (Greek/Hebrew) and Accounting and a Minor in Religion. While it would have benefited him and his family to pursue a ioulucrative career in the United States, he made the costly, yet rewarding decision to honor God and return home and serve his people in Haiti. Shortly after his ordination as a Pastor in the Summer of 1976, God directed his steps to Cazeau, a remote town close to Port-au-Prince. Unbeknown to him, this would become the birthing ground of his Ministerial endeavors. A year later, Lewis Memorial Baptist Church was founded and dedicated, in memory of his late College professor, Dr. Thurman Lewis. He founded two other churches, Bethesda Baptist Church, in Port-au-Prince and Bethesda Missionary Baptist Church in Palmiste. Louis Michel was a faithful member of the Union of Evangelical Baptist Churches of Haiti (UEBH) and served on their executive board as a treasurer for several years. As an educator, Michel served as the principal of the Ebenezer Evangelical Baptist School in Port-de-Paix, Haiti for over 10 years. He taught Greek, Hebrew and Latin at the Maranatha Christian School and the UEBH Bible College, in Port-au-Prince. Louis Michel Remy was the epitome of an unselfish, loving, caring and disciplinary father and kingdom trailblazer. He was a spiritual father and mentor to many. The imprints of his life have forever marked several lives and generations. He fought a good fight of Faith and finished his race with honor, leaving a legacy to be carried out.
