Obituary for Reverend Kevin D Ginyard

Rev. Kevin Darnell Ginyard, Sr. was born in Stamford, CT on March 23, 1953 to the late Rev. W.D. Ginyard and Helen L. Ginyard. He very suddenly departed this life on December 19, 2018 after a brief illness. Young Kevin soared to excellence in the Stamford Public School System - he was even the President of his graduating class at Stamford High School. Kevin went on to graduate from the University of Bridgeport with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism and Public Relations. Following college, Kevin eventually joined Holy Tabernacle Church of God in Christ in Bridgeport, where he faithfully served his mentor, the late Bishop Ivory W. Holden for over 20 years. During that time, he won the heart of the love of his life - Patricia Holden Ginyard. Kevin and Pat married on October 22, 1977. Rev. Ginyard was a pillar in the Bridgeport community. He served 2 terms as the President of the city-wide ministerial alliance (IMA), was the director of WIBO, (an entrepreneurial training program), and was the Chairman of the Board for the historic Mary & Eliza Freeman Center in Bridgeport. In July of 1998, Rev. Ginyard founded Holy City Church of God in Christ (Bridgeport) - a ministry dedicated to reclaiming the lost souls of men, women, and children for Jesus Christ. Rev. Ginyard continued to serve as the beloved Pastor of Holy City COGIC, and Administrative Assistant to Bishop Loran Mann (Prelate of the Vermont Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction) until his demise. He leaves to cherish his memory: His loving wife of 41 years, Patricia, his 2 adult children, Kevin, Jr. (Shari), and Noel, a niece/daughter, Taylor, 3 brothers, Pastor Barry, Pastor Gilbert, and Michael, 3 sisters, Constance, Carolyn, and Michelle, a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives, his loving church congregation, and the countless lives he impacted during his time on this Earth.
