Rev Dr Andrew Backus died on 22 Jan 2020 at the age of 75. Many Vancouver Unitarians will remember Andy as UCV’s interim minister from 2000 to 2002, just before Rev Dr Steven Epperson began his ministry at UCV.
A memorial service for Rev Backus was held at 2 pm on Saturday, February 15, 2020, at the Bellingham Unitarian Fellowship, 1207 Ellsworth St, Bellingham, WA 98225. Notes of condolences may be sent to Chris Backus at 2746 Broadway St, Bellingham, WA 98225.
The UUA Service of the Living Tradition honours all UU ministers who have died in the preceding year, and will be live-streamed on Thursday, 25 June 2020 from 3-4 pm Pacific Time. A written memorial to Andy is included in this memorial book prepared by UUA in support of this service.
