From the International Christian College Website this morning:
Dr Ted Herbert
It is with deep sadness that the college announces the passing of our Vice-Principal, Dr Ted Herbert, who went to be with the Lord in the early hours of Tuesday September 30th
In August 2008 Ted was admitted to hospital for some routine exploratory surgery and was subsequently diagnosed with cancer. The cancer progressed much more quickly than anyone anticipated, and by the time the new academic year began it seemed likely that Ted might only have a few weeks to live.
What was clear to everyone who came in contact with Ted throughout this period was the depth of his faith, the peace which came from God, and the grace and humour which were so much part of Ted’s character.
He had hoped to be able to come to college to address both our new and continuing students during our induction week, but this was not practical, so instead he spoke to the college community by way of a recorded message. Click below to hear it.
Ted will be deeply missed by all at ICC, not only for his immense contribution to the formation and development of the college and his superb abilities as a teacher of the Old Testament, but also for his sense of fun, and his deep personal concern for individuals at the college, both staff and students.
We send our sympathies to his wife Diana and his children Joy and David.
