Quincy Egwu
July 28, 1991 — Aug. 14, 2020

Quincy Egwu’s love for Jesus and love for people shone through his life story. Our 29-year-old friend, family member, and ministry leader died in August 2020 while hiking in the White Tank Mountains. Even until his last moments, he was serving others, scouting out practice routes for young adults to prepare for a Grand Canyon trip he planned to lead for other young adults from church.

Honestly, Quincy might be embarrassed that we are putting the spotlight on him and his actions, but we want you to know the deep legacy Quincy leaves behind on Earth.

Quincy was an incredibly gentle and kind person who grew into carrying the mantle of leadership in a distinctly humble manner. He was outrageously generous, especially to people who found themselves in need of rent, legal help, food and transportation. He arranged events like Samaritan’s Feet to give out shoes and toys for kids who just moved here from war-torn countries.

Encouraging friends on their fitness journeys, discussing comic books and superhero movies, and listening to Christian hip-hop were some of Quincy’s passions.

Anyone who knew Quincy also knew how deeply he loved his family especially his parents Kenneth and Delrose and his brother Jeremy.

He was a faithful and loving husband to Cynthia and an amazing dad to baby Cairo. Just one look at the pictures of all of them and you can tell the warmth of his love toward the new family he and Cynthia were building together.

We are forever grateful to his family and God for bringing such an amazing person in our lives.

Quincy accomplished more in 29 years than most do in a lifetime.
