It is with extreme sadness that we inform you that the Very Reverend Richard Ballew, Pastor of St. Athanasius Church in Sacramento, California, fell asleep in the Lord on Saturday, December 13, 2008. His Grace, Bishop JOSEPH has asked the parishes to please remember him in your prayers for the departed for the next 40 days and to hold a special Trisagion for his eternal life.

My heart is broken. Nacho and I had several lengthy conversations with Fr. Richard when we were looking into the Holy Church. He was significant in directing us towards the truth of Holy Orthodoxy. He was a kind, generous and loving priest....it seemed he never forgot a name or face.

May his memory be eternal

My condolences to his family and the parish family at St. Athanasius.

May Father Ballew's Memory be Eternal and May the Lord comfort and strengthen both Father Ballew's family and parish in such difficult times during this holiday season.

Amen!

I will never forget Father Richard. He was one of the most amazing dynamic Priest I have ever met. He played a HUGE part in bringing me into Orthodoxy. He always knew the right things to say and was very intuitive to where people were at on a spiritual level. He will be missed greatly!

Memory Eternal!

He was a wonderful leader as the dean of the Northern California Deanery. He was always very supportive of our retreats
and attended them until his health prevented him from coming. His khouria is a sweet, tiny southern woman who is a very loving lady. May God also be with her in her time of grief.
