Obnoxious Media regreats to inform you Bishop Joseph C. Gilkey has passed.  

The Lord has take yet another General home to be with Him in the Church of God In Christ. The Bishop Joseph C. Gilkey, Sr of Wichita, KS and BEST FRIEND of Bishop Floyd Eugene Perry has gone home to be with the Lord. Both of these great men, Bishop Gilkey and Bishop Perry passed only 3 days apart. They were so close that former Presiding Bishop Chandler D. Owens named them the Golden Boys.  

I had the opportunity to spend a great deal of time with these two distinguished gentleman during the conventions.  Bishop Gilkey was a fan and supporter of Obnoxious Media, evertime he saw me we would ask what I was working on next.  Even once he took me to lunch and shared with me he had been a boxer prior to getting saved and was a great encouragement to me.

 Bishop Gilkey was the Pastor of Saint Mark Church Of God In Christ and the Jurisdictional Bishop Emeritus of Kansas Southwest Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction. He survived three years after his wife Gladys passed due to Cancer.  Please pray for his son Mark and the Intire Gilkey Family.
