The faith community is sending love and prayers to multiple award-winning gospel recording artist, Donnie McClurkin.

Sadly, approximately 10 months after losing his mother, Frances McClurkin, due to complications from a massive heart attack, the pastor of the Freeport, NY-based Perfecting Faith Church is preparing for the home-going service of his father, Donald Andy McClurkin, Sr.

The 79-year-old family patriarch died in the wee hours of Wednesday morning, Nov. 13, of acute myocardial infarction, a leading cause of death worldwide. Commonly known as a heart attack, AMI occurs when there is a blockage of oxygen‐filled blood flow towards a part of the heart, eventually causing it to become damaged, and die.

McClurkin’s father’s demise came just four days after his minister son’s 54th birthday on Nov. 9.

The home-going service and celebration of his father’s life is set to take place on Wednesday, November 20 at Greater Allen AME Cathedral of New York in Jamaica, NY. The doors will open at 6:30pm and the service will be held at 7:00pm-9:30pm.

In an official statment The McClurkin family said they “would like to thank everyone for their prayers and words of encouragement during this challenging time.”

Cards, condolences and other expressions of sympathy and support may be sent to the family in care of Perfecting Faith Church at 311 N. Main Street, Freeport, NY 11520.
