Bishop Edward L. SalmonThe Rt. Rev. Edward L. Salmon, Jr.
January 30, 1934 - June 29, 2016
 
Please keep the family of the Rt. Rev. Edward L. Salmon, Jr. in your prayers. Bishop Salmon, who from  1990 - 2008 served as the 13th Bishop of the Diocese of South Carolina, died on Wednesday, June 29, 2016 following a battle with cancer.

“He was a champion of the faith; a tireless churchman—whose principled wisdom, sagacious humor and razor wit were legendary and widely loved by the casual acquaintance as well as by his family and longtime friends,” said the Rt. Rev. Mark Lawrence, 14th Bishop of South Carolina. “His warm and steadfast counsel, which was sought by thousands around the larger Anglican world, will be deeply missed even as his aphorisms will be long remembered."
 
Bishop Salmon was the 19th Dean and President of Nashotah House from 2012-2014; He had served as the President of the Anglican Digest. He received the Order of the Palmetto, South Carolina’s highest civilian honor in 2007.
 
His pastoral ministry included tenures in numerous churches including All Saints, Chevy Chase, MD, 2010-2012; St. Michael and St George, St. Louis, MO 1978-1990; St. Paul’s, Fayettesville, AR 1967-1978; St. Andrew’s, Rogers, AR 1960-1963; St. James, Eureka Springs, AR 1960-1963; St. Thomas, Springdale, AR 1960-1963.
 
He was ordained to the diaconate June 24, 1960 and ordained to the priesthood March 1, 1961.
 
He received is Bachedlor of Arts degree from the University of the South; his Bachelor of Divinity from Virginia Theological Seminary; and his Doctor of Divnity degrees from Nashotah House, the University of the South and Virginia Theological Seminary.

Salmon married Louise Hack in 1972 and they had two children, Catherine and Edward III.
 
 “Happy are those who die in the Lord, even so says the Spirit, for they rest from their labors.”

The Diocese of South Carolina will hold a Memorial Service of Holy Eucharist for The Rt. Rev. Edward L. Salmon, Jr., XIII Bishop of South Carolina, Wednesday, July 6, 2016 at 4:00 p.m. at The Cathedral of St. Luke and St. Paul, 126 Coming Street, Charleston, SC. A light reception to follow in Wellbrock Hall

Clergy: White stoles

In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that memorials be made to: SPEAK, The Anglican Digest, 805 County Road 102, Eureka Springs, AR 72632-9705. Memorial gifts may be given online here.

The funeral for Bishop Salmon will be held at the Church of St. Michael and St. George in St. Louis, Missouri on Thursday, July 7 at 7 p.m.

I am the resurrection and the life, saith the Lord;
he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live;
and whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.
 
I know that my Redeemer liveth,
and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth;
and though this body be destroyed, yet shall I see God;
whom I shall see for myself and mine eyes shall behold,
and not as a stranger.
 
For none of us liveth to himself,
and no man dieth to himself.
For if we live, we live unto the Lord;
and if we die, we die unto the Lord.
Whether we live, therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s.
 
Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord;
even so saith the Spirit, for they rest from their labors.


Book of Common Prayer, The Burial of the Dead: Rite One
