Minister Leon A. Pryor was born in Villa Ridge, Illinois May 2, 1936.  He was the fifth child of seven children born to Deacon John and Mother Bessie Woolfolk Pryor.  Bro. Pryor accepted Christ at an early age.


He graduated from Douglas High School in Mounds, Illinois in 1955.  He came to Gary and was soon employed at Inland Steel, East Chicago, Indiana.


Bro. Pryor was a member of Saints Home Church of God In Christ under the pastorage of Bishop C.E. Bennett.  He was united in Holy Matrimony to Sister Thelma Nunn, June 10, 1972.  To this union was born one daughter, Telon Pryor.


His trust and love for God kept him faithful.  He was a dedicated Sunday school teacher.  He was appointed a Deacon by the late Bishop Wm. O. Blakely.


Bro. Pryor served God to the end as the church secretary and treasurer.


In 1994 Minister Pryor accepted the Lord's call to preach the Gospel.  On just last Sunday at the men's day service, he preached, sang and prayed and prophesied under the anointing of the Holy Ghost.  His sermon was taken from Acts 8:26 - 36.  "God always has a man to do the will of God: -anointed song given by God"He's coming soon."


Minister Pryor's memory will be cherished by a fond host of relatives, friends and Saints Home Family.


I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.  Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that dany and not to me ony, but unto all them also that love his appearing.  

               II Timothy 4: 7-8
