S. Truett Cathy founder of Chick-fil-A and an outstanding Georgia Baptist went home to be with the Lord on Monday, September 8, 2014. Truett will long be remembered for taking strong Christian stands in the marketplace including keep the Lord’s day as a day of rest and worship for all Chick-fil-A employees and influencing his company’s more recent stand honoring the sanctity of marriage between one man and one woman. It would be difficult to measure the positive impact that Truett Cathy has had upon young people through his generous scholarship programs that have assisted many in their desire to complete their college education. Georgia Baptists extend our prayers to the Cathy family as well as to all the Chick-fil-A family for the comfort and peace of the Lord.
