Pastor Ogorry passed away in Port-Harcourt on Tuesday February 16, three days after his birthday on February 9,2021.
It was learnt that the clergy whose wife, Tonyemieba Essa-Ogorry (Nee Amachree) who was popularly known as Pastor Tee,also died February 16,2020,flew into Port-Harcourt from Lagos to cement the said wedding but had to retire to his office because of some undisclosed health issues when the couple didn’t keep to time.
Pastor Tee’s one year memorial thanksgiving service was held on Sunday.
He left behind a son who is still in secondary school and a host of relatives.
His passing has however, thrown the Christian community in the State into deep mourning.
