EASTAMPTON TWP. , NJ (WTXF)- - A South Jersey community is mourning the loss of a local pastor as his wife continues to fight for her life.
This past Sunday, Larry and Leslie House were riding on their motorcycle when they were involved with a crash with another vehicle.
Larry, 57, was killed in the crash, and his wife Leslie continues to fight for her life and remains in critical condition.
Larry House was a beloved pastor at the Celebration Community Church in Bordentown, New Jersey. The church took to their Facebook page to remember Larry and send love and prayers to both he, Leslie, and their family.
The church writes, "He and his wife, Leslie, have served Celebration Community Church as Home Group Leaders, Youth Ministry Leaders and Marriage Counselors over the years. Larry was more than just a pastor, he was an example of a great husband, loving father, brother, faithful friend and mighty man of God."
Several prayer services have been organized for the house family on the church's Facebook page, and send their prayers to Larry and Leslie's four daughters and son in laws, and six grandchildren.
The investigation is ongoing.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to help the House family with any needs they may come across in the coming months.
