Rev. Edward A. Ghuste, 75, of Morgantown was carried into the arms of his Heavenly Father on February 17, 2018 at his home. Ed was born in Morgantown on May 27, 1942 to the late Edward A. Ghuste Sr. and Mary Janes Faulknier Ghuste.

Ed retired from Consolidation Coal Company as a mechanic and electrician. Ed’s faith in the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and enjoyed spreading the Good News of the Gospel. He and his wife pastored Faith Apostolic Church of Brave, PA for 13 ½ years. During that time, through his ministry, was blessed to lead many to Christ. Currently, Ed was an associate minister at Riverside Apostolic Church. He deeply enjoyed the Tuesday morning prayer group who prayed for this community and needs that were called in. He reveled in the Lord being as close as the mention of His name.

He always enjoyed when the whole family gathered. Especially the back yard ball game and the laughter from the kitchen when everyone was together. He never missed an opportunity to tell us how great our God is, always having a scripture to meet every need.
