ABINGDON, Va. (WJHL) — A local youth group leader who had been battling COVID-19 for more than three months died at 48 years old.
Holston Valley Baptist Church said in a post that Sam Doane died on Tuesday, July 27.
Two weeks ago, the community had circled together in prayer in hopes of Doane’s healing and recovery.
He leaves behind a wife, Meredith, and son, Peyton.
The entire family had been diagnosed with COVID-19 at the same time, but Doane’s condition had turned critical.
His church family asks the community to keep Meredith and Peyton in their prayers.
