May Bishops Stephen Jecko and Frederick Putnam Rest in Peace

From Episcopal Life:

Bishop Stephen Hays Jecko, 67, and Bishop Frederick Warren Putnam, 89, both died on June 7.

Jecko was the retired bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Florida and had been serving the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas as an assisting bishop.

Funeral arrangements for Jecko are pending in Dallas, Texas, where he was acting as assisting bishop of the diocese.

Putnam was the retired Bishop Suffragan of Oklahoma and the retired Bishop of Navajoland. Putnam, who was ordained in the Episcopal Diocese of Minnesota, had been an assisting bishop to both Robert Anderson and James Jelinek, the seventh and eighth bishops of Minnesota.

A memorial service for Putnam, who died ten days before his 90th birthday, is set for 11 a.m. June 12 at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church in Edina, Minnesota...
Rest eternal grant to them, O Lord:
And let light perpetual shine upon them.

May their souls, and the souls of all the departed,
through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
