In an e-mail sent to their listeners, Family Radio has confirmed earlier reports that group founder Harold Camping passed away on Sunday, December 15.
Yesterday, Sunday, December 15th, at around 5:30 p.m., Harold Camping passed on to glory and is now rejoicing with his beloved Savior!
On Saturday, November 30th, Mr. Camping sustained a fall in his home, and he was not able to recover from his injuries. He passed away peacefully in his home, with his family at his side. We know that each of us remain in God’s hand, and God is the One who knows our appointed time to leave our earthly body behind.
We are so grateful to God for Brother Camping’s dedication to Family Radio and for his lifetime of service to God. We are thankful to know that Family Radio is God’s ministry, and will continue to be in God’s care and keeping.
Please remember the Camping family in your prayers, in particular, Mrs. Camping, Mr. Camping’s wife of over seventy-one years. May God sustain her in her loss.
Camping is best known for his multiple end of the world prophecies; most recently for May and October 21, 2011. Brother Camping as he was known to his parishioners, launched Family Radio in 1959 with KEAR San Francisco. Following the failed predictions, the group has begun selling off assets to stay afloat including its prime commercial FM assets in New York, Philadelphia, and Annapolis, MD.
