TYACK, Llewelyn Newton 1876 - 1951 B.Sc.

Obituary from the Minutes of the Methodist Conference 1952, page 128

A son of the manse, was born at Leeds in 1867, and was educated at Woodhouse Grove and Kingswood.

After a short business career he became Lecturer in Physics at University College, Bristol. As time wont on, he felt a strong call to the ministry, and in 1902 offered himself as a candidate.

Although he was thirty-five years of age and already married, his qualifications were so high that Conference immediately accepted him and sent him straight into circuit work at Holyhead.

His gracious and helpful ministry fully justified this unusual step, and he was deeply beloved in all his circuits.

He was of a very sensitive nature, which made him quick in response to the needs and troubles of those who came to him with their sorrows.
His ready wit made him a most delightful companion, as it was always kindly and came from a well-stored mind.

He took a great interest in astronomy, a subject on which he often lectured with much skill.

His preaching was of a high order, being informed by rich Christian experience and wide culture. His home life was singularly gracious and happy, and he and his wife created in their manse an atmosphere of peace and happiness which it was always a joy to share.

He retired to Ealing in 1930, where he continued for many years to preach most acceptably, and was also greatly esteemed as a class leader.

He passed away peacefully on 27th October 1951, loved and honoured by all who knew him, in his eighty-fourth year and the forty-ninth of his ministry.
