Remembering Dr. Eddie Groover ’67, Chancellor Emeritus

Dr. Eddie Groover ’67, chancellor emeritus, passed away on July 3 after an extended illness. All who knew him can attest to Dr. Groover’s kindness, intelligence and generosity. His knowledge of the Restoration Movement, including the founding of this University, was unparalleled. He filled many roles at Atlanta Christian College, serving as president from 1993-2006. He was supportive and encouraging as we transitioned to becoming Point University, serving for a time as chancellor and frequently attending special events on the West Point campus. He was a man of strong faith whose Christian commitment impacted generations of our students.

Dr. Groover was preceded in death by his wife, Belinda Lee Groover. He is survived by their sons, Greg and Michael, and their families.

Please join us in prayer for his family. Visitation will be held from 5-7 p.m. on Thursday, July 6 at Parrott Funeral Home in Fairburn, Georgia. The funeral will be held at 1 p.m. on Friday, July 7 at Southwest Christian Church in Newnan, Georgia.
