|Let the memory of Will be with us forever|
Will was born on October 28, 1973, to Diane and Frank Fejeran in Chula Vista, California, and passed away on January 25, 2016, at the young age of 42.
He and his family lived in San Diego from 1973-1986, and then moved to Washington for a year and a half, returning to San Diego in 1988. Will joined the military in 1993 and served faithfully for 7 years in the U.S. Navy as an E.N.T. Head & Neck Specialist at the Balboa Naval Hospital, now known as the Naval Medical Center San Diego, and made many lasting friendships over the years.
Will and Brenda recommitted their lives soon after their marriage in July 1999 with Pastor Miles baptizing them. They followed Pastor Miles from Horizon Christian Fellowship to the Rock and Will became part of the worship ministry and choir early on, when the church met on the campus of SDSU, various other locations, then Ruffin Road. A career change with a lot of travel time caused him to step down from leading for a bit, but the desire to serve was always there. One Sunday at the new Point Loma campus, Pastor Miles saw Will sitting in the front row and pointed him out to the worship leader. Immediately after that, Will rejoined the choir, which led to him leading worship again. As a volunteer, he led at Point Loma, North County, and East County campuses, ministry gatherings and life group meetings, Miles Ahead events, Christian hip hop concerts, fellow Christian churches, and Toys for Joy gatherings.
Will’s powerful spirit of worship could not be contained. Through seeking God’s will and completing the Pastoral Support Team ministry, he knew he was called to apply for the Worship Pastor position at the Rock Church San Ysidro, where he faithfully served with a great group of volunteers since its opening in September 2014. His commitment to the ministry brought many from afar to experience for themselves the Spirit of God moving in such a powerful way. He was well known for his bear hugs, encouraging words, and big heart.
Will is survived by his wife, Brenda, of nearly 17 years, daughter Desiree, son Francisco, daughter Christiana, son Israel; parents Frank and Diane Fejeran; sister Jessica and her husband Dre Phillips and their three children Tomas, Marwan, and Najisa; maternal grandmother Maria Mercado; several Aunts and Uncles, Cousins, In-laws, Nieces and Nephews, and hundreds of friends. Although there is a void here on earth with Will gone, we rejoice in knowing that he touched many lives so his legacy will live on. Be encouraged, fam!
I miss your voice, creativity, friendship, and loyalty more than words can ever express.. Your talent and creativity was crystal clear to most. However to some perhaps underrated. For those of us who knew you and had the pleasure of working with you, we will never forget you, your talent, your skills, your wisdom, your friendship, or your contributions as a man of God. Although our friendship was short lived, I thank God for allocating some time for me to know you, work with you, and learn from you. You were an amazing, talented, creative, and very giving human being. Moreover, you were my friend. In my heavy heart, you will always be...
Your brother in Christ,
"We love and miss you Will and know that you were truly committed to the Lords Word. You are and will always be an inspiration to our family."
