He was a Research Physician at Shriners Hospitals for Children in Galveston.

“It is with deep regret and great sorrow that we announce the sudden passing away of David Heward-Mills, after a short illness. David was the first son of our Founder and Presiding Bishop”, the church announced.

Dag Heward-Mills broke his silence on his son’s death while delivering a sermon at his church on Sunday, April 17, 2022.

In a sermon titled, ‘The grave is not the end’, Dag opened up about how he feels about his son’s passing. He told his congregants on Sunday that the death of David has created a “funny environment” for the entire family.

“My son David just passed away. It spoils everything. You ask me am I sad? If you had a son who died, will you be sad? You should ask yourself that question. It spoils everything. It brings a funny environment and it makes nonsense of everything. We always try to wish it further and further away but that is how it is.”
