An official cause of death has not been announced yet. However, according to social media posts, Slavens had been in the hospital recently battling COVID-19.
An earlier post on Friday asked for a miracle. And that “God is truly in control.”
“Today was a day I never thought would happen,” his daughter Hannah Skidmore said in a Facebook post. “Today I know my Dad’s in Heaven and at peace and rest from all [the] pain his body went through. It’s hard to know why God puts us in a situation like this, but I know we are at peace knowing Dad is healthy now and enjoying his heavenly life. We were able to go say our goodbyes beforehand and hug him. He may not have been able to squeeze our hands, but I know he heard us. The doctor said he was declining very rapidly after we left and while on life support, his body just couldn’t take it anymore. I believe God knew it was time and Dad was at peace to let go.
“I know my Dad did everything possible in this world and left the impact that God called him to leave. I love you Dad. You’re my best friend and I’m so blessed to have you as my father. Now, you’re in the best hands in the world and living the life you deserve. Thank you everyone for the prayers I believe each one of us became stronger in our faith through this and it was a wake-up call for many. This battle is in God’s hands and he has a plan for each of us, it’s hard to understand now but blessings will never end and we will grow in our faith and be better Christians through it. I’m thankful you got to check off walking me down the aisle and making sure you did everything for me and Kaleb to never have to worry about where the future takes us. Love your baby girl.”
