Groomsman Passed Away

One of our groomsmen (my FH’s cousin) passed away since our engagement. I am typing up programs and want to include him, but I’m wondering how I should refer to him since he won’t be here with us. I could use some ideas, thank you.

    I agree, "The Late John Smith" is a good way, or something like a caption with "Here in Spirit" and list his name. That's what we did for our grandparents.

    I love that, "Groomsman in Spirit John Doe".

    Agreed that sounds a little more sentimental.

    We did the following quote on our programs & then listed the names below.

    In Remembrance

    In our time of joy on this special day, we fondly remember our loved ones who are no longer with us. We are saddened by their absence, but are comforted in knowing that they are forever in our hearts and memories.

    Thanks everyone, on the program I listed him as a groomsman with “The Late” in front of his name. At the reception we will have a seat for him with a little memorial.
