NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The community came together on Saturday to help beloved Reverend Enoch Fuzz and celebrate his 65th birthday.

The party for Fuzz, a long-time community activist and pastor of the Corinthian Missionary Baptist Church, was hosted at the newly restored Elliston Place Soda Shop, which also served a fundraiser to help him pay for lung cancer treatments.

Fuzz thanked everyone for attending and said he is looking forward to the future.

"Next year at this time, we won't have these masks," he said. "We are going to make it. All we need are the people that we have right here."

Mayor Cooper and interim Metro Police Chief John Drake were among the party-goers. They each shared photos with Fuzz and praised his contributions to the community.

He has been battling lung cancer since May.
