He came to know the Lord, Jesus Christ, in the early 1980’s and dedicated the rest of his life to serving his Lord. He was known for his big smile, booming laugh and ever present willingness to help a brother or sister in need, no questions asked – he never met a stranger.

(John) Koelling and the biggest champion and cheerleader to his seven grandchildren, Sarah (Zach)
Evans, Keith (Jennifer) Laneman, Nick (Amanda) Owens, Brian (Ashlee) Laneman, Matthew (Lizzy)
Owens, Hayleigh and Cassie Koelling as well as his 10 great-grandchildren.
He is also survived by one sister, Barbara Grau, as well as many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by two brothers, William and Joseph and two sisters, Winetta Grimm and Mary Jane Vaught.
