Rev. John K. Reimer went to be with his Lord on Thursday, Nov. 3, 2016, at the age of 97, at Steinbach Bethesda Hospital only a few miles from where his life began.

John was born on Feb. 18, 1919, to Isaac W and Margaretha (Kroeker) Reimer, the 11th of 17 children. His childhood and youth were spent working hard on the family farm. As a young man he dedicated his life to serving God and attended Steinbach Bible Institute in preparation for a lifetime of ministry.

John married Leona Reimer on Oct. 8, 1945. Together they served the Lord in various places in Canada as well as internationally.

John will be lovingly remembered by his children: David (Katharine) Reimer, Jonathan (Kalie) Reimer, Molly, Russell (Amber) Reimer, Emmett, Natalie (Scott) Reimer Anderson, Seth, Max; Lucille (Jim) Pfeifer, Dustin (Kaylee) Pfeifer, Camdyn, Rory, Megan (Jeff) Lundy, Lennon, Lincoln; Rod (Debbie) Reimer, Caleb, Josh and Jael; Arvella (Mike) Lucas, Matt and David Lucas; Jennifer Reimer, Ella, Huelwen, Bridget Hainsworth, Dylan Reimer. He is also survived by one sister, Elma Wiebe, of Lethbridge, Alta., and two sisters-in-law, Edna Reimer and Elsie Reimer.

John was predeceased by his beloved wife Leona and his son Samuel Wayne.

The family wishes to acknowledge the excellent care given to our dad by the staff at Cedarwood Apartments, his last place of residence. We wish to thank the medical staff at Steinbach Bethesda Hospital.
