Rolf Herman Koenig
June 20, 1934 – April 02, 2018
On Easter Monday April 2, 2018, surrounded by his loving family, Rolf Koenig, a precious husband, dad, Opa, Great Opa, brother and friend, walked out of his worn out earthly body and stepped into a brand new one.
Rolf was a man of deep spiritual conviction and took servitude to a level that would be hard to surpass. Quiet and unassuming, but uncompromising when it came to truth, integrity and honesty, Rolf rarely spoke about his role as a leader of a small congregation or about times that he would go way out of his way to assist and/or pray for somebody. He was a prayer warrior and when he prayed we knew God was going to answer.
Fiercely loyal and proud of his wife and children, Rolf never wavered in his role as the leader of his home. He laughed a lot, loved to tease his wife / kids and though he was not rich in earthly goods he always found a way to surprise them by taking them on holidays, buying them gifts and ensuring that EVERYBODY ate well at his table.
Rolf’s life left a big hole in the fabric of his family and many, many other’s lives when he stepped away, but that hole holds thousands of memories that many will recall for many years to come.
Rolf leaves behind a precious wife, Hilde Koenig (nee Klar), three daughters, Ruth, Esther( Dave) and Lydia (David) and four sons David (Mary), Daniel (Rhonda), Dallas (Michelle) and Jonathan , his precious sister’s Brunhilda ( Alex), Helga (Rudi), brother Manfred ( Christa)along with many nephews and nieces.
He will also be dearly missed by his eighteen grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren.
We are looking forward to that most glorious day when we will be reunited to spend eternity together. Come soon Lord Jesus!

To my dear sweet Koenig family whom I love with all my heart:
Thinking of you and praying for you at this difficult time in your life. Praying for strength for each of you and asking for comfort and peace as only He can give. Looking forward to that glad reunion day when we shall all be together, no more parting then. Keep pressing on my friends, we’re almost home.”He shall rise hallelujah he shall rise” All my love and prayers to you, Shawna Cook
God bless Hilde and all the family. David (Mary), Danny (Rhonda), Dal (Michelle), Ruth, Esther (Dave), Lydia (Dave) and Jonathan. May the Presence of the Lord be your comfort. Our precious brother will be missed.
The front-line soldiers are quietly passing the torch to the next generation and going on to their reward. My memories of Bro Rolf go way back to my early childhood. He will be remembered time and again in the years to come just as has already been said. I say ‘goodbye’ to our brother for now, but there surely is another day of greeting ahead. My condolences to all the Koenig family during this time of sadness; not sadness for bro. Rolf because he’s in a much better place, but sadness for those of us who remain to mourn his absence. May that same one who held our brother safe in the palm of his hand these many years also be with the family left behind to wait for that day. God be with you all.
