Our Savior, Jesus Christ, has destroyed death and brought life and immortality to light through the Gospel.
Let us remember with thanksgiving what God had done through his servant, Heinz Robert Leimenstoll.
Heinz Robert Leimenstoll was born in Germany on March 6, 1932 to Robert and Emma Leimenstoll. He was reborn as a child of God in the waters of Holy Baptism on the 30th day of March.
On Judica Sunday, 1946, he was confirmed in the Christian faith and was fed the life-giving body and blood of Jesus.
He was united in holy marriage to Helga Schindler on Aug. 29, 1956 and blessed with 56 years of married life together. God also blessed them with the gift of children: Bernd (Cindy), Uwe (Carolynne), and Tom (Angela).
On Aug. 12, 2012, God called Heinz home to Heaven.
He is survived by his wife, Helga; sons, Bernd (Cindy), Uwe (Carolynne), and Tom (Angela); grandchildren, Christopher, Luke, Chad, Robert, and Cayla; brother-in-law, Albert and family; as well as several cousins in Germany.
Heinz was predeceased by his parents, Robert and Emma; and granddaughter, Tera.
