Bernie Boldt


Bernard (Bernie) Colin Boldt died Aug. 28, 2009. He was born Oct. 6, 1962 in Ontario to Edward and Margaret Boldt. He was raised at Kitchener MB Church and became a member in his early teens. He attended Eden Christian High School, Eastwood Collegiate in Kitchener, and graduated from Wilfred Laurier University with a BA. Upon graduation, he launched into a full-time business career while also engaged in youth ministry leadership at church. For 5 years, he entered full-time ministry with Young Life in St. Catharines, Ont. In 1990, he married Edith Edinger. They were living in Calgary when, 3 years ago, Bernie was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Undergoing surgeries in Calgary, treatments in Germany made possible by the generosity of friends, and prayer from hundreds of Christian friends, Bernie and Edith returned to the Kitchener-Waterloo area, knowing the end was approaching. Bernie had a passion for sports and travelling. His humour and fun-loving have put smiles on many faces, and his faith in, and love for, Jesus was the cornerstone of his life. Bernie is mourned by Edith; his parents Ed and Margaret Boldt; brother Bryan, sister Wendey (Ed) Deines; 2 nephews, 1 niece; mother-in-law Frieda Edinger; sister-in-law Petra Edinger.
