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.
