Adolph accepted Jesus as Saviour at 11. After leaving the family farm, he became a farmhand in Grassy Lake, Alta., a nurse’s aid at Moose Jaw (Sask.) Training School and a store clerk in Coaldale, Alta. Sensing God’s call to full-time church ministry, he obtained a BRE from MB Bible College, Winnipeg, and pastored in Pierceland, Sask.; Waldheim, Sask.; Boissevain, Man.; and Lashburn, Sask. In Vancouver, he worked with seniors in managerial chaplain roles, while being active in Killarney Park Church. In 1992, Adolph and Hilda retired to Abbotsford, B.C. With his gifts of service and evangelism, he counselled at camp in his youth, sang in quartets and choirs, served on committees, led a Sunday school mission and did care home visitation. Adolph was hardworking and practical. In his final years, when words failed, his strong humming of hymns was an expression of the hope within.
