June 20, 1931 - October 15, 2021
Mr. Robert Leslie Poffenroth of Nanton, Alberta passed away at the Foothills Medical Centre on October 15, 2021 at the age of 90. Poffenroth, Robert Leslie, “Bob”, “Rob”, age 90 On the evening of Friday October 15, 2021, Bob’s time on Earth was complete, and he left us to be with his Heavenly Father. Waiting for Bob in heaven are his parents, Conrad and Matilda (Gerlitz) Poffenroth, along with his brother Alfred, and sister Doris. He is survived by his brother David. Bob’s wife of 68 years, and the love of his life, Mary, remains with us to remember him. With her are their four children, Ralph, Mitch, Randy, and Brenda, and their spouses, as well as 9 grandchildren, 19 great grandchildren, and 1 great great grandchild. Throughout his entire life, Bob spent his mornings and evenings in devotion, and on his knees in prayer. When his knees struggled, the prayers did not. Bob’s days were spent in the fields, dedicated to the farm, so that he could continue providing a roof over his family’s heads, and food on their table. Bob was a cornerstone of the Nanton Baptist Church, with his unwavering faith and love for God as an anchor, lighting the way for so many. He was a pillar of the community, playing vital roles on boards and institutions, lending strength and consistency when it was needed most. The beautiful legacy of Bob’s life will be strength, fortitude, and faith in God. This will continue to ripple through the countless lives that he touched, and his memory will live on through those who knew and loved him. A Funeral service will be held on Tuesday, October 26th at 2:00 p.m. at the Nanton Baptist Church.
