Obituary of Werner F. VanLooy
Werner F. VanLooy, beloved husband and father went home to glory at age 80 on August, 27 2019.
His early years were spent in New Jersey, but he moved to Jefferson in 1976. Werner took over the pastorate at Calvary Full Gospel Fellowship Church in 1977 and was faithful to his calling until retiring in December of 2018.
Werner or “Van” was a multi-talented man, able to fix or repair anything. He could build a house or a jewelry box. He loved the ocean, sailing and deep-sea fishing. His love was as deep as the ocean and he cared for all. Always a man of his word. His greatest passion was teaching people the Word and love of God and to help them grow in the knowledge of his Savior. Werner was a man of great strength not only in his body and hands, but in his Faith
Werner was predeceased by his mother: Elsie Erk; father: Felix VanLooy; and first wife: Christine VanLooy.
