Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • I am very honoured to be able to say that Art Wegner was my friend. For several years, I sat beside Art in the Immanuel Pentecostal Church Choir. Art taught me my colours. What are we singing next, Art?. I can't find the music.” “Di blau, di greun, di rosen.” (I know I am probably misspelling most of these words but what good is learning a new language if you can’t butcher it?) I learned about patience by watching Art (and Erna). When there was trouble, as church will sometimes provide, and I asked them, “Are you not upset by …”, Art would just smile and Erna would say in her kind and patient way, “Oh, no”. Art was among the group who, in Poland, during The War, had experienced the loss of freedom to worship God as they would have liked. They all agreed that, if they ever got that freedom back, they would all be in church every time there was a service. Art stuck to that promise. The Men’s Chorus (of the Chapel Brass Band at IPC), of which Art’s son, Norbert, was the leader, presented many wonderful and inspiring songs, of which one of my favourites was: May those who come behind us find us faithful, May the fire of our devotion light their way. May the footprints that we leave cause them to believe And the lives we live inspire them to obey. Art leaves behind four boys, all of whom are prize examples of mature Christian manhood. So, Art’s legacy as a Christian husband and father lives on in his sons and proves his quality as priest of his home. He was my friend and example. I will miss him greatly. I offer my sincere condolences to Erna, Ralph, Kurt, Oswald and Norbert. - Posted by: John Riddell (Friend) on: Nov 29, 2018

  • I will remember Arthur as a very kind man and also a great singer and player of brass instruments. It was always wonderful to see him play with his sons in the church. Rest in peace Arthur and watch over all of us. Give my love to all that have gone on before. Heartfelt condolences to the whole family and our prayers are with you all.
