Lawrence Wilfred Enns

April 21, 1929 - July 3, 2021

Tribute

 

Dad was born on April 21, 1929 in Warman, Saskatchewan.  He attended Garthland School. He obtained his contractor certification and learned this trade from his uncle, Peter Ens, who built the second home on the farm at Garthland, SK. He completed his welding certification and worked at Dominion Bridge and Standard Iron in Edmonton for several years. He was a contractor by trade and enjoyed building houses and trailers for others. He was so proud of the trailer that he built for his parents. Dad recalled his grandpa, Gerhard Enns, sharing his faith with him and his siblings and at the age of 21, he gave his life to Christ while on the Port Mann Bridge in BC. He faithfully followed the Lord for the rest of his life and made many contributions to all the churches he attended over the years. He married Isabel Dunan on August 10, 1963, in Lacadena, SK and they lived in Kerrobert, SK where he built a home for his family and a number of homes for other families in this community. He really enjoyed putting together the candy bags for the Sunday school children who received this gift after each Christmas production at the Kerrobert Full Gospel Church. He moved to Surrey, BC in the fall of 1979 and began N’s construction. He built several homes in the area including two homes for this family and a home for his friends, Lorne and Pearl Reid in Sicamous, BC. He moved to Agassiz, BC and entered into semi-retirement by building furniture in his garage for neighbours and the church. He was proud of the pulpits he made for various churches over the years. He was mechanically minded and could fix vehicles and various household machines and always helped his family with any projects or problems of this nature. Dad loved to visit with people and liked to tease others, especially when they would tease him back. He enjoyed fishing and often happily reminisced about his fishing trip to the Northwest Territories with Perry Thun. He watched many games of baseball on TV and loved to cheer for the Toronto Blue Jays, seeing them play live in Seattle, WA. He traveled to Israel, Hong Kong, Mexico, and Disneyland, USA. He loved sharing his faith and the importance of being born again and listening to the Holy Spirit throughout a person’s life. He often said we are all “saved to serve”. We long to keep his heart of faithfulness in his walk with Jesus alive in our hearts and keep our precious memories of his tender love and care for his ‘stunning’ wife, three daughters, and four grandchildren.

We love you so much, Dad/Grandpa!
