Jack Koenig, 39

Jack Alan Koenig, 39-years-old, was born at home in Clearfield, Pa., and died at home in Denver with his immediate family at his side. He fought the effects of colon cancer from the time of the diagnosis in September 2015 to the end, Sept. 5, 2018.

Alan’s life pleasure was his volunteer ministry with Jehovah’s Witnesses. He enjoyed talking with folks in their homes, but particularly in the congregations with his spiritual family. He loved public speaking and gave many Bible discourses. He enjoyed instructing and counseling other congregation members in our meetings as to their public speaking as well.

His volunteer ministry took him, with his parents, to Clearfield, Pa.; Peru; Kemp, Texas; Ecuador, South America; South Fulton, Ky.; East Prairie, Mo.; Greensburg; and Wabash. He had many dear spiritual brothers and sisters in each of these locations.

Many remember him as the helpful, smiley young man who loved Jehovah’s creation, the woods, flowers, his honeybees, the library, books, the Bible and book learning. He developed an amazing pool of knowledge.

Alan has one sister, Dawn Holman, who with her husband, Carl Michael Holman, lives in Kokomo.

Alan made a good name for himself with his fellow man. But more importantly, with his God, Jehovah (Ecclesiastes 7:1). His family and his dear spiritual family look forward to seeing him soon in a resurrection on a cleansed earth (Psalm 37:10, 11, 29) where he will no longer suffer the ill effects of disease (Isaiah 33:24). Alan strove hard to apply God’s counsel at 1 Timothy 6:17-19. We are confident he has a firm hold on the real life. Alan, for the present, you will be sorely missed.
