It is our painful task to announce the death of Duane L. Slager, 51, a member of our church family. He is survived by his loving wife, Debbie Slager of Beaver Dam; sons, Kevin (Tania) Blank of Port Washington, and Jonathon Slager of Beaver Dam; brothers and sisters, Don Slager, Dick (Sherri) Slager, and Dave (Carrie) Slager, all of Beaver Dam, Dan (Dottie) Slager of Waupun, and Evonne (Dave) Kooiman of Brandon; many other special relatives and friends to whom we extend our most sincere sympathy.
Duane enjoyed cooking — especially making desserts — and many friends and family would reap the benefits. He grew raspberries and would often be found picking them. He loved playing games with family – especially Rook – and enjoyed playing volleyball. Duane had a deep love for God and family.
We can only remind his grieving family and friends of the comforting words of our Lord: “Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms …” (John 14:1-2, NIV).
Visitation will be at Faith Community Christian Church, 401 Stone St., Beaver Dam, on Tuesday, July 29, 2014, from 10 a.m. to noon. The funeral service will follow at the church on Tuesday at noon with the Rev. Dave Dykstra officiating. Burial will be at Highland Memory Gardens, town of Trenton, Dodge County, Wis.
Our Church Council will meet on Wednesday July 16th at 6:30 pm. (Jerry V. has snacks & devotion.)
Everyone is invited to join us Wednesday evening July 2 at 6:30 for our VBS Evening Program.
There will be music, skits, puppets and FUN! This Monday there were 50 eager faces greeting us during the opening of our VBS. By Tuesday our numbers increased to 60 busy, happy kids. If past experience proves true – we will see even more kids on Wednesday! VBS runs from 11:50 to 2:50 each day and every child gets a hot lunch!
