February 4, 2017

Fr. Edmund (William) Henkels died on January 27, 2016, age 92 after five years in a nearby nursing home. He joined the community in 1952 and with his engineering degree and naval lab work experience soon became a key member of the Abbey School’s math and science department. He initiated the installation of a HP mainframe computer and computer programing to the curriculum before many other schools had one. He was a dedicated supporter of the school’s athletic teams. After fifty years he had to retire from teaching and other school activities for health reasons. His funeral on Saturday, February 4 was well attended by alumni, their parents and friends, also by his niece Mary Rhiner from Dubuque, Iowa. May he rest now in the peace of Christ.
