March 28, 2019, age 85. Loving father of Philip, Michael (Sunah), Douglas (Connie) and Gary (Laura) Hoeferkamp. Beloved husband of the late Janet (nee Spek) Hoeferkamp. Grandfather of Courtney, Ryan, Brandon, Shelby, Natalie, Luke, Alden and Hannah. Brother to the Rev. Harold Hoeferkamp, the late Anita Shafer and the late Rev. Robert Hoeferkamp.
Don was loving, providing and thoughtful. He loved language and often used puns. He enjoyed tennis, golf, card playing, walking, visiting with relatives, the Cincinnati Reds and supporting environmental causes.
Don devoted his life in service to others for the Lord Jesus Christ, first as a Lutheran pastor, then many years as Editor Extraordinaire with Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, works including My Devotions and Sunday School curriculum. He later wrote his own book: A Lighthearted Book of Common Errors.
We fondly remember his love for Christ, his family and friends. He blessed us many times over.
