March 18, 1933 – October 27, 2023

Bernhard (Ben) Andres, age 90, of Steinbach took off to heaven with JESUS on October 27, 2023 following a brief illness. He was surrounded by loved ones at Rest Haven Care Home.

Mourning his loss are: his five sons, five daughters, twenty-three grandchildren, forty-two great-grandchildren and two-great-great grandchildren.

He is also survived by two sisters and more than 20 foster children.

He was predeceased by his Parents John and Maria Andres, his wife Luella Hamm, four brothers, five sisters, and one great-granddaughter.

Ben was born on March 18, 1933 in Hepburn, Saskatchewan. He was considered a slow learner and showed it in his grades. His Grade 6 Teacher encouraged him to seek the LORD JESUS CHRIST! He did and his grades shot up! Ben would do his best to love & obey his LORD!

He worked as an electrician for Penner Electric, pastored a church in Pelly, SK and sold Watkins products, did nickel mining and private contracting in Thompson, did farming and Mr. Fixit in the Ethelbert & Gilbert Plains areas, was Maintenance man at Providence College, back to Ethelbert for awhile and then retired in Steinbach. In all of these places, Ben found groups of Believers to fellowship with, led his Family in daily Bible reading & prayer, taught his Kids to love the LORD and work hard & smart and helped many People in their time of need! Now Ben gets to be with JESUS forever!

The funeral service for Ben will be held on Friday, November 3, 2023 at 10:00 a.m. at Birchwood Funeral Chapel, Steinbach, MB., with viewing one hour prior to the service.
