Krueger, Myles Douglas, PhD, 68, of Amherst Shore, NS.
Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints. - Psalm 116:15
Died peacefully at the QEII Health Sciences Centre, Halifax on Friday, May 15th, 2020 with his beloved wife Sally (nee Fraser) and daughter Elisabeth Stewart (Steven) at his side. His death was truly a precious time of love and sharing, with Myles‘ eyes shining with his love for his family right up until the end. Vigil during this time was kept in New Brunswick, Quebec, and Ontario by his children Caitlin Dawe (Trevor), Alison Henderson (Joel) and William Krueger (Lisa) and grandchildren Gabrielle, Catalina, Clara, Tabitha, Gemma, Terry, Georgia and Maddie.
Myles grew up in Toronto before following his roots West, settling for a time in Edmonton and pursuing university studies, despite only having a grade 9 education. Myles began traveling annually to Hawaii, where in the late 1970s he met Bob and June Duffer. Through them, he discovered his faith and calling to serve Jesus Christ, thence embarking on a scholarly journey that would take him to Nova Scotia, Scotland, and Buffalo Lake, Alberta. Myles received his Doctor of Philosphy from the University of Aberdeen. He was ordained as a minister when he eventually settled at Amherst Shore, N.S., where he spent his time enjoying his grandchildren and ministering in seniors residences and the hospital.
While pursuing one of his three Masters degrees in theology and divinity at Acadia Divinity College, Myles worked in sales for a publisher. His future bride Sally was working in a small bookstore in Vancouver when Myles strolled through the door one day in 1990 to get an order. Their love story began then and continued for 30 years until he was taken home.
His life was not easy, with a very tough childhood and many health problems. But Myles strove in every aspect of life to be his best, and to look for the best in others. He encouraged his children to pursue their ambitions and was incredibly proud of each of them.
He is now at rest in the arms of his Heavenly Father, dressed in a Hawaiian shirt as blue as the waters off the coast of Maui.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Campbell’s Funeral Home, 98 Church Street, Amherst, NS, 902-667-9906.
Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, a celebration of life will be held at a later date.
Donations in memoriam can be made to the Andrew D. MacRae Centre for Christian Faith and Culture at Acadia Divinity College.
Online condolences and sharing of memories may be forwarded to the family via: www.campbellsamherst.ca or by visiting the funeral home Facebook page.
Aloha ke Akua.
