Dr. Norman Rempel

Posted on 20 October 2011 by Mel Friesen

1967, “Norman David Rempel, 65, of Fresno, CA died Saturday, October 15, 2011. He was a college administrator and professor. Memorial: 10:30 a.m. Friday at Mennonite Brethren Biblical Seminary. Arrangements: Clovis Funeral Chapel.” – Fresno Bee
Obituary will be added later. Dr. Rempel taught for 16 years at Grace University. He left Grace in 1988 to accept an administrative position at Fresno Pacific University in California. He joined the Grace Board of Trustees in 2002, resigning in 2004 when he was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.
The following paragraph is from his blog about life with MS:
“So, Norm, what are you saying? Are you saying that you are ready to die? Is that what you’re really saying? Let’s make it real, now. OK?”
Yes, I’m ready to go. I’ve always been in the arms of our Savior, but this now feels real. I’ve had a life that was perfect for me. I loved teaching and I loved being an administrator at two Christian universities. And I couldn’t have chosen something more fitting for me. I have been blessed with a great match between desire and choice. And that’s only one aspect. I’m so blessed to have found my Sweetheart of 44 years and have 3 children who we love deeply, and they in turn do the same for us. And our church life and university life have given us such a wonderful set of people to work with. So when I say I am grateful, I have every reason to really, really mean it.
