Rev. John G. Schettenheim

Early on Palm/Passion Sunday evening, April 9, 2006, the Rev. John G. Schettenhelm of Orange, CT, stopped to turn into the driveway to his home on his 1989 Harley Davidson and was hit from behind by a car. He was pronounced dead at the hospital. He is survived by his wife Rachael and their 13 year old twin sons, Adam and Luke. More than 35 Missouri Synod pastors, plus clergy from other churches attended the packed Holy Communion service, held at Holy Cross Lutheran in Trumbull to accomodate more people. John supported the Arthur Carl Piepkorn Center by loaning and donating copies of Una Sancta that he owned and in other ways. May he rest in peace and may light eternal shine upon him! 
Rachael has since donated all of John’s Una Sanctas and copies of the Concordia Theological Monthlly to the Center. Thanks to Rachael!
