Jerold (Jerry) Pomp, 85, of Tenstrike, died on Sunday, April 25, 2004, at North Country Regional Hospital in Bemidji. A memorial service was at the Tenstrike Community Church. Burial was in the Evergreen Cemetery in Northern Township.

He was born on Feb. 19, 1919, to Eugene and Dieka (Hulsman) Pomp in Coopersville, Mich. After completing the eighth grade, he quit school to help out on the farm. He was the youngest of six children. He later worked in Holland, Mich., at a rusk factory. He was drafted and entered the service for World War II in April of 1942.

He was in the Army Air Corps with the 347th squadron of the 99th bomb group and served in the European Theater. He became good friends with the chaplain and was asked to help out occasionally. He saw a great need for relying on the Lord for protection and to see him and others through hard times. It was during this time that he decided he would like to be a pastor. After being discharged, he finished high school and went to Hope College in Holland. He married Joyce Nyenhuis on Aug. 1, 1950, in Holland. He attended Western Seminary in Holland and Presbyterian Seminary in Austin, Texas. The couple pastored 25 years at several churches including Davis, S.D.; Edgerton, Minn.; Amherst, S.D.; and Volga, S.D. They moved to Tenstrike in 1977. The couple continued using their spiritual wisdom and gifts ministering at Tenstrike Community Church and in the community. They were very active in marriage and family counseling and visitation to the sick and elderly. His passion in life was to bring the lost to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

He enjoyed being with family and enjoyed singing, fishing, gardening, hunting, and walking with family members.

He is survived by his wife of Tenstrike; sons, Steve (Joyce), Dave (Joan), both of Tenstrike and Tim (Cathy) of Eveleth, Minn.; daughters, Chris (Dan) Woodward of Tenstrike, Julie (Bob) Bush of Bemidji and 14 grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Justin; and sisters, Dorothy, Henrietta, Delia and Netta.
