As a life long member of First Mennonite Church, Abe was baptized on May 28, 1939 and married there on April 4, 1945 to Lorraine (Radtke). He served the church several times as a Trustee. He enjoyed sharing the story of Jesus, particularly to his grandchildren. Abe loved horses but farming was his passion. He farmed for himself in the area until moving into town in the early 1970's. He continued to farm, for his son Verlo, for many years. In addition, he worked as a welder for Balzer's Manufacturing.

Scott & family, seven grandchildren, ten great-grandchildren, one great-great-grandchild, and many nieces, nephews, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his sister Martha Pankratz.
