Wolfhard Touchard

June 30, 1935 — February 5, 2023

Wolfhard Touchard, 87, of Berrien Springs, fell asleep in Jesus on February 5, 2023 after a brief illness.

Wolfhard was born June 30, 1935 to Wilhelm and Elsa (Zanke) Touchard in Stuttgart, Germany. He attended Bismarck Schule in Nurnberg, Schulzentrum Marienhohe in Darmstadt, Germany, and then moved to America to attend Atlantic Union College and Syracuse University, where he graduated with a Masters in Library Science.

Wolfhard worked as a Librarian at Shenandoah Valley Academy; Middle East University in Beirut, Lebanon; University of Eastern Africa Baraton in Kenya, East Africa; and Andrews University.

After retirement he enjoyed spending time with family and friends, yardwork, sharing his faith and knowledge on spiritual gifts, and his music.

Wolfhard was predeceased by his wife, Irene Touchard; his parents; and his sister, Eva Euerl.
