Volker Reuss of East Haven, Vt., went to be with the Lord on Jan. 15, 2019, at the UVM Medical Center in Burlington, Vt., after complications from a stroke, surrounded by love. He was 74.
Volker was born in Reutlingen, Germany on Oct. 19, 1944 to Margarete Reuss.
After surviving WWII, they came to the U.S. in 1958, along with his sister Brigitte. Volker didn’t like school so he enlisted in the Army in 1964, and like many others, served in Vietnam. He was later nationalized as a U.S. citizen in Connecticut, and continued to serve as a Sgt./E5 military police officer in different parts of the world. He retired from active duty in 1984, but continued serving in VA hospitals as a security officer for several years.
He was predeceased by his mother, Margarete (Reuss) Church. He is survived by his sister, Brigitte Lade and her husband Helmet of Cape Coral, Florida, and his niece Helga Darst and two nephews Harry and Tim Lade and their families.
Volker loved his ferrets, cats and the New England Patriots! He came to the Lord later in his life and attended Woodsville Grace Assembly of God in Woodsville, N.H. faithfully.
A memorial service will be held at the Lyndon Full Gospel A/G (the Tom Breslin Center upstairs) in Lyndonville, Vt. on Thursday, Feb. 21, 2019, at 6:30 p.m.
