Erwin Gene Jandt

October 8, 1931 — September 3, 2023

Kirby

 

Erwin Gene Jandt, 91, of San Antonio, TX, entered into God’s kingdom on September 3, 2023. He was born October 8, 1931, to Onie and Erwin A. Jandt.

Erwin, a most loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather is survived by his wife, Bonnie Jandt; daughters, Mitzi Jandt-Everts & husband Tony Everts, and Pethrie Aldridge & husband Brad Aldridge; grandsons, Anthony Everts, Tyler Everts, and Caleb Aldridge, granddaughter Jessica Mitchell and husband Phil Mitchell; great grandson, Xavier Mitchell; and loving nieces and nephews.

After attending Edison High School in San Antonio, Erwin served his country in the United States Air Force for twenty years and is a decorated Vietnam War veteran.  He married his sweetheart, Bonnie, on April 14, 1954 and would have celebrated 70 years together this coming April.

After his military retirement, Erwin continued to serve in Law Enforcement for another twenty years. He was a Lieutenant in the Sheriff’s Department of Travis County and served as a Supervisor of Investigations in the Human Resource Department of San Antonio.

A devoted Christian, Erwin was ordained both as a Deacon and a Minister through Kirby Baptist Church where he served faithfully in many capacities including Outreach Director and Training Union Director. He attended countless Vacation Bible Schools, children and youth camps, and backyard Bible clubs as a sponsor.  He enjoyed bringing the Word of God through sermons when asked to preach, as well as serving as an evangelist for several revivals.

A man of many talents, his two favorite hobbies were fishing and bowling. He also did some wood-working, enjoyed camping and loved his Judson Rocket football!

Erwin’s legacy of service, through his love for God, his family, and people everywhere, will forever impact those who knew him. His selflessness, humor, and sweet spirit will always be remembered by those of us still waiting for that great reunion in Glory.
