Dr. Gerhard H. Morenings, 92, of Bristol, Virginia/Naples Florida, passed away on Thursday, September 9, 2021, at his home in Naples Florida.
He was born on March 25, 1929, in Memel, East Prussia to Martin and Marta Morenings and enjoyed a wonderful early childhood near the shores of the Baltic Sea with his brother Heinz, and sisters Ruth, Christel, and Gerda.
Gerhard lived a vibrant life full of happiness, faith, and also hardship; surviving WW2, serving as a medical missionary deep in the Amazon Rainforest, starting a new life in the United States with his wife and children, healing patients as a chiropractor, and losing many of those very dear to his heart along the way. He used each of his many life experiences to spread love, kindness, wisdom, and the word of God to everyone he met.
Please visit his blog which can be accessed at www.thegodoflove.org to explore the fruits of 70+ years of study and reflection that was such an important part of the legacy he desired to leave and share with all.
