Karl H. "Heiner" Liebig Obituary
Montville - Karl H. "Heiner" Liebig, 72, of Norwich New London Tpke, Uncasville, a well-known business owner and passionate Christian, was called home early Friday morning, July 5, 2013, to be with his Lord.

"To the Jew first..." Roman 1:16

On Aug. 31, 1940, he was born in Bremerhaven, Germany, the son of Adele Gesine (Liebig) Ufen and the late Karl Hermann Liebig. After serving with the German Merchant Marines he came to the United States having been sponsored to work at the former Butler Chevrolet in Norwich. Since 1974, he has owned and operated Heiner's Auto Body Shop in Uncasville.

Having been born during World War II and after witnessing the devastation of the Holocaust, Mr. Leibig felt a close association and love for the Jewish People. In 1975, he became a member of the Lake Ponds Baptist Church in Waterford and has traveled the world preaching the Gospel. He has traveled on countless mission trips including visits to Russia, Israel and Germany. Just recently, Mr. Liebig received a Letter of Gratitude from Israeli Prime Minister's Bureau for his "prayers and kind words of encouragement" for President Netanyahu.

For the past 25 years he has a held a weekly Friday night Bible Study inside his home chapel, which has become known as The Jewish Hour. His support for President Carter's presidential campaign earned him an invitation to the inauguration in recognition of his hard work campaigning for his election.

He has been the loving husband to Tina (Bollenbach) Liebig for 30 years; and will be greatly missed by his children, Michael, Erik, James, Paul, Philip, Timothy, Diana, Heidi, Kristina, Rachel, Sara-Joy, Charity, Julia-Hope, and Moriah; 19 grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; brother, Johann Liebig; sister, Gerda (Liebig) Sadowski; five nieces and two nephews.

His funeral service will be held at 1 p.m. Tuesday, July 9, at the Lakes Pond Baptist Church, 1144 Hartford Road, Waterford. Burial will follow in Comstock Cemetery. There are no calling hours.

Please make a donation to "The Jewish Hour" care of Lake Ponds Baptist Church in his memory.

The Woyasz & Son Funeral Home, 11 Jerome Road, is in charge of arrangements.
