The National Farmers Union sends condolences to the Pfenning family

The National Farmers Union lost a valued member, leader and friend last week. Andreas Pfenning, son of Jennifer and Ekk Pfenning, passed away suddenly when he accidentally slipped into the Nith River while hunting on February 26th. Andreas was 24 years old.
Andreas was an active member of our organization. He currently held the position of President of Local 340 - Waterloo Wellington. Most recently, he attended the NFU Convention in Ottawa in November where he engaged in conversations with fellow members.
Andreas was passionate about farming and migrant workers rights. He was a great chef and loved to cook and brew beer.
Our hearts go out to the Pfenning family -- Jenn, Ekk, and his brothers Markus and Tristan -- and everyone who was fortunate to have known Andreas -- as we mourn his loss. He will be missed.
