Rev. Clement Hoyler was born in Laketown, now Lake Auburn, Minnesota, on May 12, 1872. He was the youngest child of Rev. Jacob Hoyler and Mrs. Emilie (Rupprecht) Hoyler. Clement Hoyler studied for one year at the Northwestern Lutheran College before he transferred to Moravian College and Theological Seminary. Hoyler graduated in 1892, and fifty-one years later the Moravian College and Theological Seminary granted him the degree of Doctor of Divinity as one of its outstanding graduates. Hoyler was ordained a deacon in 1892, and then a presbyter in 1898; he was consecrated a bishop at Lititz, Pa. in 1908. Hoyler was one of the youngest brethren in America ever to have been chosen for this office. Hoyler served for four years in Elizabeth, N.J. before embarking on the pioneer mission in Canada. Hoyler later became the leader of Moravian work in Canada, and the first president of the Canada district. While in Canada Hoyler took advantage of the opportunity to study the surrounding land and made significant contributions to the fields of astronomy, meteorology, and entomology. Clement Hoyler married Mary Gerdsen of Laketown in 1902. Their union was blessed with two children, Cyril and Mabel. Bishop Hoyler also served in Ephraim, Wis., and West Green Bay, Wis. His wife Mary passed away in 1945, and two years later Hoyler retired from service, and spent his final years in Northfield, Minn. Clement Hoyler passed away after prolonged illness onJanuary 21, 1957.
