He was ordained on June 18, 1913 in Chicago, Illinois. Reverend Pfeiffer served multiple parishes, in both Canada and the United States, during his career. He retired on Dec. 31, 1953, and died in Kingston, Ontario on September 3, 1967. He was interned at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Denbigh, Ontario.

Antler was a lifelong member of Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church in Pembroke, Ontario, where he served as a board member, church historian, and program chairman for Zion’s 1983 centennial celebration.
