Written by Werner’s own hand.
Born in Germany on January 1 1925, died July 8 2017.
He had the privilege to grow up in a beautiful country side next to a castle with all the extras.
He left home when he was 16 to learn his trade in the dairy industry lasting 29 years.
In October 1943 he had to join the military and with the end in sight he became a US-POW in September 1944 near Belgium. It lasted 27 months. He laboured all that time and in mid-1945 was privileged to work with 15 others in the center of Paris until he was released in November 1946.
He went back to work including extensive schooling to become a full time lab technician until 1957.
It was also the year when he and his wife went overseas to venture into the best country called Canada.
He married his lovely wife in 1954 and in all managed their life for 62 years. It was a successful beginning in Calgary and they moved on in 1962 and settled down for the rest of their life in their home town Victoria. They soon became Landlords for the next 23 years and there was lots of time left to enjoy their homemade motor home, traveling crossing borders into lands what is called the USA, Mexico, Alaska and Maritime Provinces and Germany many times.
All comes to an end. Amen
There will be a Celebration of Life at the ARIA (737 Humboldt Street, Victoria), from 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm on Wednesday, August 2, 2017. Contact email@example.com to confirm your attendance.
