It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our Father and Opa on April 2nd 2019 at the age of 88 years.
Manfred was born in Neugersdorf, Germany on September 24, 1930. Predeceased by his beloved wife, Hildegard, in 2011, son Harald and daughter-in-law Faye. Survived by his children Hans (Michele), Klaus, Silvia (Ron), and Carmen (James).
He will be lovingly remembered and missed by his many grandchildren and great-grandchildren Tanja (Michel), Bettina (Mark), Kristy, Courtney, Casey, Amy (Justin), Mark (Nicole), Jessica (Kyle), Caitlin (Justin), Sheridan, Sydney, Jacob, Jordan, Athena, Charlotte, and Evelyn. Also dearly missed by his extended family in Germany.
Manfred will be fondly remembered for his quick wit and sense of humour, and for his love of soccer, German folk music, and the “Buffalos”.
Thank you to the wonderful nurses and doctors at Grand River Hospital’s Integrated Stroke Unit for their kind and compassionate care.
A private family service will be held at a later date to celebrate his life. Messages and condolences for the family may be left at tricitycremations.com
