Gone Fishing~
Horst passed away unexpectedly on December 4th, 2021 at the age of 81. Horst was predeceased by his wife of 46 years, Christel, his sister Marianne and brother Reinhard. He leaves behind his daughter, Irene (Jaret), granddaughters Ashleigh and Abby, sister Annemarie and many friends and family in BC and Germany.
Born in Dorren, Germany, Horst moved to Canada in 1963 and eventually settled in Port Coquitlam. He worked as an electrician in Port Moody for thirty years before retiring in 1995.
Horst cared deeply about his family, supporting them in whatever way he could. He enjoyed fishing, camping, hunting, gardening and a good Western. He liked simple things, smokies around a campfire, being out on the lake, playing cards, a good cup of coffee and a nice cold beer.
Memories of all of the camping and fishing trips, card games and backyard pool time will be cherished by his family forever.
No service will be held at Horst’s request and cremation has taken place. A small gathering at Horst and Christel’s favourite lake will take place in the summer.Obituary
