  1. Thank you for being the most amazing Father-in-Law… I will truly miss you.
    Rest in Peace Dad.
    Love Rhonda

  2. Simply the BEST Dad any child (young or old) could ask for. You’ve given me so many wonderful memories to cherish. You didn’t just sit on the sidelines you participated in everything from tobogganing, iceskating, swimming, taking me on Saturday mornings to the German Bakery on 118 Ave to pick up fresh pretzels, showing me how to throw a boomerang, use a bow and arrow, hit a perfect bullseye with a riffle, how to play backgammon and every other card game and so much more. Dad you are simply the best and I’ll miss you horribly but I take joy in knowing that I’ll see you again. Love you
    Your daughter Tammy

  3. Rest in peace my friend and brother

  4. We will miss the time of having coffee with you and Laura and tease me so much and I would give it right back. We will miss you so much. Love and prayers ???

  5. Dear Heinz. Thanks for making many dreary days better for me when I was outside. You always had a tease for me and made me smile. You paid me such high compliments for my donuts and my baked buns. I appreciated that so much. And you were always willing to lend a helping hand. We could not have asked for a better neighbor. Your cheerfulness even in adversity were an example to all. See you up in heaven, friend. Love neighbor Elizabeth

  6. Uncle Heinz I’m a bit jealous that you get the chance to see my mom again before me, and probably get some of granny brown’s chocolate cake lol. You always joked with us and brought a smile to our faces whenever we were together, so I’m promising you, we will meet you in heaven again.

  7. Even though it has been many years since we last bumped into each other, I have many fond memories of Heinz. Both him and Laura were always caring, he was often very humorous a bit of a jokester. It seemed every few years I would run into Heinz with Laura always at his side(the made a great pair) we would always spend a few minutes catching up. I can still hear his voice, I loved the way he said Laura. He was blessed to have 3 amazing children, I’m sure he was even more honoured to watch them mature into wonderful adults with kids of their own. I bet he beamed with pride at being a Grandpa too! I so glad that the family will one day reunite at their forever home. Heinz isn’t gone, he will always live here in their hearts, his address may have changed, but great is his reward. I know he was welcomed into the loving eternal arms of Jesus hearing the words “well done, welcome home”!

  8. Uncle Heinz, you presence on earth will be missed, but know that we will see you again in heaven. So many great memories of you, growing up! Rest well! Much love!

  9. Rest in peace my friend.God will be comforting to family.Amen!

  10. Laura, I was shocked when I heard of the passing of Heinz, Sifton won’t be the same without him!
    I am so sorry for your loss! Take care and surround yourself with your loved ones and hold them tight!
