January 3, 1936 – March 1, 2012
It is with great sadness that we announce that Heinz Kreutzenstein passed away on Thursday, March 2, 2012 at the age of 76 years.
Heinz was born in 1936 in Koenigsberg, Germany. He married Erika in 1958 and they have been very much in love and best of friends for the past 54 years. They immigrated to Canada in 1959. He was a machinist for Canadian Pacific Railway for most of his career where he retired in 1996. He loved spending time in the garden and loved to take trips that included long walks along the ocean with Erika. His most memorable trip was the Mediterranean Cruise he took in 2010.
He will be lovingly missed by all his close family and friends both here in Canada and in Germany. He will be especially dearly missed by those of us that called him Dad: Ute (Gerry), David and Bruce (Lorna); Opa to Chad, Karl, Ryan, Christina, Alex, Joshua and Anika and he was Gross Opa to little Erika. We are all better people and are truly blessed to have had Heinz touch our lives with his love.
