Horst Heinrich Rehm, born September 1st, 1940 in Bad Kreuznach, Germany to Irmagard and Karl Rehm, passed away on August 30th, 2010 peacefully in the Foothills Hospital. Horst trained as a carpenter in Germany and later immigrated to Canada in June of 1960. He worked briefly for the CPR around Patricia, and as a farm hand in Iddesleigh and Jenner areas. Soon he got back doing carpentry pursuing the love of fine-finishing for forty-eight years over twenty-seven of them as Horst’s Carpentry Service!

    Our thoughts are with you. Horst was a kind man to my family and a loyal friend to my husband. Layne would come home and talk endlessly about Horst’s quality of finishing craftmanship and how he wished more trades would pay as much attention to detail as Horst did. I am looking at the cabinet that Layne and Horst built for me for my birthday and have to smile about how proud Layne was to give it to me… but he admitted Horst did most of the work. Layne talked about how much he admired Horst after Horst would share some of his childhood stories over shared soup at lunch. He was truly a thoughtful, generous and determined man and he will be missed by many, including us.
