PAFFRATH, Hermann Hans

September 7, 1932 – Milan, Italy
April 28, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

It is with profound sadness that our family announces the peaceful but sudden passing of Hermann Hans Paffrath on Saturday April 28, 2018 at the age of 85 years. He joins his love Luisa, whom he missed dearly after her passing in October.

Dad will be missed by his children; Georg and Louise, Hans and Anna, Patricia and Shawn, Robert and Colomba, Mark and Tracy, Elizabeth; thirteen grandchildren and ten 1/2 great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his brothers-in-law, Lino Vivian and Rocco Cicchetti as well as his sisters-in-law and many loving nieces, nephews and friends.

Dad was very proud of his family and loved our family get-togethers. As the retired Treasurer for the Sierras of Tuscany Condo Corporation he made many good friends. However it was his love and dedication to our mom and his wife of 62 years along with his family that defined who he was.

A Celebration of Hermann’s Life will be held in late June. Announcements of the exact date and time will be posted. Condolences may be forwarded through If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Canadian Cancer Society, 200 – 325 Manning Rd. N.E., Calgary, AB T2E 2P5 Telephone: (403) 205-3966, email
