February 15, 1938 – November 24, 2011
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Husband, Father, Grandfather and friend Manfred Hufschmidt, on November 24. 2011.
Predeceased by his parents, Richard and Helma Hufschmidt he leaves behind his loving wife of 51 years, Rosemarie, daughter Isabella, son-in-law Guy, grandchildren Ryan and Tyler and many loving friends.
Manfred lost his battle with cancer and passed away peacefully at home surrounded by the ones he loved. The family would like to extend their gratitude to all the wonderful people who helped care for Manfred in his final days.
Manfred may be gone but he will always live on in our hearts.
Somehow I know that
There’s a place up above
With no more hurt and struggle
Free of all atrocities and suffering
Because I feel the unconditional love
From one who cares enough about me
To erase all the burdens
And let me be free to
“Fly like a bird”
The family is celebrating Manfreds life on December 18th, 2011 at the 888 (Komox) RCAF Wing from 2-5 pm. In lieu of flowers the family would appreciate donations go to the place Manfred loved to be the most. Friday Sunshine Lunch Club, c/o Nelli Smit, 90-4714-Muir Road,Courtenay V9N 8Z6. Manfred
