April 2, 1927 – March 30, 2009
It is with great sadness we announce that our husband, father and grandfather passed away suddenly due to complications of Alzheimers disease. Willi is survived by his wife Marianne, of 53 years, his son Andrew and his only grandchild Kayla Sieck, as well as his oldest brother Hans Sieck and his sister Elli, in Europe. Willi was predeceased by his parents, one brother and two sisters.
Willi came to Canada in 1950, settling in Prince George, BC on the Goose Country Road where he logged, farmed and raised his family, later building a house on the Old Summit Lake Road. After his retirement in 1991 from the BC Forest Service he moved to Comox, BC, to be near the ocean and enjoy his gardening! During the 45 years he lived in Prince George, working in several areas associated with logging he made many friends over the years and shared many stories of the life in PG as it was 60 years ago.
“No more words are needed
We will never forget you
In our hearts you will stay
And remembered every day.”
We will miss his dry sense of humor and his dedication to his family. Willi’s Celebration of Life will be held at Comox Valley Funeral Home, Cremation and Reception Centre, 1101 Ryan Road on Thursday, April 9th at 2:00 pm.
Flowers gratefully declined in consideration of donations to the Alzheimers Association or the Glacier View Lodge, 2450 Back Road, Courtenay, BC V9N 9G8 where he received excellent care and found peace.
Special thank you to Dr. Schovanek and the dedicated staff and support team at Glacier Lodge in Courtenay.
