CLAUDE WILLIAM FRANZ STANZI

June 28, 1952 March 5, 2008. It is with great sadness that we announce the unexpected and sudden death of our son and brother, Claude Stanzl. Claude died peacefully in his sleep. He is predeceased by his father, Frank Stanzl and survived by his mother, Ingeborg Stanzl, his sister, Linda Vannier-Moreau (Gilles), his sister, Valerie, and his two nephews, Amaury and Julien Vannier-Moreau. He is lovingly remembered by both his family and his many friends as a warm, generous and loving spirit who always took the time to help others, sometimes at the expense of his own needs. Many people opened up to Claude as he had learned to listen from the heart. Through his deep faith he was able to see the spirit of God in every human being. He loved to learn, pursuing many fields of study. He especially loved flowers and plants and spent many hours collecting rock crystals and studying geological formations. Funeral services will take place on Friday, March 14, 2008. The burial will take place at Ocean View Funeral Home & Burial Park (49th and Imperial) at 1:00 p.m. This will be followed by a memorial service and reception at Immanuel Baptist Church (109 40th Avenue East, Vancouver, B.C.) starting at 2:30 p.m.
