February 7, 1929 – March 27, 2020
Fritz was born February 7, 1929 and passed away peacefully, at the age of 91, on March 27, 2020 after a brief stay in Kelowna General Hospital.
Survived by his loving wife of almost 65 years, Adele; son Fritz Werner; sisters Frieda Reinzuch and Martha Horn and brother Eric and their spouses brothers and sisters-in-law; and many nieces, nephews and friends.
After immigrating to Canada from Germany in 1951, his working career was spent primarily in residential construction in Kelowna. In his free time, he enjoyed fishing and camping and puttering with his garage sale finds. Sunday mornings he often played old German folk tunes on his harmonica and spent many afternoons with family and friends at the German Canadian Harmonie Club in the clubhouse which he and other members helped build. He will be deeply missed by all.
A celebration of his life with family and friends will be held at a later date. A very special thank-you to all the staff at KGH 4 West for their care and support during these especially challenging times and also to the staff at Springfield Funeral Home.
