AUGUST 23, 1929 ~ DECEMBER 19, 2015

With heavy hearts we announce the passing of our loving father, husband and grandfather. Fritz Pointner was born in Hofgastein, Austria and immigrated to Canada in 1952. He and his devoted wife Helga brought up their family in Edmonton and later moved to Kelowna. A hardworking man, Fritz loved his work as a mechanic and especially treasured his years at Western Star as a foreman and after his retirement as a Western Star plant tour guide. Predeceased by his loving wife Helga in December 2013, Fritz is survived by his three daughters, step son , eight grandchildren and one great granddaughter. Dad is now with Mama watching over us all. The family wishes to share their heartfelt thanks to the staff at Three Links Manor who took such special care of our dad during the last two and a half years of his life. No service by request. If friends so desire memorial tributes may be made to
