Wilhelm Saufferer

SÄUFFERER, Wilhelm

 

Säufferer, Wilhelm Adolf “Bill”, born March 18, 1945 in

Albershausen, Germany, went to his heavenly home on June 20, 2011, at the age of 66, in

Kelowna.  In 1980, Wilhelm moved his young family of six and their two grandparents to Canada in search of new

opportunities.  He soon built a thriving business based on

fairness, honesty, integrity and hard work.  Wilhelm will be remembered for his bright smile and cheerfulness, his kind heart in helping those in need, his ability to make anyone laugh, and his dedication to his Saviour, Jesus Christ.  He is survived by his loving family, wife of 42 years, Inge, their four children; Gabriele (Peter) Schrod, Markus (Heidi),

Michael (Amy), and Johannes (Leslie); his nine precious grandchildren: Stephanie, Sarah, Matthew, Olivia, Eli,

Annika, Lauren, Aaron, and Makenna; father-in-law Erwin Giersch (Ursula) and four siblings in Germany.  Wilhelm is predeceased by his parents, one sister and his mother-

in-law.  Many thanks to numerous friends for their support and prayers, the exceptional staff at the Village at Mill Creek, and to Doctors B. Eliason and W. Carlyle for their compassionate care.  A celebration of Wilhelm’s life will be held on Monday, June 27th  at 2:30 pm at Grace Baptist Church, 1150 Glenmore Drive. Donations in lieu of flowers may be made to Chain of Love (chainoflove.org) or to The
