Gottfried “Fred” Johannes KALISCH

Gottfried “Fred” Johannes passed away peacefully at MSA Hospital in his 79th year, on Friday, November 25, 2005. He will be sadly missed by his children Andrew (Thea) Kalisch and Karen (Grant) Wilson; his beloved grandchildren Matthew Lima and Emily, Fred, and Frank Wilson; his sisters Jane, Eva, and Christa; his neice Brigitte (Otto) Schwarz and their children Tamara (Roderick) and Stephan (Kimberly); his nephews Mathias and Detlev in Germany; and his dear friend Hilde and her son Jurgen and daughter Monika.

Fred was devoted to his family and the friends he made in his 79 years with us. Fred’s time was spent gardening, traveling, and visiting with friends and family, although his greatest joy was the time he spent admiring his grandchildren. He managed his life with a sense of humour and made a new friend every time he turned a corner. Friends and family will be received at Henderson’s Funeral Home, 34537 Marshall Road, Abbotsford on Thursday, December 1 at 12:30 pm. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Vancouver Children’s Hospital, 4480 Oak Street, Vancouver, BC V6H 3V4.
