It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Mr. Reinhold Fortsch on February 7, 2004.
Born on December 8, 1934 in Kulmbach, Germany, he is survived by his wife Erika and children, Richard (Charlene) Fortsch of Anahim, B.C. Adrienne Fortsch (Adam) of Prince George, and Jennifer Fortsch (Kirk) of Medicine Hat, Alberta, two granddaughters Madison and Alexis as well as many friends and family in Germany and Luxembourg.
Reinhold came to Canada in 1956 and settled in Prince George, working at Canfor for twenty three years. He retired in 1992 and moved with his wife to the Abbotsford area. He loved to travel and enjoyed good music, the outdoors and most of all fishing with his friends at Mill Lake.
Sincere thanks to Dr. R. Pankratz and Dr. Byrne for their care during his illness.
Cremation is requested and a memorial service will be held in Prince George, B.C.
