June 13, 1926 – January 13, 2019
at the age of 92 years
Memorial Service: Tuesday, January 22, 2019, Deo Lutheran Church, Salmon Arm, 10:30 a.m.
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father and grandfather Heinz Antoni. Heinz is survived by Benita, his loving wife of 66 years, his children Kurt, Helmut and Barbara, grandson Lucas and sister Hannelore Grűttner and family. We are thankful that Heinz could pass peacefully at home, in the care of his wife.
In 1958, Heinz emigrated from Germany to Vancouver, Canada with his wife, three small children and mother in Law (Oma) to start a new life. Heinz’s new life was filled with adventures – both good and not so good – all of which he approached with a great deal of creativity.
Upon retirement from his work as a fireplace mason, he and Benita built their retirement home in Salmon Arm. He enjoyed the peacefulness of his surroundings. Heinz lived a deep spiritual life devoted to love, peace and tolerance.
Godspeed on your journey home
