  1. Corine, Ryan, Heather and families,
    Our condolences to all. Your pain and sorrow to lose a spouse, father, father-in-law and grandparent must be great. Hopefully the warm thoughts and memories you share will help you through this difficult time. Heather, we think of you often and send our love to you and your whole family. We are so happy that you have Mike to lean on.

  2. Hi Corine,
    Your neighbour across from you here. I didn’t know Wolf at all, except for your magnificent hedge, always so carefully groomed.

    Richard is away hunting, but he commented before he left that something was different at your house, and I’m sure he would join me in sincere condolences for your loss.

    We’re staying right here, across from your home. Please don’t hesitate if we can help you now, and long into the future. Our home phone is 778 489 5112. I’d love a call too if you’d just like to come over for a chat.

  3. Dear Corine. I was sorry and saddened to hear of Wolf’s passing. Please extend my condolences to your family. It is times like this that we realize how limiting words can be. I know right now it is hard to see past the sorrow but I hope that reflecting on the wonderful memories that you and Wolf shared will help you through this time. With your children and grandchildren Wolf’s legacy will certainly live on.

  4. Corinne, Ryan and Heather,

    Our thoughts and sympathies are with you all and your familes through this difficult time.
    Wolf will always be remembered as a thoughtful man and be missed by so many.

    He was kind and he was cool.
    To me, That is an impressive legacy to leave behind.

    As we can’t be there for the service, please know, we will be thinking of you all.

    With warmth –

  5. Corine, Ryan and Heather, my deepest sympathies for all of you and your loved ones. I have fond childhood memories with all of you; spending summers at the cabin down by the lake, going for boat rides and waterskiing. Wolf was a great friend to all of us.

  6. Corine and family, we are so sorry to hear of Wolf’s passing. Our thoughts and hearts are with you at this difficult time.

  7. My sincerest condolences to you Corinne and your family at this time. Although I haven’t see Wolfe for several years, there are many good memories with him. From high school to fixing cars in an old garage with a gas pipe just burning for heat in the winter, Fairmont and get togethers in Oyama. It looks like you two created a very good life for yourselves with a large loving family. I understand your grief and good memories will guide you.

  8. Corine, Ryan, Sephorah, Heather, Mike, Easton, Cohen, Carter, Jake, Ilsa and extended family,
    You are in my thoughts and prayers during this time of loss and grief. May your wonderful memories of pizzas, trips abroad, talks on the back deck, time in the boat, golfing or whatever is special to you help you move forward and keep this loving and caring man forever in your hearts. Corine, you are so blessed to have had Wolf in your life; he loved, cherished, honored and respected you. Together you welcomed Ryan and Heather (two precious gifts) into this world and their families who are your legacies of your time together. May you all cherish the memories and support one another in the days forward. Rest in peace Wolf and we will share pizzas together again one day.
    Love always,

  9. My deepest sympathies go out to Corine, Ryan, Heather, the grandkids and extended family members. Wolf has been a friend for many years, from our days in school right through to recent get togethers in Vernon and Oyama when our old crew get together. I was saddened to hear of Wolfs passing, and understand the grief you all must be going through……. you will always remember to great times you all had together! Rest In Peace Wolf, I will see you in the next stop someday on our journey!

  10. Corine, Heather, Ryan & families. You all are constantly in our thoughts & prayers. Andy & I are counting our blessings that we are a part of the pack in the Hild & Schuler families. So thankful for the wonderful reunion at Taber last year as we all had a chance to reconnect & truly enjoy each other’s company. Got some great family pics that are truly irreplaceable, just as your Husband, Father, Opa, or Grandpa is, but are very very thankful we were blessed to get to know him.
    God speed Wolf, and may you all find comfort in your many memories,
    Stay strong and know so many love you all.

    Love Andy & Glenna
