October 30, 1931 – April 11, 2021
at the age of 89 years
It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Hans. Hans was born in Möderndorf in Kärnten, Austria. He became a master upholsterer by trade but also learned about bees and beekeeping from a early age. He was an inventor of many games, a winemaker and house designer. He had a very astute mind and loved to play chess especially with a nice glass of wine. Hans had a love for nature and the great outdoors, was a horticulturist and also enjoyed prospecting and going after that elusive gold! His favourite music was the Blue Danube and his favourite poem was Lied der Glocke (The Song of the Bell).
Hans was a devoted husband to Maria and he will be missed by family and friends. He was a true gentleman.
Many thanks to Dr. Warren Bell for his wonderful care.
Hans was laid to rest at the family grave at Mt. Ida Cemetery. There was no service by request. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Salvation Army would be appreciated.
