Hugo REIMER

Hugo Waldemar Reimer passed away July 14, 2014. Hugo is survived by his wife Connie of 34 years, daughter Rinette and Andrew Badker, son Jesse and Jen Reimer, grandchildren Hannah, Keenan, Natalie Reimer, parents Waldemar and Irene Reimer, brother Gerhard and Christina Reimer. Hugo loved God and joyfully served as pastor for 31 years. Most recently at Sardis Community Church in Chilliwack, before that at Nechako Community Church in Vanderhoof, Clovis College Community in California and in Leaf Rapids Manitoba. Hugo had a love for life and an even greater love for people. He saw the best in everyone he met, wanting to encourage each and instill in them the knowledge that they are deeply valued and worthy of being loved. He was kind and thoughtful always wanting to do more, give more, help more, no task too minimal, no person unworthy. He was very athletic – loved downhill skiing, soccer, hockey, hiking and running. He also enjoyed exploring a tropical location each winter with his wife to snorkel and read. Hugo’s model for life is taken from “A Man from Le Mancha” quote “I see life not as it is but as it ought to be.” A celebration of life service will be held at Sardis Community Church on Tuesday, July 22 at 2:00 in the afternoon and will be live streamed at Nechako Community Church in Vanderhoof.
