May 19, 1936 – May 24, 2012
Kurt Drocholl went to be with the Lord at the age of 76. He passed away peacefully with his wife Ingrid by his side after a courageous battle with cancer. Lovingly remembered by his wife Ingrid of 49 years, six children; Andrew Drocholl (Pam), Esther Ratzlaff (Jeff), Ruth Penner (Dale), Eva Reimer (Cam), Daniel Drocholl (Liz), David Drocholl, ten grandchildren, and sister Brigitte Lauch residing in Germany.
Kurt, with his wife and two young children immigrated from Germany to Ontario, Canada in 1966. After working many jobs, in 1973 he decided to get his diploma in forestry and then moved his family to B.C. in 1975. He was drawn to B.C. because of his love of the forests and majestic mountains. He worked for the B.C. Ministry of Forests for many years.
Our family gives heartfelt thanks to the wonderful caring staff at Cascade Hospice and Lodge and the many doctors and nurses who cared for him. Thank-you to church, family and friends, for all the precious prayers, love and support.
Service to be held at Greendale MB Church on May 31, 2012 at 11:00 AM. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Bible Society. Kurt’s favorite bible passage can be found in Psalms 91:14-16.
