BRUECKERT Georg Paul. April 19, 1921 – July 16, 2012. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Georg Paul Brueckert at the Fraser Hope Lodge.
Dad had a long and amazing life, one full of its share of success and failures, joys and regrets as he said. He was grateful for all the people who loved him. Our father was a living history book and we are forever grateful for what he shared with us. He was an inventor, creator and curious to the end of his days. He is survived by his wife Cathy and his three children, Daniel, Marianne (George) Preston, and Anita (Grant)
Malensek and his many grandchildren.
Dad was born in Elsterwerda, Germany in 1921 and he emigrated to Canada in 1951. He met Mom in Windsor, Ontario and they married in 1961 and settled in Surrey, BC. He was a long haul truck driver for much of his life but chose to haul steel locally to be close to home. When he retired he pursued his love of flight and gliding. This is what brought him to Hope. In 1989 mom and he settled in Hope. They made many dear and lasting friends. Dad was an active member of the Hope Gliding Club for many years. We wish to thank the staff and those who visited Dad while he was at Park Street Manor and at the Fraser Hope Lodge. Your kindness and care toward our father was very much appreciated. There will a small gathering held at the family home on July 29th at 11 am for those who wish to share their memories and stories of Dad. There will be no funeral at his request. Internment to follow at a later date.
Wir lieben euch, liebe Papa. Sie Sind in unseen Herzen fur immer.
