Burk HorstBURK, Horst Karl Burk  - 

August 16, 1929 -  September 17, 2023


Peacefully passed away, in his sleep, at Hillsdale Estates on Sunday, September 17, 2023, in his 95th year.


Predeceased by his beloved wife Sophie. Loving father of John (Barbara) and Karin (Mike).


Cherished grandfather of Christopher (Marta) and Jaclyn (Brent) and great-grandfather of Alice, Kate, Rose, and Gwen.


Horst is a true example of a rags to riches story.


Born in Germany, he immigrated to Canada, where he met and married the love of his life, Sophie.


He made a wonderful and full life for his family.


One of his proudest accomplishments was building the family cottage on Belmont Lake, which was his favourite place to spend time.


Horst lived life on his own terms, which is why he had many great achievements throughout his life.


Special thanks to the staff and volunteers at Hillsdale Estates, Lavender Lane for their amazing care and compassion.


Horst was proud to be a member of the Family Council at Hillsdale.


As per his wishes, cremation has taken place.
