WITTEMEIER, Christian Friedrich 'Wilhelm' - (March 26, 1933 - September 9, 2019) -
With profound sadness we announce the passing of Christian Friedrich Wilhelm Wittemeier, our loving husband, father, and friend to all whose lives he touched, on September 9th, 2019.
He left us peacefully at Scarborough General Hospital after a long illness. He was in his 86th year.
He was the cherished husband of Eva, whom he was married to for over 60 years, beloved father of Martin (Bettina) and Jürgen (Lori), and proud Opa of Stephanie, Alexandra, Christian, Katerina, and Caitlin.
Dear brother of Helga Schnepel (Heinz), and Friedrich Wittemeier (Margret). Remembered by his many nieces and nephews.
Born in Hille, Germany, he emigrated with his wife and sons to Canada over 50 years ago. Wilhelm lived a full life as a wonderful father who loved to travel with his family and friends. He loved joking and being the life of the party, he loved to cook, and he was a skilled singer who enjoyed being part of many choirs throughout the years. A farm boy at heart, gardening was also his passion.
Most of all, Wilhelm loved his family and instilled in his sons strong values that have served them well. He will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts.
A celebration of Wilhelm’s life will be held at Epiphany Lutheran Church, 20 Old Kingston Rd, Toronto, Ontario on Saturday, September 14th at 11 a.m., with a reception to follow.
Donations to Epiphany Lutheran Church in Wilhelm's memory are welcome. Arrangements with Giffen-Mack funeral home, Scarborough.
