Hans Joachim (Jhon)

1922 – 2009

Jhon was born in Langenau, Germany on March 10, 1922. Jhon immigrated with his beloved mother Martha to Canada in 1930. He lived in various places from Manitoba, to Alberta, and then his family settled in Whonnock, Maple Ridge, BC, where he lived since he was a teenager.

Jhon passed away peacefully on March 28, 2009 at Ridge Meadows Hospital. He will be sadly missed by his longtime companion and caregiver wife Marta and her children Veronica, Tony, and Sam; also his beloved granddaughter Kimberly.

Jhon will be remembered by his friends and family as a very strong man, who lived life to the fullest and always by his own terms.

He was a very good man; our lives are now richer for having known him. He will be greatly missed and fondly remembered by all his friends; especially Bob Isley and family.
