In loving memory, Klaus Kotzian, 87, passed away March 8, 2022 in Penticton after years of dealing with Alzheimer's.
Big Thanks go out to Trinity Care Facility for their loving and compassionate care.
Klaus was born in Berlin, Germany. He came to Vancouver in 1957. Klaus and his wife Trudy moved to Tulameen in 1984 where they resided for 30 years. The small community gave them all they wanted and needed. The progression of Klaus's illness resulted in their move to Penticton in 2015.
Klaus worked for 20 years for a propane company in Vancouver, many years as a tank-truck driver, his last 5 years as a dispatcher and shipper. He finished his working life as a school-bus driver in Princeton/Tulameen. Klaus was a gentle and kind person, always willing to help, always there for others. He will be missed by all who knew him.
The interment of his ashes at "Gods Little Acre" in Tulameen will be held at a later date.
Friends wishing to do so may make a donation to the Tulameen Community/Flood Relief in Klaus's memory
