GUNTER, Gunter Klaus Horst

GLOGER – Gunter Klaus Horst. December 25, 1929 – December 17, 2018
It is with heartfelt sadness that we announce the passing of our dear father. Surrounded by his family, Gunter closed his eyes one last time at the Central Okanagan Hospice House in Kelowna BC. He is survived by his sons Wolfgang (Pat) Gloger, Ralf Gloger, daughter Jutta (Leslaw) Cyrynowski, his dear friend Ingrid Weber, Ruth Wagner and Anneliese (Horst) Schmidtke in Germany, his grandchildren Derrick Gloger, Martina Gauthier, Savannah Dawe, and Rhys Gloger, and great-grandchildren Liam and Hank. He is predeceased by his wife of 55 years, Hilde (2007), son Heinz-Jurgen, parents Paul and Hedwig Gloger, and 2 siblings. Gunter was born in Strehlen, Germany. After becoming an accomplished sheet metal mechanic he moved his family to Hannover where he started his career at the Bahlsen factory. In 1967 the family immigrated to Canada, living in Medicine-Hat for over a year, and then settling in Edmonton AB. In his early retirement both Gunter and Hilde moved to Kelowna to enjoy the warmer climate and to pursue their passion of gardening, fishing and traveling. A funeral service will be held on Friday, December 21, 2018 at 11:00 AM at Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church, 2091 Gordon Drive, Kelowna BC. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Gunter’s name to the Central Okanagan Hospice Association, or to a charity of your choice.

    Our deepest sympathy goes out to Gunter's family. We enjoyed the time shared with him at Meadowbrook Estates. Such an interesting man to speak with and a true gentleman. We were happy that Gunter had such a beautiful and caring friend in Ingrid in his later years. He was a fine man and we are happy we got to know him.

    Dear Family, what a great picture of your Dad. Always the true Gentleman ! I had the pleasure of working with him many years ago when he took a "Hobby Job" at the post office, and delivered his mail on Ethel. I loved to see what he was up to in his carport shop, I knew it was serious when he had the blue overalls on ! After your Mom passed away I was happy to see him strolling down Enterprise Way & often stopped to have a chat. He truly embraced life, we never want to go,but I'm sure he knew he had done a fine job and went peacefully.
