    My deepest sympathy to the family. So many memories of all our coffee time conversations. Helmuth was a true friend in good times and bad times. I have always admired his passion for God; and his passion for sharing with those who didn't how him yet. We had so many deep spiritual conversation through the years.You will be missed my friend and brother. It will be quite a party when we're all together again!!! - André Chiasson

    To the Lange family,
    I am so sorry to hear of your loss of Karl.
    It's been forever that we were neighbours, living in Rutland. You were always so friendly and helpful to our family. It's unfortunate that in time we lose contact, when our lives go in different directions. Maybe we may, by chance meet again.
    Sending my condolences to you.

    KimBerley & myself are saddened to hear about your loss. I have several fond memories of Helmuth growing up. I would say that he had a big influence in my passion for aquariums having first witnesses one in his home in Edmonton a long time ago. I hope your sadness is dampened by the thoughts that he will join my mom in a better place

    Helmuth was one of the strongest believers of Jesus Christ I ever knew. He had more boldness to talk to anybody and mostly strangers about the Lord than most pastors. For God, he was one of His generals. Three devoted sons who love God and continue his legacy to this day were successfully raised by him and Elsie. He was dearly loved and admired. He has been promoted to sit at the feet of the Master.
