KLAUS HARALD KIECKER (published on January 24, 2009)

KLAUS HARALD KIECKER After a brief illness Klaus passed away on January 19, 2009 at the Grace Hospital in Winnipeg, Manitoba at the age of 68. Klaus was born in Danzig, Germany on November 18, 1940 and immigrated to Canada along with his mother Viktoria on December 7, 1955. He was a very proud Canadian and truly grateful for the opportunities Canada brought him. He was predeceased by his mother and father Viktoria and Walter; sister Lilo Kramme; mother and father in law Margaret and Robert Orr and brother in law Richard Orr. He is survived by his loving wife Roberta; son Bruce (Crystal); sisters-in-law Phyllis (Ronald) Cisneros and Barbara (Donald) Stevens; brother-in-law Bernard Kramme as well as his nieces and nephews, Rita, Vera, Donald and Kimberly. The loves of his life were his wife of 43 years Roberta, his only son Bruce, his cats, the Charleswood wildlife, gardening, and keeping an eye on the neighborhood as Block Captain of the Neighborhood Watch. He joined Air Canada in Montreal in October 1967 and transferred to Winnipeg in September of 1980, where he retired in August 2001 after 34 years of service as a Lead Hand Mechanic. Klaus was known for his immaculate lawn and clean sidewalks and to be the first to offer a helping hand to anyone in need and never expecting anything in return. He was a loyal friend and generous spirit who will be greatly missed by his family and friends. The family would like to extend their thanks to staff of the Grace Hospital, especially the ICU unit for the care shown to Dad. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Winnipeg Humane Society, 45 Hurst Way, Winnipeg, MB, R3T 0R3. A memorial service in celebration of Klaus's life will be held on Monday, January 26, 2009 at 12:30 p.m. at Chapel Lawn Funeral Home, 4000 Portage Ave. Chapel Lawn 885-9715
