Gunter Paul Hofmeister

September 24, 1932 - April 4, 2016


Gunter Paul Hofmeister passed away peaceful at the age of 83 years at the Ivy House in Invermere, BC on Monday, April  4, 2016.  Gunter was born in Berlin, Germany on September 24, 1932.

Gunter came to Canada and settled first in Regina as a young man.  He married his loving wife and best friend Joyce on June 17, 1960 and they were blessed with five children.  In 1971, Gunter and Joyce moved to Cranbrook and made this their home.  Gunter was well known for his love of the outdoors and his enjoyment of fishing, hiking and skiing.  In later years, his greatest joy came from his 13 grandchildren and six great grandchildren.  They were his pride!

Left to mourn his passing are his beloved wife, Joyce and his children; Heidi (Wayne), Glenn (Nancy), Roy (Toni-lynn), Marty and Joey (Jackie) as well as his beloved 13 grandchildren and six great grandchildren.  He also leaves one brother, Kurt Hofmeister and one sister, Annelies Kories, both from Berlin.

A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, April 9, 2016 at Mount Zion Lutheran Church, on the corner of 11th St. and 11th Ave. in Cranbrook at 1:00 pm.  If friends desire, memorial donations may be made in Gunter’s memory to the Heart & Stroke Foundation, #4 – 1551 Sutherland Ave., Kelowna, BC  V1Y 9M9.
