We Remember

Dueck Eduard

DUECK, Eduard

With hearts full of sadness we announce the peaceful passing of Eduard Dueck on Jan 25, 2017 at the age of 88. Eduard was born on August 17, 1928 in Marienau, West Prussia, immigrating from Germany to Canada in 1950.  He is survived by his loving and devoted wife of 63 years, Anna, 4 daughters, 3 sons, 11 grandchildren, and 17 great-grandchildren, one younger sister, along with many nieces, nephews and extended family.


He was a devoted family man and was engaged in the noble labour of providing for his family, as a plasterer, farmer, painter, sign maker, janitor and maintenance man. He found joy in applying himself to all his work with great enthusiasm.  He moved his family to Kelowna, BC in April 1966 when he purchased his janitorial business, Dueck Maintenance Service.  He was also employed for 27 years by the City of Kelowna in the Paint & Sign shop, retiring in 1993.  His janitorial business remained in operation until 1999.


He was a man of strong faith, gentleness and loving kindness. He was dearly loved by all who knew him and will be profoundly missed.  It is a Hallelujah morning in Heaven, but the tears flow here on earth because we have lost a beloved husband, Vati and Opa, brother and friend.


A Funeral Service will be held on Monday, February 6, 2017 at 1:00 pm at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC with interment to follow at Kelowna Memorial Park Cemetery. Officiating the service will be Mike Penninga.
