September 30, 1930 — April 22, 2019
We are so very sad to announce the passing of Anton Wolf Sr on April 22, 2019 in his 89th year surrounded by loved ones.
Our Dad and Opa, also known as Tony, lived a full and fruitful life enriched by the enduring love of his dear wife and partner of more than 65 years Maria and his family.
Missing him deeply are Maria, his devoted children Tony (Peggy), Mary (Len), cherished grandchildren, Christey (Michael), Candice (JS), Alexandra (Gerald), Zoe, and his three great grandsons of whom he was so proud. Also missing Dad are his many friends and extended family near and far.
There was always room at Dad’s table for family and friends. His hospitality was legendary and he loved being with his people. Dad had a playful sense of humour and we fondly recall all the joy, jokes and laughter through the years. Dad talked about his deep faith with those closest to him. His kindness touched many over the years.
Dad took immense joy and pride in growing and sharing his tree fruits, vegetables and flowers over his many years as a hardworking, knowledgeable and talented orchardist and gardener. He loved nature in all of its pure glory. Dad cherished the beautiful Okanagan Valley and proudly contributed to the beauty and bounty of Kelowna, always supported by his beloved wife. He was fit and active up until his final weeks. He had a huge and loving heart and in the end, it was his kind heart that grew weary.
Many thanks to everyone involved in Dad’s care these last weeks. Please know that he appreciated each one of you.
If you knew our Dad and Opa and wish to honour his memory, please consider sharing some time, a meal or something from your life’s garden with someone who could use a hand up. This would make Dad happy.
Dad, Opa, we miss you, we love you and we’ll see you again on the other side. We’ll remember you in every apple blossom, bird song, sunrise, sunset and every moment in between. We are all so blessed to have been in your loving arms and heart.
We will gather to celebrate Dad’s life on Saturday June 8, 2019 at 1:00 pm at The Springfield Funeral Home.
