Sepp passed away peacefully on February 3, 2017 at Kelowna General Hospital at the age of 91 after a short illness, with Agnes by his side.

Sepp was born in Mercydorf, Romania and lived in Salzburg, Austria before emigrating to Canada in the early 1950s where he made his home in many BC locations, including Natal, Prince George, Parksville, and Williams Lake before finally retiring to Kelowna in 1975.

Sepp was a long-time member of the Westbank Lions Club and the Westbank Yacht club. He enjoyed fishing, walking, hiking, travelling, and playing crib with his friends and neighbours at Sandpointe.

Sepp is survived by his loving wife, Agnes Komarevich; sister Anna Lambing of Germany; daughter Tami Wallis (Dean) of Armstrong; son Blue Braun of Victoria; step-sons Alec Croisdale (Mildred), Walter Croisdale (Bev) and Allan Komarevich (Kim); grandchildren Trysch Anderson, Michael Breitschmid, Gemma Wallis, and Lee Wallis; cousins Sepp & Louisa Schmidt of Germany; and many more extended family members.

He is predeceased by his wife Jeanne in 2000. Sepp will be sadly missed by his family and friends. The family would like to extend many thanks to all the staff who showed such kindness and took gentle care of Sepp during his time at KGH.

    Our condolences to all of Sepp’s loved ones. He will be greatly missed by many. Sepp was such an inspiration to me as we shared a common challenge in our daily lives… that being Parkinson’s disease. You would see Sepp as he shuffled along behind his walker while he followed his doctor’s orders to get exercise to keep his legs moving. Sepp always had more than one story to tell you and he always had a smile for everyone he met. In my heart, the memory of Sepp’s determination and courage will give me strength to face the trials of the disease but he will be sadly missed in our gated ‘Hood… I feel blessed to have known Sepp for the time we were given. I know he’ll be happy and free from all the aches, pains and challenges where he is now. Sepp, my next “lap” around the ‘Hood will be one for you… Thank you for leaving such an impact and for being such an inspiration. Warm hugs of support to the family.
    Phil & Wendy Olinger

    We’ll miss Sepp and his friendly smile in Sandpointe. He always had time for a visit on our streets. Had great times years ago when we had our hiking club in Sandpointe. He always had interesting stories to tell.
