We Remember

CORBACH, Henry (Heinrich)

Passed away suddenly at Kelowna General Hospital on Sunday, May 20th, 2012.  Henry was born in Göttingen, Germany on August 15th, 1926 and grew up on a farm with his grandparents in Reher, Germany.  He first immigrated to Canada in 1952, where he worked as a painter.  He briefly returned to Germany at Christmas time in 1954 to marry his sweetheart, Inge and together they took guardianship of Hilde, Inge’s young half-sister.  They returned permanently to Canada, where they eventually settled in Winfield, B.C.  Henry was proud to purchase and farm on his own fruit orchard until his retirement in 1990.  Over the years Henry enjoyed swimming in Okanagan Lake, hiking on SpionKopje, picnics with family and friends, riding his bike, playing chess and reading.  Henry was a quiet and reflective man, dedicated to his work and family.  He was much loved and his presence will be missed dearly. 


Henry is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Inge (Ingeborg); daughters Beate of Winfield, Ingrid (David) of North Vancouver and son Bernie (Mandy) of Peachland; grandchildren Rolfe, Sonya, Alexander, Devin, Mitchell, Dustin and other relatives in Canada and Germany.
