We Remember


On November 17, 2015 at the age of 89, Helmut passed peacefully into the arms of Jesus.  He is predeceased by Ursula, his dear wife and the love of his life for 64 years, his parents, one brother, four sisters and granddaughter Lisa.

He is survived by his sons Ron (Gloria) Fanslau, Harry Fanslau; his daughters Norma Anderson, Elenor (Dave) Hansum, all of Kelowna; his grandchildren Andy (Joya) Fanslau, Aaron (Sarah) Fanslau, Jonah (Ashley) Anderson, Jodi Anderson, Jeff (Donna) Hansum and Jordan (Julia) Hansum.  His legacy lives on in his nine great grandchildren.

Our lives were blessed by this wonderful man, a true gentleman, devoted father, loving grandfather, great grandfather and friend to many.

Heartfelt thanks to Dr. Marty Steinruck for taking exceptional care of our Dad and to the palliative nurses for their care and compassion in his final days.  Special thanks to his daughter Elenor, who once again provided love and support around the clock, as she did for our Mom.
