It is with heavy hearts the family of Anton Krenz announces his passing.

He is survived by his loving family, son David (Sheila); daughters Heidi (Jim) and Nancy (Jamie); four grandchildren Kyle, Brayden, Taryn and Michelle; one great-granddaughter Kendall; sister Linda (Rudolph); and nieces and nephews.

Anton is pre-deceased by his parents, Wilhem and Berta; brother Rudolph; first wife Irmgard and second wife Esther.

    The world has lost one of the good people with the passing of Tony. Any time I was in Kelowna, I always enjoyed spending dinner with Tony at one of the local restaurants. In addition to family, he enjoyed an active social life and I know we are all saddened by the news of his passing.

    Rest in Peace to our friend Tony. I met Tony through my Mother Herta. Mom died in a car accident coming home from dancing at Club 17 with Tony! They danced with a group of friends as often as the could. Hopefully your dancing in heaven Tony.
    Until we meet again.

    On heaven’s dance floor
    Keep the music of your favourite waltz and fox trot playing
    Keep your dance card full
    And keep dancing the night away
