We Remember

VOGT, Harry

April 11, 1935 — October 18, 2023

At the age of 88, on October 18, 2023, Harry Vogt went to be with the Lord with his loving family by his side to send him off.

On April 11, 1935, Harry came into this world in Friedensruh, Fernheim, Paraguay. He spent his foundational years there in the care of his parents, John and Margaret Vogt. When Harry was 18, his family relocated to Canada and settled in Vancouver, BC.

Six years later, in 1959, Harry wed Lydia Dyck, and together they raised three children in the Interior of BC.  Harry provided for his family through his proficient carpentry skills.

The predominant passion in his life was devoted to serving God, his family, and his deep affection for music. His accordion not only brought joy to him, but also to his family.

His legacy of sharing the realness of Christ will forever be cherished.

Harry’s spirit has joined those of his four siblings: Hugo, Lilly, Otto, and John.  His family continues to thrive: his children, Karen (David) Ehrhardt, Sharon (Denys) Scully, and Mark (Twyla) Vogt; his five grandchildren, Cara (Yohannes), Michelle (Colin), Brianna (Johnathan), Devon, and Lauren; and his eight grandchildren, Hadassah, Ariella, Isabella, Lydia, Jasielle, Justice, Judah, and Elowyn; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

A private service will be held by the family to honour Harry.
