I am a cook at the gardens of Parry sound. Hans was a resident and a very lovely man. I am so sorry for your loss. He will be missed greatly.

Hans, our dear friend from Deep Bay! Mornings were not complete without a dock visit with Hans in his kayak and me in the water! He would tell me his favourite poets and insist that I read them. His kindnesses were unparalleled. When my dad was in hospice, Hans quietly dropped by and snuck a small branch of pine from the Bay for Dad to smell. A simple gesture which will never be forgotten. Your Dad will always occupy a space in my heart.

My condolences to the family and to Peter, my colleague and friend at Parks Canada. I never met Hans in person, but I've always enjoyed the stories that Peter shared with me about his Dad. I'm pretty sure "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree". Hugs.

My deepest condolences to all the family. Hans and Gert have been our dear friends since 1993 when they volunteered at the hospital. Enjoyed our times out on the bay, at Killbear and just visiting over a cup of tea with special cookies. Will cherish the memories.


Hans and I shared a table at the Gardens. I enjoyed our conversations during mealtimes. My condolences to his family.

A sweet man. Great neighbor who baked wonderful cakes and invited you to enjoy great conversations. There for you when you needed him. Will be missed just like his lovely wife.

Even though my relationship with Hans was short I remember him with great respect. Hans always said Jesus was his best friend. I say goodbye to Hans with a poem by Ralph Waldo Emerson: All Return Again.
