Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • Dear Sandra and family! Reinhard and I are so sad about Ben's passing! Ben has been Reinhard's best friend, bar none, for the last 30 years. From the day we first moved to Cooks Creek Reinhard has relied on Ben for his expertise when it came to anything farm related! We have been sitting here in the Okanagan and reminiscing about your dear Dad! He was one of a kind and we will miss him dearly, none more so than Reinhard. - Posted by: Ingrid and Reinhard butenschon (Friends) on: Sep 14, 2019

  • I will always remember a quiet man who had a love of nature raising birds and bees. Thanks for those memories. - Posted by: Tia Beakley (Caring Person) on: Sep 14, 2019

  • So sorry to hear of your loss, thoughts and prayers with the family - Posted by: Brenda and Gord Mitchell (friend) on: Sep 12, 2019
