Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • Peter and I are saddened to hear that Willy your Dad has passed away. Will be thinking of you all as the days go by! Wishing you God’s peace ❤️ - Posted by: Peter/Marianne Toews (Neighbour and church friend ) on: Oct 17, 2020

  • Willy was a man with a plan. When he came to Ontario we took Mary and him to our cottage. He was an avid fisherman and enjoyed the fellowship of most of the cousins who had a cottage there too. He enjoyed the fishing the most with Ignat, but also all the wonderful German food. WE HAD SUCH A GREAT TIME SPENT WITH THEM, He always had time for Matte and lots of laughter. He will be truly missed. Condolences from all the Kopeschny family here and all the cousins in Ontario. May God comfort you at this sad time and yet Willy is at peace with His Master and may the Lord bless you and hold you in the hollow of his Hand. - Posted by: ignat kopeschny (cousin) on: Oct 17, 2020
