It is with great sadness, that we announce the sudden passing of our Dad and Grandpa Herman Kars on December 27, 2020.
Left to mourn are children, Ernie, and Barb (Gerald Guilbeault); grandkids, Andrew, Mathew, Amanda and Daniel.
He was predeceased by our mom Ethel in 2013.
Dad was born December 15, 1936 in the Netherlands and moved to Canada when he was 12 years old. Mom and Dad married
October 16, 1965. Dad worked for the City of Winnipeg for 22 years and on weekends he worked for Don Lawrence. He also started a greenhouse as a hobby which soon turned into a family business for 25 years. He also
enjoyed helping Ernie and Joyce Watts
farming and later Ernie combining. Dad
enjoyed camping and they went to Dauphin Country Fest for 10 years. Dad curled in
Balmoral for many years. Dad loved spending time with his grandkids, he was always proud of their accomplishments. He spent a lot of his spare time building Purple Martin Houses. After Mom's passing Dad moved to Cedar Lodge, where he made many friends playing cards and Bingo. Just recently Dad moved to Gateway Manor where he could
enjoy their delicious meals everyday. Every Saturday morning, he would go to Ernie's for coffee and every Sunday to Barb and Gerald's for pancakes and watch a movie, his favourite being Dennis the Menace.
Special thanks to the staff at Gateway and Seniors Resource. You always made him feel welcome. Thanks to Dr. Graham and Kim for Dad's care. Thank you to the EMS that
responded Sunday, your care and compassion was truly appreciated. Thank you to Ken Loehmer for his guidance. Also thank you to Shirley Williams for her kind words at the cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba.
Due to Covid 19, no service will be held.
