September 22, 1929 – December 11, 2021

Surrounded by loving family, the most remarkable man we know peacefully left us and we are heartbroken. Reinhard (Ron) touched many lives and will be lovingly remembered by so many people.
Left to mourn are his wife of 61 years, Eugenie (Pat) (nee Randall); his three daughters, Karen, Christine (Marcel) Girardin and Margaret-Ann (Ron) Hegdahl; his seven grandchildren, Kimberly (Chuck), Allan, Jacob, Daniel (Alana), Holly (Randy), Kamal and Janneh; his brother in Germany, Hermann Banek and his family, and many more extended family members, his cherished neighbours, his church friends and anyone else who knew him.
A heartfelt thank you to the Grace Hospital staff on 3-South for their kindness and compassion.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, December 18 at 10:00 a.m. at the Lutheran Church of the Cross, 560 Arlington Street, Winnipeg. At the family's request proof of vaccination and masks are required to attend the service.

Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • My sincere condolences to the family. We lived down the street for many years, and he was always out in the neighborhood delivering his papers and visiting along the way. Our family and his grew up together. He will be sadly missed. - Posted by: Shirley christie (Neighbor) on: Dec 27, 2021

  • Was very sorry to see that Reinhard passed away. Always loved seeing him at the clinic. We would talk about gardening and how his tomatoes were. He was a very nice man and we'll miss seeing him. - Posted by: Dianne and Kendra (Winnipeg Hearing) on: Dec 15, 2021

  • After sixteen years in New Haven, Connecticut, we retired back to Winnipeg. We little knew how fortunate we were to buy a house on Aspen Cove. Ron lived just a few doors down, and in his own quite way welcomed us and made us feel part of a neighborly community. As he delivered flyers, grew vegetables, or helped with snow removal throughout the neighborhood, there was little that he missed, and we all felt secure and blessed by his unobtrusive presence. He was a great man (but not a flashy one) in so many of the important ways. He is missed, but fondly remembered, as someone worth emulating in his quiet acts of goodness and neighborly kindness. May his legacy endure in those of us touched by his life. - Posted by: Jon and Jean Bonk (Neighbor) on: Dec 15, 2021
