Quietly during the night of April 8, 2022, Henry Anders went to be with his Lord.
Henry was born on August 22, 1928 in Karczemka, Poland to Gustav and Ida Anders and was one of six children. Following the end of the Second World War, he migrated to Hillerse, Kreis Northeim in Germany. Here he accepted Jesus as his personal Saviour and on Easter 1948, was baptized by Pastor Kersten in Kassel.
In 1950, Henry, his sister Lydia and his parents immigrated to Canada, setting up a home in Morris, Manitoba. It was in Morris that Henry got to know the love of his life, Bertha Hoff, whom he married on August 2, 1952. They moved from Morris to Winnipeg in 1971. God blessed their marriage with three children, Richard, Karl and Otto; three daughters-in-law; seven grandchildren and five great- grandchildren.
Henry lost his beloved Bertha to cancer on October 4, 1991. She was deeply missed by Henry and her family and their lives would never be quite the same without her.
Henry is the last of his immediate family to pass away, after the death of his parents; brothers, Richard and Otto and sisters, Helen, Emmi and Lydia. Henry deeply grieved the untimely death of his oldest son Richard in 2008. Henry is survived by his two sons, Karl and Otto and the families of his three sons.
Henry loved his Saviour Jesus until he died and believed that he would be joining his wife Bertha, son Richard and the rest of his family, who had passed on before him.

Condolences & Memories (5 entries)

  • Our deepest condolences to Karl and Otto and their families from the Hoff family - Nick, William, Ruth and Harry. We have fond memories of many family get togethers in Morris and Wpg and spending time fishing and socializing at our cottages at Victoria Beach. Dad and Uncle Heinz were close friends in their retirement years, going on many trips to Hawaii and Swan River. I joined them on many mushroom picking trips and Uncle Heinz was always so friendly, positive and energetic. We always had a great time! I noticed in the pictures Uncle Heinz smoking fish at VB in the smoker he had custom built. I now own that smoker and every time I smoke fish I admire his solid craftsmanship and the many fond memories. Our deepest sympathies and condolences, Sincerely, Willi Hoff - Posted by: William Hoff (nephew) on: May 25, 2022

  • We are very sad to hear that our wonderful and very much loved neighbor Henny had passed on. We shared a close relationship untill we lost contact with Henry when he moved out of assisted living in Concordia Village. We were neighbors for over 10 years. We enjoyed getting together with Henry for his great BBQ cookouts. We loved Henry's sense of humor and positivity. RIP our sweet Henry. Deepest condolences to the whole family from Eva and Tom. - Posted by: Eva and Tom (Neighbors) on: May 08, 2022

  • I would like to offer my condolences to Karl, Otto and Onkel Heinz's grandchildren and great-grandchildren. I have a lot of great childhood memories of visiting the Anders in Morris and the family get togethers that we enjoyed growing up.

  • Just a note to give my condolences to the family on the passing of Heinz. It is great for your Dad to have gone to be with Jesus. However for the two sons — Karl and Otto and families, this is a sad time. We had many great times, especially those with Karl in Thousand Oaks and those with Otto in Thunder Bay. Blessings to all of you as you walk through these days without your Dad. - Posted by: Sharon Emmelkamp (Friend) on: Apr 12, 2022
