MARX, Werner Manfred Tuesday, 07 Sep 2004
Feb. 10 1942 - Sept. 7, 2004
Werner Manfred Marx passed away on Tuesday, September 7 at the age of 62 at Kamloops Royal Inland Hospital. Werner was born to Lydia and Emil Marx in Cologne, Germany on 10 February 1942. He is survived by his loving wife Ruth; daughters Brenda and Carol (Frank); stepson Charlie; sister Edith (Hans); brother Rolf (Claire); sisters-in-law Marie Hicknell and Pat Corman; and brother-in-law Keith (Jocelyn) Manley; several nieces and nephews in Ontario and Germany; and grandchildren Rene, Nicole, Erica, Daniel, Alyssa, Kayla and Stephen. He was predeceased by his mother and father, brother Emile, father-in-law Joe Manley, and brothers-in-law Francis Hicknell and Murray Corman. Werner emigrated to Canada in 1960, living in St. Mary’s, Ontario. He moved to B.C. in January 1965, and ran a successful electrical contracting business in Vancouver for a number of years, but ill health forced a change in lifestyle, so he and Ruth semi-retired to Deka Lake in April of 1992. Werner was a volunteer who truly believed in helping his fellow man, and he epitomized this as the Chairman of the Deka Lake and District Fire Commission, President of the Deka Lake and District Ratepayers Association, deputy leader of the Deka Lake and District Citizens on Patrol, and organizer and chief honcho of the Deka Lake Crib Club. As well, he was always “on call” to his many friends and neighbours who it seems always had a problem that Werner could fix. A funeral mass was held to honour and remember Werner on Sat., Sept. 11 at St. Judes Catholic Church on Horse Lake Road. Interment was at the Roe Lake Cemetery on Tues., Sept. 14. In lieu of flowers, donations will be gratefully accepted by the Deka Lake and District Fire Department to be used to procure new equipment for the firemen.
