Wolfgang H. Huwe was born on September 6, 1942 in Berlin, Germany. He passed away peacefully on January 27, 2024 at Eagle Ridge Hospital, Port Moody, BC, with his loving family by his side. He is survived by his wife Angelica, his children Michael and Monica (Shawn), grandchildren Mikey, Ashlin, Ava and his great granddaughter Charlotte.
Wolfgang began his career in Berlin as a draftsman engineer and as a Millwright. After moving to Canada, he eventually settled in Princeton BC, where he raised his family. He later moved to Coquitlam, BC where he lived for a number of years before retiring.
Wolfgang was extremely intelligent and an adept problem-solver whose skilled craftsmanship was very admired and respected. He could fix and build anything. Although Wolfgang worked very hard all of his life, he took time to enjoy and explore his interests. He had a great passion for soccer, swimming, travelling, photography, gardening, landscaping, carpentry, camping and the outdoors in general. He was happy to teach and share his skills and knowledge.
Wolfgang was a talented and creative artist as he did many oil paintings on canvas which will always remind us of his memory. He also had an amazing sense of humour which brought much laughter to all of us.
Family was very important to Wolfgang. He was a great husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. Wolfgang especially cherished his grandchildren. He was a very devoted, loving Opa who always made special time for his grandchildren, all of whom, loved him immensely.
He will be fondly remembered and missed dearly by his family.
We will always carry your memory in our hearts.
Prayers will be offered at 11:00am on Saturday February 17, 2024 at Oliveira Funeral Chapel.
