HEINZ KERBER
1925-2013
MR. HEINZ HELMUT HORST KERBER, beloved husband of Mrs. Margarete Kerber, passed away at the Chinook Regional Hospital on Friday, July 5, 2013 at the age of 88 years. Heinz Helmut Horst Kerber was born in Querbach, Schlesien Germany on January 20, 1925 to Richard & Minna Kerber, the second of five children. At the age of 17, he followed in his brother Alfred’s footsteps, and volunteered to serve his country in World War II, receiving his discharge in May 1946. In 1948 he married Margarete Pauline Menger at Marienheide, West Germany. On Feb. 28 of this year, they celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary, a milestone not many achieve. In 1956 Heinz and Margarete immigrated to Canada, settling in the Lethbridge area.
In Germany, he was a stone mason, building fireplaces, and once he arrived in Canada he had many labor related jobs until he became a floor layer. He worked for several companies as a floor layer until 1961 when he started Heinz Kerber Floors. This would evolve into Kerber Floors Ltd., and is still in operation today. He loved to work, whether it was on the job site, or at home. He always enjoyed gardening and even planted one this spring. The weeds never had a chance to grow as he checked it every day. Time spent in the mountains was his favourite pastime, whether it was just for a drive, picking rocks for their patio and his “Berlin Wall”, or to hunt or fish. He got his last moose at the age of 86 in the fall of 2011, with son Jonn, an accomplishment he was very proud of. He shared many memories of hunting and fishing with his sons, and usually had photos to back up the stories. There were no ‘fish tales’ with Dad, he had proof of his efforts.
Dad enjoyed life to the fullest, skidooing, riding his motorcycle, golfing and travelling. He was also a pretty keen card player, spending many hours playing German Rummy with family. Sundays will never be the same Dad, but we know you’ll always be watching over each one of us. We’re sure going to miss you.
He is survived by their six children: Brigitte (Ray), Peter (Sherryl), Udo (Debbie), Jonn (Carrie), Rosie (Ed), Ted (Kathy); 14 Grandchildren, and 8 Great Grandchildren. Also surviving him are his brother Walter (Mary), sister Lotte (Werner), brother-in-law Leo, and numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents Richard & Minna, and brothers Alfred and Horst (Annie).
At Heinz’ request, a private family service was held. For those who wish, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Heart Function Clinic c/o Chinook Regional Hospital (960-19 Street South, Lethbridge, AB T1J 1W5).

He joined the Lethbridge City Police Force in 1951, first walking the beat, then becoming a Detective and later promoted to Detective Sergeant until he retired after 35 years of faithful service to the Police Department. He was very proud of his career as a police officer and gained many friendships throughout his life.
While he was still a police officer, he pursued another career as a tree farmer and in 1976 started Green Haven Tree Farm, which is now the well known Green Haven Garden Centre. He was proud to be active in his business with his wife, daughters and son-in-law. He loved to be close to nature and enjoyed working with trees, plants, flowers and especially people.
Over 26 years ago, Irvin and Lyla dedicated their lives to the Savior, Jesus Christ. Irvin spent many wonderful years sharing the gospel through guest speaking at functions and witnessing to others.

PAVLIS
MR. FRANK EMIL PAVLIS, passed away at the Chinook Regional Hospital on Thursday, July 11, 2013 at the age of 77 years.
Frank is predeceased by his loving wife Margaret, his mother Helen, father Frank, grandfather John and grandmother Annastella.
Frank is survived by his devoted daughter Natalie, niece Cyndi (James) and great-niece Cianna and many family and friends.
Frank was born in Raymond on November 12, 1935 and raised by his grandmother after the tragic loss of his mother. He farmed near Turin for 35 years specializing in cattle, beets and grain.
It was love at first sight when he met Margaret Gomany in 1966. The Czech farm boy quickly turned the Hungarian beauty into a farm girl. In 1971 they welcomed the arrival of bouncing baby girl Natalie, who stole her daddy’s heart.
Frank was down to earth and pragmatic and lived the lesson, “if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.” He was a kindhearted man and had a natural gentleness.
After he retired from farming in 1989 he spent his time golfing, fishing and curling. He was chiefly proud of his two hole-in-ones at the Picture Butte Golf Club and curling an “eight-ender” in Coaldale. He loved fishing in the mountains and at Duck Lake. Frank loved opera, particularly La Bohème, He enjoyed watching sports of all kinds, particularly baseball and hockey.
Special thanks to all the caring health care professionals in Calgary and Lethbridge who helped make this difficult journey a little easier.
