Dec 16, 1927 – Mar 21, 2018
Wunsch, Ulrich (Uli)
Uli passed away peacefully at Harmony Care Home on Wednesday March 21, 2018 at the age of 90 years.
He was born in Torun Poland on Dec 16, 1927. He spent his childhood on the family farm there but after WWII he took the opportunity for a new life in Canada. He immigrated to Barrhead, AB in 1948 and was joined by Ursula a few years later. They later moved off the farm to Calgary with their two young boys where Uli went to SAIT and studied Construction Technology then settled in Red Deer. There Uli and Ursula began Timcon Construction and with the help of its dedicated staff the company prospered. Uli was a longtime supporter of the Red Deer Construction Association and lifelong member of the Red Deer German Canadian Club. Amongst his many other interests Uli enjoyed fishing, playing skat with his friends, travelling and working in his garden.
Uli was predeceased by his wife Ursula (2014) and brother Hermann (1999). He will be lovingly remembered by his sons Dirk (Beryl) and York, grandchildren Hanna, Thomas and Joshua, brother Gerhard (Ursel) in Berlin, Sister in Law Gertrude in St. Albert and many nieces, nephews, friends and relatives in both Canada and Germany.
The family would like to thank the staff at Harmony Care Home for the wonderful care they took of Uli and all of his visitors this past year.
A Memorial Service will be held at Eventide Funeral Home 4820-45 Street, Red Deer, on Thursday March 29th at 1:00 pm.
