Guenther, Dr. Herbert  
Herbert Guenther - January 11, 1921 to May 12, 2015 We announce that in his 94th year, Herbert Guenther passed away on May 12, 2015. Herb was born in 1921 in Russia of German Mennonite parents. The Guenthers immigrated to Canada in 1925 and settled to a sugarbeet farm in Coaldale, Alberta. They came to BC when Herb was a teenager. He met Margaret Epp at the Mennonite Brethern Church in Vancouver. They were married within six months on September 25, 1942. Herb joined the Canadian Air Force and was stationed in Scotland. He later studied at UBC and went on for his dental training in Portland where he graduated in 1951. Herb had a dental clinic in Burnaby until he retired in the early 1980's. He believed in education and volunteered for the BC Youth Foundation as its secretary for years. He also loved to golf and was a member of the Vancouver Golf Club where the family enjoyed many special occasions. Herb was admitted to Evergreen House a year ago where he died peacefully with his loving wife, of 72 years, at his bedside. He is predeceased by his parents, David and Anna, his brothers, David and Walde and his sister, Anne. He is survived by his wife Margaret, three children - Dennis (Marion), Debbie (Dave), Eldon (Karen), seven grandchildren - Geoffrey (Jamie), Jennie (James), Geordie (Darlene), Meghan (Bobby), Travis (Lin), Spencer and Jacy (Sam) and twelve great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his sister, Peggy. Herb was loved by his family and we will miss him very much. The family would like to thank the nurses and staff at Evergreen Hospital and Dr. Andrew Lee. We welcome friends to celebrate Herb's life at the Boal Chapel, 1505 Lillooet Rd, North Vancouver, Friday May 22 at 2:00 pm.
