LORENZ, George
April 9, 1927 - September 21, 2012
In 1955 George left his home place, Iffezheim, Germany and sailed to Canada to begin a new life. During the early years George worked in road building & construction and was a BC Park Ranger in Garibaldi Park in the 1960's. During his 25 years of working life George owned a very successful residential renovation business. George was an avid outdoorsman, mountain climber, gardener and wine maker. He was also a practicing musician and singer and could entertain a crowd. Family members remember his skills in cooking and baking. George ended his journey after being hospitalized for repeated lung ailments. He was predeceased by his first wife of 32 years, Louise Zitterstein. He will be sadly missed by his second wife Julie Holcapek, and numerous family members in Germany, friends and neighbours. According to his wishes there will be no service. A memorial is planned on October 20 in 'The Deutsches Haus" Vancouver Alpenclub, 4875 Victoria Drive, Vancouver.
