WINFRIED HORST MUELTIN October 10, 1938 - January 29, 2013 In his 75th year, dad died suddenly on Tuesday, January 29, 2013. Beloved father of Claudia (MCCaffrey), father-in-law of James and adored grandpa of Evan and Lauren. Winfried was the devoted husband of Edith who predeceased him in 1995. Dad had extended family and many friends here in the GTA and in the US, who emigrated from Germany or Austria to build a life of opportunity, just as dad and mom had in 1959. Dad is now at peace, after waging a 4-year fight against lung cancer that never broke his determination or his confidence to still enjoy and live his life to the fullest. Much appreciation and thanks to Drs. Susanna Cheng, Yee Ung and Hyon Kim of Sunnybrook Odette Cancer Centre who helped to manage dad's cancer since 2009. And to the many very competent and compassionate nurses both from Odette and St. Elizabeth home nursing, thank you, your support and care will never be forgotten. And a very special thanks to MagdaIene Winterhoff from Odette - you have been a wonderful sounding board since the first day we met. Visitation will be at the Visitation Centre in Mount Pleasant Cemetery, 375 Mount Pleasant Road (east gate entrance) on Sunday, February 3rd from 2-5 p.m. and Monday, February 4th from 11 a.m. - 12 p.m. Service to follow in the Chapel at 12 p.m. with a lunch reception immediately following. Private interment will happen at a later date. Donations to Lung Cancer Canada, the Odette Cancer Centre or the Ian Anderson House in Winfried's memory would be greatly appreciated.
