Egon Robert Hoffmann June 7, 1916 - March 13, 2014 Egon was born on June 7, 1916 in Wikowischken, Lithuania and passed away peacefully at home on March 13, 2014. He is survived by his wife of 60 years Herta, his children - Edgar (Patricia), Edwin, Dagmar Morin, and his grandchildren - Steven (Sarah), Matthew (Yuliya), Brandon and Krystal.
Egon grew up in Lithuania and Germany and immigrated to Canada in 1951. He brought Herta to Canada and they were married in 1953. He was proud to see his children and grandchildren grow to be happy and successful. His greatest joy was working in his garden, growing his vegetables and tending his flowers. A life well lived - he is now at peace in his garden.
The family wishes to thank the caregivers at St. Elizabeth who took such wonderful care of him over the last year and the staff at Burnaby General and Royal Columbian hospitals.
A private family service will be held. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Royal Columbian or Burnaby General Hospital.
