Loving husband of the late Katharina (2016). Dear father of the late Ingrid (1988) and by Ingrid’s daughter, Krystal (2022). Michael will be deeply missed by his daughter, Heidi (the late son-in-law Luis in 2010) his beloved “enkteltochters”, Kelsey and Kolina (fiancée Erik).
Michael was born in Draas, Transylvania. He was the oldest child of seven children Anna (2007), John (Katie), Andreas (1983), Sara (Henri-1997) Matthew (Nancy), and baby sister Greta (Erwin). He immigrated to Canada in 1948 and proudly boasted that he was the first member of his community to own a 1926 Chevrolet. Michael was a proud founding member of the Transylvania Club Kitchener and the former Pilgrim Lutheran Church. He worked tirelessly his whole life to provide for his family.
