Relation: Worked together

Robert, I’m sorry to read about your dad’s death. He was a special person in my life.
I met Hans in Terrace around 1967 when we were both employed by Columbia Cellulose (Twin River Timber). He was a logging manager and I was a green young forest engineer.
I am forever grateful for the attention and kind mentoring he gave to me. Hans was a world class mentor!
Hans and I met and crossed paths again in the 1980s and 1990s at Interfor. He became an Area Logging Manager and in these years he reported directly to me. He was a wonderful support to me in his outstanding performance as a mentor for young people at Interfor.
Many many future stars at Interfor were mentored by Hans.
He will be remembered by many people, myself included.

From: Mark & Tillie Manthey
Relation: friend of our parents

Our sincere condolences Robert
