Werner Falk

September 30, 1929 - October 30, 2013

Tribute

 
Werner passed peacefully into the presence of his Lord on October 30th, 2013. He was born on September 30, 1929 in Rosthern, Saskatchewan to Henry and Margaret Falk, the second of eight children, one of whom died in infancy. When he was six years old the family moved to BC, settling first in Black Creek and then in Arnold.  It was here that he met Margaret Willms, who he married in 1954. During the next several years three daughters were born to them.
Werner was a schoolteacher and later, a social worker.  In addition to his work, he enjoyed many hobbies, including riding motorcycle, playing the organ, fishing, oil-painting, and writing.  He started a wood-carving club which eventually became the Central Fraser Valley Woodcarvers.  Whenever he could, he’d help his children with work that needed doing around their homes.  He and Margaret were active in the catering committee at Bakerview MB Church, sang in the seniors’ choir and served as deacons.  Werner also led a seniors’ Bible Study and started a seniors’ program in the church.
In January 1988, Werner retired from his social work career but continued to work part-time as an adoption study worker for a private organization and later volunteered at MCC.  At church, he organized seniors’ bus tours—a favourite destination was Chemainus where they watched many plays.
Predeceased by Margaret in 2011, Werner leaves to mourn his three daughters, Cheryl (Ben Wall) and their children Charissa and Geoffrey; Coleen (Gord Lint) and their children Thomas (Roxi), Alison (Ben), Jared (Chandelle), and Brandon; Janet (Raynold Nickel) and their children Mollee, Tessa (Aaron), Sydney (Chris), and Madison, and five great-grandchildren (Ana, Jakob, Jackson, Amelia, and Hudson), as well as siblings and many friends.
