Horst Walter Jaekel

JAEKEL, Horst - Having lived a full life, Horst fell asleep peacefully at home February 19, 2022 at the age of 90 after a brief illness. Horst came to Canada as a young family man and made a life in the suburbs of Montreal for many years before joining his daughter in Perth. An avid soccer fan, model train enthusiast and armchair birdwatcher, Horst enjoyed the outdoors and travelling having explored Canada and the U.S.A via many road trips. Predeceased by brothers and wife, dear father of Robert (Khamela) and Sabine, Uncle of Anne (Andre) and Uwe, he will be missed and remembered fondly by family and friends in Germany and throughout Canada. Special thanks to his doctor and daily home care nurses as well as the wonderful neighbours who never failed to smile, wave and send good wishes his way. "Meanwhile the world goes on. Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air, are heading home again" Services will be held privately by the family.
