March 22, 1940 – January 6, 2020
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a deeply loved husband, father and grandfather. He was a true warrior but after years of failing health, God called him to his eternal home on the morning of January 6th. He will long be remembered for his love of family, friends, devotion and generosity to favourite charities, vivacious laughter and love of cars, gardening and sports.
He leaves behind Karen, his wife of 47 years, and their children: Kimberley (Clint) Ironmonger, Jordan (Amanda) Froelich, Justin (Victoria) Froelich; and grandchildren: Dobson, Alexa, Makena, Fraser and Koehn. Otto will also be missed by sisters: Edyth (Michael) Kutney, Herta Willans, Charlotte Rebman and brother Bill (Elvina) Froelich; brother-in-law Ken Dobson and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. He was predeceased by his parents and sister Irma.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 11 am on January 24, 2020 at Peace Portal Alliance Church in South Surrey. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Otto Froelich Endowed Scholarship at Trinity Western University, 7600 Glover Road, Langley, BC V2Y1Y1 or online at www.twu.ca/donate-now
