Otto Wilhelm Paflik

Passed away peacefully in Peace Arch Hospital on January 24, 2005 after a lengthy illness.

Otto was born in Vienna, Austria (1918) and became a proud Canadian and lived in North Vancouver and White Rock for many years.

He was a warm and generous person who will be sadly missed by his brother Karl in Austria and his relatives as well as many friends in Canada.

Otto worked for many years with the North Vancouver School Board where he expressed his fondness for children through dedication, love and care.

It was his wish that in lieu of flowers, donations in his memory may be made to the British Columbia Children’s Hospital Foundation.

A Catholic Funeral Mass was held at the Star of the Sea Parish, 1153 Fir Street in White Rock on Tuesday, February 1st at 2:00 om with public visitation 1 hour prior to the Mass service.

An interment followed at the Gardens of Gethsemani cemetery, where Otto will join his beloved wife Margarete who predeceased him February 28, 2001.

“Forever in our hearts.”
