Nikolaus “Klaus” Linemayr

September 5th, 1933 – June 28th, 2013

It is with saddened hearts that we announce the passing of Klaus Linemayr. We cherish the days full of smiles and laughter during his struggle with cancer and that he was able to return home to pass away peacefully with his wife, Doris by his side.

Klaus will be lovingly remembered by his wife; Doris, to whom he was married for 34 years, his children; Irene (Klaus) Messner, Christa (Rudi) Mostl, Karen (Joshuah) Langner and Steven Linemayr, 7 grandchildren, 2 great-grandchildren and countless extended family members and friends from Vernon to Austria to Singapore.

Klaus was born in Austria and immigrated to Canada in 1964. He made his way out west settling in Vernon in 1978. He had a passion for building houses and friendships, particularly in the Special Needs community in which he was a tireless volunteer.

Please join us as we celebrate Klaus’ inspirational love for life, people and God at Trinity United Church (3300 Alexis Park Drive) on Monday, July 8th, 2013 at 2:00 P.M.
