The family of Samuel Wotzke is saddened to announce the passing of their beloved father on Tuesday, October 12, 2010 in Vernon, B.C. Sam was born on June 18, 1925 in Vanguard , Saskatchewan to Friedrich and Emilie Wotzke.
He is mourned by his four daughters: Marilyn (Wolfe) of Vernon, Irene (Gary) of Nanaimo, Darlene (Edward) of Vernon, and Sherry (Hiro) of Japan. Grandpa will be lovingly remembered by Chad, Evan, Erika, Grayson, Derek, and Sasha. Also left behind is his sister, Elsie, of Big Lake, B.C.; as well as several cousins, nephews, and nieces.
As a young man, Sam was a cowboy on the Harper Ranch , and in his later years returned to a rural life in Lavington. Our Dad was a kind and gentle man who enjoyed his family, his animals, country western music and the outdoors.
A private memorial will be held at a later date.
