It is with heavy hearts that the family of Erich Koenig announce the loss of a most loved and cherished man on March 30, 2023 at the age of 90 years. Erich was born July 17, 1932, in Ostrowite, Poland to Ludwig and Ida Koenig. In 1949, he was in Germany for a short time and then immigrated to Canada in 1951, settling in Redcliff. In 1960, he married Hildegard Schüle, built their home, and raised their family in Redcliff. Erich worked for more than 45 years at the Redcliff Pressed Brick retiring as their maintenance man repairing the presses and modifying the presses for the different sizes and styles of bricks. For 65 years, he was a proud resident of Redcliff until ill health prompted a move to The Good Samaritan Society in Medicine Hat. Erich is predeceased by his wife, Hildegard (almost 57 years of marriage); his parents, Ludwig and Ida; his three sisters, Amanda, Lydia, and Olga; and his two brothers, Fritz and Edwin. Left to mourn his passing is his daughter, Christina; his two sons, Harold (Laura) and Michael and his one and only very special grandson, Brennan. Those who wish to attend the graveside service are asked to meet at the columbarium in the Redcliff Cemetery on Saturday, April 8, 2023 at 11:30 a.m. Rev. Don Scott will officiate. If you are unable to come to the cemetery, please feel free to go to the Redcliff Legion where the family will join you following the interment service.
