Obituary of Henry Reimer
Peacefully, after a long life of 97 years, our Uncle Henry was called away from his home at Bethesda Place in Steinbach, MB to be with his wife and Lord Jesus Christ.
Left to mourn are four nieces, four nephews and their families.
He was predeceased by wife Lydia (nee Harms) parents Peter & Maria Reimer, sister Nettie in 1920, sister Maria in 1924, brother John Reimer (Pauline Reimer), sister Sadie Dyck (John Dyck), sister Nina Carter (Jim Carter), and sister Helen Reimer.
Henry and his brother John Reimer owned the Steinbach Sanitation truck business, which later they sold to the Town of Steinbach in 1960. Uncle Henry then went to join the team at Penner Transfer as a long-distance truck driver, where he made many miles in the big truck. He was awarded a model truck for his dedication and driving with accident free/million mile club.
If he could have he would have driven his truck to Heaven to meet his Saviour.
Henry married Lydia (nee Harms) later in life. They shared 52 or so years together until Lydia passed away a few years ago.
A special thanks to all the staff at Bethesda Place.
