In Loving Memory of Jacob Willms
Jacob Willms Born Nov. 26, 1937
Passed away peacefully in his sleep in Abbotsford, B.C. April 19, 2019
Our Opa was born in Paraguay South America in Filadelfia, Colonia Fernheim
Married in 1961 to Kaethe Goetz starting a family newly into his marriage with the addition of his son Arnold and daughter Eleonore
He brought his young family to Winnipeg Manitoba from South America in 1966. With his strong work ethic he was able to land work quickly as a machinist and although there were struggles at the beginning it wasn’t long before deep roots were planted in a new country
Finally having enough of an endless winter in Winnipeg he packed up his family again and moved to Abbotsford, B.C. in 1979 to start a new chapter for himself and his family in a much warmer part of Canada
Opa believed as the provider of the family that he must always work hard, amazing coworkers with his strength and abilities to move heavy objects himself rather then wait for help.
He enjoyed camping, crashing his computer, puzzles, making his grandkids laugh with his dry wit usually not appropriate and early morning Matte.
Still in his prime as a man he was faced with a heart disease that challenged him for the remainder of his life.
Survived by his loving wife of 58 years Kaethe, Son Arnie, (Marlene) Willms, daughter Elly, (Neil) Stratford , Grandchildren, Kevin (Joanne) Weibe , Laura, Derrick, Daniel and Aleah, Great grandchildren Mikayla and Brock
