Obituary for Alex Rehberg
Alexander (Alex) Rehberg
February 28, 1928 – October 23, 2017
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved dad and Opa, Alex Rehberg.
Alex is survived by his wife of 60 years, Ruth, sons Alvin and Harry (Lynda), grandchildren Trina (Bruce), Hayley (Lars), Steven and Natalie, and great-grandchildren Taven and Hudson. He is also survived by his sister Olga, sister-in-law Berta, brother-in-law Fritz and numerous nieces and nephews.
Alex was predeceased by his parents, his brothers Karl, Eduard and Friedrich, and sisters Maria (Raedcher) and Josephine (Klatt).
Alex was born in Koplanow, Ukraine and later, during WWII, moved to Germany with his family. In 1955, Alex came to Canada and met his future wife. Alex and Ruth were married on March 2, 1957 at the original St. Peter’s Evangelical Church, a congregation they remained members of through the years.
Alex worked at Labatt brewery in Winnipeg until his retirement. He was also a longtime member of the German Society of Winnipeg and a proud former mayor of Folklorama’s German pavilion. He loved spending time at “the German club,” as well as gardening, watching his favourite soap opera, and enjoying his coffee and cake.
In August 2017, Alex became a resident of Maples Personal Care Home, where he passed with his family by his side. His family wishes to extend their sincere appreciation to the staff, whose caring and compassion greatly helped Alex and his family through his final months. The family would also like to thank Dr. Bialy for the excellent care he provided Alex.
In lieu of flowers, Alex’s family would appreciate donations to the Alzheimer Society of Canada.
Wir lieben dich, Opa. Always missed, never forgotten.
