Sr.; age 87;
It is with great sadness that we announce

peacefully at home, on Sunday, November 12, 2017. Rudi was born in
1930, in Erlangen, Germany a son of the late Wilhelm Gerhardt
Loeffler, and Anne Mueller-Neuhaus. He is survived by his wife,
Leanora Elizabeth (Bette) Loeffler (Corbett); children, Debbie (Ron)
Welton, Michelle ( Ace ) Powell, Rudi ( Gudi ) Loeffler; three
grandchildren, two step-grandchildren, eleven great-grandchildren, and
many nieces & nepews; siblings, Hertha ( Guenther )
Gebhardt, Jemseg, NB, Jutta Seifert, Germany,Werner (
Anneliese ) Mueller-Neuhaus, Germany, Dieter (Claire ) Mueller,
Denmark, NS, Anneliese Zuegec , Germany, Wilhelm Mueller-Neuhaus,
Germany. He lived his early years in Franconia, Germany where he took
a trade as a mechanic. His sense of adventure took him to Canada with
a working Visa through Pier 21, Halifax in 1951. He started his long
working career at a Gold Mine in Perron Quebec as a Millwright, where
he met his wife of 65 years, Bette. His career in the construction
industry started with Comstock International when he and Bette moved
to Ontario in 1952, and then, on to Manitoba and Saskatchewan in 1955,
where he continued working for Comstock , and soon became a regional
Superintendent of the Western Division. He spoke often of his close
friends and colleges that he met during this time, and stayed in touch
with them through the years. In 1967 he moved to Nova Scotia, with his
wife and 3 children, where they purchased a farm which he operated
until 1983, while also working for Comstock starting in 1977 as a
superintendent for the Eastern office. When HMW Industries acquired a
Machine shop in Truro, in 1980, he was recruited as General Manager,
and then for a short period of time to Maloney Steel until 1983. In
1982 he established Kenomee Log Homes Ltd., which was his defining
accomplishment as an entrepreneur. Until his passing; Rudi was still
involved with the day to day operations of Kenomee. Rudi
proudly built and shipped log homes throughout Canada, USA, Europe,
and Asia. Kenomee Log Homes still continues to fulfill
Rudi’s legacy under family management. Construction &
Manufacturing were his passion. Although work was his main Hobby, he
had a great inquisitive mind for innovation and design, enjoyed
traveling, and even took time for bass fishing in his later years.
Many thanks to all the Doctors and Nurses, and VON for all the care
that they provided. A very special thank you to Dr. Karen Ewing for
