It is with great sadness that the family of Manfred Erich Schmalfuss announces his sudden passing on August 18, 2012 at Trail Regional Hospital. He was born on November 15, 1934 in Planitz-Zwickau, Germany. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 48 years, Marianne Schmalfuss, his daughter, Michele Creak ( husband Tony Creak), grandchildren, Christopher Lenson, Jeremy Lenson, Amanda Creak and Joshua Creak. Manfred worked in various sawmills as a millwright and planer man both in Prince George, Nelson and Castlegar where many nicknamed him “hammer” because anything could be fixed with a hammer. He enjoyed working in his yard and prided himself in his wine making.
A memorial service will be held on Friday, August 24, 2012 @ 2:00pm at Thompson Funeral Home.
