1 June, 1936 – 24 March, 2021
With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Gerhard (Gerry) Limpach on March 24, 2021
Dad was a cabinetmaker born in Germany in 1936. He immigrated to Canada in 1957 and began working for Doerksen and Gronau before moving on to Woodland Supply. He married the love of his life Adi in 1970. They raised 5 children together.
Dad was a master woodworker. He spent many hours behind his drafting board creating plans for the homes he built. The craftsmanship in his homes often had people in awe of his talents. He also enjoyed creating furnishings; the possibilities were endless as to what he could create. He worked endlessly and put his whole heart into anything he built, for him it was labor of love.
Dad was a man of many talents from painting artwork, to flying planes. He was very proud of his achievements especially his pilot's license as it was one of his dreams come true.
Dad loved the outdoors, his favorite time of year was fall, it meant duck hunting with his family and labrador retrievers. His eyes would light up telling you stories of his adventures in the marsh. Almost as much as he loved to hunt, he loved fishing and enjoyed many more adventures with his good friend Bruce.
Dad loved to travel, he wintered in Mexico during his retirement making many friends and wonderful memories with Mom.
Dad had a strong faith and was an elder in the Lutheran Church. He was the lay Pastor for the Good Sheppard Lutheran Church in Kenora for many years.
He was predeceased by his parents Kurt and Hildegard Limpach. He is survived by his loving wife of 50 years, Adolfine. His children Gerhard (Angi), Karen, Christine (Todd), Astrid (Leslie), Genevieve (Robert) and numerous grandchildren.
Many thanks to family and friends, your support is appreciated.
In lieu of flowers, please donate to Parkinsons research or your favorite charity.
Dad, you are forever in our hearts, we love you and miss you.

Adi and Gerry were great neighbours and even better friends to the Fox family for some 40 years. The families shared some of the tragedies but also the greatest joys of life.
Gerry will be missed. He was a man for all seasons but an even better gentleman.
May he rest in the arms of his Lord.

Our love & thoughts are with the family & the neighbors on Tresoor Point Rd.
Gerry was an amazing man. His talent for woodworking was awe-inspiring & his home is one of his many legacies.
My Dad called him brother & valued their close friendship & their many adventures over the years.
We have many great memories of our trip to Mexico years ago. We went with my parents & stayed in the same building as Adi & Gerry. We were so well looked after & felt like we were there visiting family.
We are so fortunate to have known him & to have the Limpach family in our lives. xoxo
