Erich J. Hensch

April 23, 1925 ~ December 16, 2011

With deepest sadness the family of Erich J. Hensch announces his passing on December 16, 2011 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s. Erich leaves to mourn his wife, Phyllis, daughters Maryann (Bill) and Linda (Kevin), grandchildren Breanne, Martina (Collen) and Ryan, great-grandchildren Kalista and Aiden and many friends. Erich was born in Switzerland and moved to Canada in 1950. Erich and family moved to Sechelt in 1964 where Erich became District Manager of BC Hydro on the Sunshine Coast, retiring in 1986.

Erich was always a source of strength and comfort to his family and a caring, loving husband and father. Erich loved people, had a good sense of humour and loved singing with the occasional yodel.

A memorial will be announced at a later date. Please feel free to contribute to the Alzheimer’s Society of BC in Erich’s name.
