Armin Wilke

1934 - 2023

Passed away peacefully on Monday, January 23, 2023 at Grey Bruce Health Services Wiarton. He is predeceased by his beautiful wife Inge Wilke (2021), and survived by his children, Christian Wilke, and grandsons Quinn and Hunter, Stephanie Mollet and son-in-law Trent and grandsons Clyde and Gavyn, and Jennifer Bonadonna and son-in-law Charles. He is also survived by his 4 siblings, Roswitha, Frank, Ute, and Elke. Armin had a colourful life, coming from Germany to Canada, working as a lumberjack, typewriter repairman, and a paint specialist, then meeting and falling in love with his bride of 52 years. They started a family in Toronto before moving up to the beautiful Georgian Bay area to enjoy the rest of his life there. Armin was generous, intelligent, honest, curious, well read, loyal, affectionate, funny, hardworking, very family oriented and an excellent caregiver to his wife for many years. Armin became one of Jehovah’s Witnesses in his 30s, and believed in the hope for the future as laid out in the bible. “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even thought he dies, will come to life.” (John 11:23-25) “The righteous will possess the earth, and they will live forever on it.” (Psalm 37:29) He will be greatly missed, but we are so grateful to know that we will see him again.
