Obituary of Juergen Hartmut Knof


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Juergen Hartmut Knof (June 14, 1936 - February 9, 2022). He is survived by his wife of 59 years Heiderun Knof, his children Jens (Eva) Knof, Karin (Stefan) Rykowski, Elke Krach (Mischa Schoger), Sandra Knof, Heike Knof (Matt Douglas) and his grandchildren Peter, Kalen, Jessica, Patrick, Isabelle, Sophie and Oliver. Juergen will also be missed by his brother Hans, and extended family in Germany.


Juergen was born and raised in Germany and moved to Canada as a young man with a small family. He made himself a happy life through hard work while appreciating time with family and friends. He loved to travel and explore the world, was an avid tennis player and played at many clubs in Niagara over the years, a one time president at Club Heidelberg, and a lifetime member with the Rotary Club.  


Family was his priority and his happiness, and he will be dearly missed. 

Cremation has taken place. A private Celebration of Life will take place at a later date. If desired, donations to a charity of choice would be appreciated by Juergen's family.

A Memorial Tree was planted for Juergen
