Gunter R. Hoellwarth

It is with heartfelt sadness that the family of Gunter R. Hoellwarth announce his passing on November 23, 2022, with his loving family by his side.

Gunter was born in Schwaz, Austria on August 28, 1928. He immigrated to Montreal in 1954 where he met the love of his life Theresia (Thea).  They married in 1956 and raised 3 wonderful children and moved to Saint John in 1973.  He enjoyed many trips to Europe and New Zealand and their annual trips to Florida for many years.   He had much joy seeing and helping with the growth of his grandchildren, who enriched his life greatly and was utterly thrilled with the recent addition of his great-grandson, Silas. 

He was a dedicated Banker with The TD Bank for many years, 12 of which being Manager of the West Side Branch.  He was long time Treasurer with Lancaster Kiwanis Club as well as many years volunteering with The Red Cross.

He is survived by daughters, Ingrid (Graham) Rossiter and Nora (Kevin) Boudreau; daughter-in-law, Stephanie; grandchildren: Jessica, Joshua, Emilee, and Sarah; and great-grandson, Silas. He was predeceased by his wife of 65 years, Theresia (Thea); son, Peter; brother, Hermann; and sisters, Marianne and Fini.

Many thanks for the caring and concern from the staff at Joan’s Home Support Care, Chateau de Champlain, Extra Mural Nurses and SJRH Palliative Unit.
