June 1, 1935 to October 30, 2010
With profound sadness, we announce the peaceful passing on Oct 30, 2010, at age 75, of our beloved father, grandfather, and uncle. Dirk will be missed by his loving wife (of 49 years) Jannie, son Michael, daughter Cindy (Glen Konowalchuk), and grandson Tyler.
He was predeceased by his sister Rina and his brother Gerry (Alice). He leaves in mourning his brother Rene (Trudy), nieces and nephews, and cousin Beppie.
Dirk loved his job as research technician at AECL in Pinawa. A true entrepreneur, he opened Cramer Jewellers, where he enjoyed years as a watchmaker and goldsmith. In retirement, Dirk enjoyed crosswords and the wildlife on his property in Brokenhead.
The family thanks Dr G. Campbell and the Home Care aids for their help in his final days.
In accordance with Dirk’s wishes, there will be no public service. A private family gathering will celebrate his life. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Winnipeg Humane Society.
