Mr. Hans George Bramer, beloved husband of Louise Isabel Bramer of Coleman, Alberta, passed away on December 16, 2015 at the Crowsnest Pass Health Care Centre in Blairmore, AB at the age of 77 years and is now awaiting resurrection.
Hans was born on May 29, 1938 in Gumbinnenaltlinden, Germany to parents, Fredrick and Elisa Bramer. He emigrated from Germany in 1949 and grew to be a hardworking and earnest young man. His kind and gentle manner caught the attention of a lovely and graceful young lady, Louise Isabel Camilli, and they married on January 16, 1965 in Idaho, USA. Upon settling in the Crowsnest Pass to obtain work in the coalmines, Hans and Louise were blessed with a family whom they cherished and raised with love and faith. Hans dedicated much of his time with the Volunteer Fire Department and various community events, but his main priorities were for his family and Jehovah.
Hans had many talents and interests. He enjoyed carpentry and home repairs, gardening and puzzles, camping, fishing, collecting calendar photos, card games, maintaining a perfect lawn and ensuring that his family and friends were well provided for. May he inherit the paradise promised and be blessed with eternal joy.
Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God. (2Cor.1: 3-4)
He is survived by his devoted wife, Louise Bramer; his children, Tony Bramer of Bowden, AB, Louis Bramer of Lethbridge, AB, Connie (Chris) Caron of Red Deer, AB, Cherreane (Jae) Havens of Coleman, AB and Christine (Sylvain) Belleau of Red Deer, AB; his grandchildren, Jessica Newton, Grayham Havens, Gabriel Havens, Dolton (Amanda) Havens, Derek (Nicole) Havens, Anthony Bramer, Randy Bramer, Katie Bramer, Jeremy Bramer and Desirae Belleau; his great grandchildren, Sean Newton, Rolland Havens, Rachel Havens, Serenity Spears, Raine Havens and Desmonde Havens; his brother, Bob Bramer; his cousins in Germany; extended family and the many friends he made throughout his life.
