This is the obituary for Dad that was published in the Winnipeg Free Press on Saturday, April 9th:
John (Jack) Edward Hoeppner, beloved husband of Marilyn, father to Grant (Astrida) Hoeppner and Colleen Heinrichs, grandpa to Kendra and Mackenzie Heinrichs and loved by son in-law Dave Heinrichs, passed away Wednesday, April 6th at the St. Boniface Hospital. Dad packed in more than two life times of activities and accomplishments in his 67 years. Dad was known for his passions: his love for God, his love for his family and his love for radio engineering around the world and most recently at Corus Entertainment (CJOB) as National Director of Engineering, Radio.
A celebration of all these passions and more will be held Monday, April 11th at the Immanuel Pentecostal Church, 955 Wilkes Ave., Winnipeg, MB, 2:00 pm. A private family burial will be held before the Celebration.
In lieu of flowers and in honor of Jack’s love to mentor the younger generation donations may be made to an Educational Trust Fund for Jack’s beloved granddaughters Kendra & Mackenzie Heinrichs, available at the church.
We are extremely grateful for the caring efforts of dad’s personal physician, the paramedics, the Fire/Rescue squad, the Victoria and St. Boniface Hospital professional and medical staff members.
Dad you were the best – we love you.
