Kraus, Dr. Hermann

September 3, 1924 ~ November 30, 2011

Dr. Hermann Kraus passed away peacefully in Nanaimo Regional General Hospital at the age of 87. Hermann came to Canada from Rodenkirchen, Germany in 1961. After 2 years in Winnipeg, he and his family moved to Vancouver Island where he set up a very successful dental practice in Nanaimo, until he retired. He was a very keen fisherman, an avid gardener and a great dog lover.

He will be deeply missed by his wife, Lotti, of 59 years; his sons: Dieter (Margaret) and Klaus (Hanni); his grandchildren: Chris (Kelly), David (Natasha), Julia and Sebastian; his five great-grandchildren: Paige, Makenna, Emerson, Jaidyn and Ciara; and last, but not least, his faithful companion, Bello.

Sincere thanks to the staff in the Palliative Care Unit for the exemplary care he received for a very brief period.

No service by request. If wished, donations may be made to the Salvation Army or SPCA, which were of special interest to Hermann.
