February 21, 1930 - May 27, 2024

In Loving Memory ~

With heavy hearts, we say goodbye to our very special dad, grandpa, and great-grandpa, Hans Naegelin, who passed away on Monday, May 27, 2024, at the age of 94.

He was born in Winterthur, Switzerland, on February 21, 1930, the eldest of two boys. He and his brother were raised in the city but dad pursued a career at farm school where he met his wife of 66 years, Agnes.

He immigrated to Canada in 1953, and in 1957, Agnes joined him and they made a loving home in Prince George and Quesnel where they raised their three daughters, Mary Anne, Rita, and Christine.

He loved his hobby farm, fishing on Dragon Lake and Cluculz Lake, and was always up for a good debate about politics over an ice cold cider. They also enjoyed travelling the world and made many trips back to their homeland to visit family.

Hans was predeceased last summer by his loving wife, Agnes; his brother, Roland; and all his brothers and sister-in-law's. He was the last man standing.

He is survived by his daughters, Mary Anne (Jim), Rita, and Christine (Terry); grandchildren, Derek (Bridgette), Shelby (Adam), Bethany (Erik), Devin (Danielle), and Jake; great-grandchildren, Mira, Easton, and baby "K" (due in July); along with step-grandchildren, Ella and Jack.

Thank you to the health care teams in Prince George, the Sturgeon Community Hospital in St. Albert, and Everitt Gardens Seniors home for their exceptional care, as well as their longstanding friends, neighbours, and Nelly.

A Private Graveside Service will be held at a later date.

For those who wish, donations in memory of Hans, may be made to the Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation.
