Hans Kohler

April 9, 1932 - December 26, 2023


Hans was born at the family home in Osoyoos on April 9, 1932. The apricot trees were blooming. He joined his parents Max and Hennie – recent immigrants from Europe – and his brother Fritz. The Kohler family later welcomed another son, Karl.

Hans lived his entire life within 15 miles of the spot he was born – always with a view of Chopaka. The rapid growth and changes during his time in the Okanagan – Similkameen were photographed by his mother and later donated to the local museum.

As a kid, his big adventure was to ride his bicycle to Oroville. He continued exploring, eventually visiting every province in Canada, and every state in the USA – plus 60 additional countries. He had many fond memories of travelling with local friends.

Family left to remember the good times include; Linda, his loving wife of 54 years; her family that welcomed Hans with open hearts; four children and their spouses; six grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; and six nieces and nephews.

We thank Dr. Tarr, the Home Care Team and Interior Health for helping us look after Hans at home in his last years. You were all a great source of Support, comfort and strength.

No service by request.
