Karl Wolker 1944-2024

In Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle, on February 3, 2024, at the age of 79, Karl Joseph Wolker passed away peacefully, surrounded by family. Karl is survived by his wife, Susan Barbe; 5 children, Hannah, Rodney (Carine), Heidi, Ruth (Stan), and Kristall-Rose; 16 grandchildren, his great-granddaughter , his brothers Alois (Maria) and Fred (Gerda) and other family members and friends.

Karl moved to Canada from Germany in his 20s in search of an adventure. He settled on a farm in the Richelieu region which he loved. He continued farming and working the land throughout his life and was one of the first farmers to grow ginseng in Quebec. Karl’s passion for tending the land and gratitude for harvests were inspirational. His personality and smile lit up a room. He preferred to say a joke than to have a serious conversation. Karl will be missed by many.

À Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle, le 3 février 2024, à l’âge de 79 ans, Karl Joseph Wolker s’est éteint en paix, entouré de sa famille. Karl laisse dans le deuil son épouse, Susan Barbe, ses cinq enfants, Hannah, Rodney (Carine), Heidi, Ruth (Stan) et Kristall-Rose ; 16 petits-enfants, son arrière-petite-fille, ses frères Alois (Maria) et Fred (Gerda), ainsi que d’autres membres de la famille et des amis.

Karl a quitté l’Allemagne pour le Canada à l’âge de 20 ans, à la recherche d’une aventure. Il s’est installé sur une ferme dans la région de Richelieu, qu’il a adorée. Il a continué à cultiver la terre tout au long de sa vie et a été l’un des premiers agriculteurs à cultiver le ginseng au Québec. La passion de Karl pour le travail de la terre et sa gratitude pour les récoltes étaient une source d’inspiration. Il avait une personnalité et un sourire qui illuminaient une pièce. Il préférait dire une blague plutôt que d’avoir une conversation sérieuse. Karl manquera à beaucoup.

La famille recevra parents et amis au salon funéraire:
