Obituary of Kurt BOLL
October 9, 1928 - Altkussfeld, Germany
July 10, 2021 - Calgary, Alberta
Kurt Boll, beloved husband of the late Herta Boll (nee Vollmer), of Calgary, AB, passed away on Saturday, July 10, 2021 aged 92 years.
Born to parents, Berta and Ernst Boll, Kurt had two brothers, Martin and Erich. Kurt packed a lot into 92 years – navigating a challenging childhood, a World War, marriage, emigrating with his wife and infant son, starting over in a new country in a new language, fatherhood, grand fatherhood and widower hood, being an employer, neighbour and friend. Mostly life was very good, but sometimes it was hard and grim. Kurt survived and thrived. Kurt was a kind, loving and gentle man, and lived life with quiet determination, perseverance, creativity and humor.
Kurt is survived by his son Klaus Dieter Boll (Wilma), daughter Rosemarie Boll (Ron Wigglesworth), granddaughters, Sandra Popovich and Stephanie Coulson; and six great-grandchildren. Kurt was predeceased by his loving wife Herta Boll.
