Remembering Horst Uebrueck

Horst Uebrueck passed away on January 28, 2020, surrounded by many of his loving family members. His fellow Edelweiss members are mourning the passing of a treasured friend. We will all hold his friendship close in our hearts. A consistently friendly, upbeat, encouraging, and happy man, Horst had a love of family and life that was an example for all.  He had just celebrated his 88th birthday on January 2. His last few months were difficult ones, but he did not complain.

Horst was born in Breslau, Germany, in 1932 and his life was a story of hardship, hard work, and positive attitude. His amazing life included his wife of 65 years, Paula; two children, Annette (John) Edelhauser and Chris (Michelle) Uebrueck; his five grandchildren, Renee, Andrea, and Maria Edelhauser and Kurt (Marianne) Uebrueck and Lauren (Joe) Brennan, along with three great grandchildren who will all miss him enormously. He took great joy in spending time with all of them. Our deep condolences on your loss.

Horst joined Edelweiss in 1983 and was awarded the Goldenes Edelweiss for his contributions to the club in 2009.  

Visitation is set for Sunday, February 2, from 2-4 pm; service from 4-5, including the Edelweiss service.  This will be held at Gramer Funeral Home in Shelby Township, 28271 Van Dyke Avenue.  Here is a link to Gramer Funeral Home

Ruhe in Frieden, lieber Horst
