OFNER: Friedrich - passed away peacefully surrounded by his family, at his residence on Saturday May 9, 2020. Fritz Ofner of RR#3 Bright in his 89th year.

Beloved husband of Julia (nee Tusch) whom he married December 26, 1964. Dear father of Stephen & wife Tammy of St. Clements and Nicki & wife Denise of Kitchener. Sadly missed by his grandchildren Greta, Madison, Adam and Aaron.
