DETLEF VON HALLE
May 1, 1960 – May 27, 2023
Detlef Erhard Karsten von Halle passed away suddenly on May 27, 2023 at the age of 63 years.
He leaves behind his wife Lisa here; his mother Rosie; sister Gudrun (son Andre and family); brothers, Heinz Friedo (Rita and son Tom-Marik), Kai (Petra), Thomas and Mark and other family members in Germany. He also leaves his sister-in-law Theresa (Mark) and brothers-in-law, Wilbur and Gary; nieces and nephews include, Morley, Rodney (Mandy), Christine (Lorne), Amanda (Darren), Michael (Victoria), Sarah (Ryan) and Ricky (Jodi); and 20 more great-nieces and nephews and great-great nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his grandmother Adele; father Heinz Friedo; sister-in-law Kathy; brother-in-law Eddy; uncle Rudolph; niece Lorie and nephew Niklas.
Detlef came to Canada through the German military training camp at Shilo. He met his wife Lisa here and decided to stay. He loved the lakes and the prairies, the job opportunities and was open to learning, whether it be on the job or perfecting his English. He started off working at Inventronics and then moved to Koch Fertilizer Canada, where he remained for 25 years. He was a millwright and then moved on to be a vibrations analysist. He was also a representative for the Health and Safety Committee. He felt valued and appreciated. He was known for his phenomenal memory and his concern for the safety of his fellow employees.
During Detlef’s time in the military he travelled frequently. With his wife Lisa, he travelled to Germany to visit family and there was a trip to Jamaica and one to Mazatlan, but he was happiest closer to home. The second love of his life was his dog Jocy and she could join in when the family went camping. He met many friends through Jocy and his visits to the dog park and with the frequent walks he took. He was looking forward to showing off his new puppies, Bebe and Bodie.
Our sister Carol passed away 11 days after Detlef. Due to these circumstances, plans have changed to a private family burial this summer. The family would like to thank the police and EMS who attended, all those who have sent flowers and cards, made donations, sent food, or showed their support in other ways, and a special thanks to the Koch Company, Asad, Peter, Jamie and others.
Detlef was never very comfortable showing emotion, but he showed he cared in other ways. During the first 15 years of our marriage, we never lived alone. The door was always open to anyone in need. He supported me in so many ways. He became so good at cooking that his meals could rival most restaurants in town. He looked after me in so many ways and told me he loved me each day. He will be missed by so many.
The 27th of June would have been Detlef and Lisa’s 36th wedding anniversary, He meant much more than he knew to all of us. We are all “going to love you, forever and ever. Amen.”
