Condolences & Memories (1 entries)

  • Our sincere condolences from the Eschenwecker family. I have many fond memories and was very appreciative of when Heinz took me, as a teenager, out fishing. We had many deep and insightful discussions. He always had a unique, objective and broad perspective of the world. I feel honoured to have known Heinz and know he will be missed by family and many others. - Posted by: Ralph Eschenwecker (Fishing buddy) on: Jun 10, 2023
