We Regret to Announce That We Have Had to Discontinue

For years, we have posted regional death notices as a free public service, while taking on the complete cost of publishing ourselves. We can no longer do so.

Without participating Funeral Centres, Cemeteries, Monument Suppliers and Local Businesses advertising with us, we can no longer run this website at a financial deficit.

We have received dozens of emails by folks upset at the discontinuation of our daily updates, and we apologize.  We also love this site, and considered it a great service to the public by accumulating and listing all Regional Obituaries in one spot.

Also, we appreciate the privacy to not contact the families of friends for funeral arrangements who may be shortly passing, as well as, friends not having to frequently check all local funeral centre websites for service information.

 Sponsors are welcome to participate and support WaterlooObituaries.com by advertising (i.e., local funeral centres, cemeteries, monument suppliers or local businesses, ...we would also include your Banners and Direct Links to your websites) – please contact us !

Participating Funeral Centres will be prominently Featured; within their Region, and within the Obituary Notices, including Links redirecting viewers to your Websites.

We are continuing to publish notices to DurhamObituraies.com …  and also for now, TorontoObituaries.com and HaltonObituaries.com

Thank you for visiting our website.

We plan to have the 9 other Regional Websites back on-line soon!

Daniel was born in Felldorf, Transylvania, Romania in 1925 and immigrated to Canada from Austria in 1953. Sara and Daniel were grateful for their new life in Canada where they worked hard to succeed and enjoy the many opportunities this new life offered them. They enjoyed their membership with Saxon friends at the Transylvania Club, cherished time at their cottage at Amberley and were charter members of Bethel Lutheran Church, Kitchener, a church he helped to construct.  Daniel was a faithful employee of Dahmer Steel for many years.

Friends are invited to share their memories of Daniel with his family at the Erb & Good family funeral home, Waterloo, on Wednesday, May 16th from 2 pm to 4 pm and 7 pm to 9 pm. The funeral service to celebrate his life and faith will be held in the chapel of the funeral home on Thursday, May 17th at 11 am. Following cremation, interment will take place at St. Peter’s Lutheran Cemetery, Kitchener. Friends and relatives are invited to the Fireside Reception Room of the funeral home for refreshments and a time to visit with the family immediately following the service.
