KLEIN, Willi (Willibald Frank) - Passed away peacefully at his home after a long, happy and blessed life.

Willi was born in Czechoslovakia along with his 4 siblings. His father was the Mayor of their Town and at the end of the war in 1945, they were forced to flee Czechoslovakia to Germany as displaced persons. 

In 1956, he came to Canada and worked on farms and the Canadian National Railway.

He came to know Jesus as his Saviour and Lord in 1957, moved to Toronto in 1958, met Jill, the love of his life, in 1964 and they were married eight months later. He worked in a leadership role at Consumers Gas for his entire career of 35 years.

Willi is survived by his wife, Jill and his sons, Derek and Brian, along with his five grandchildren Kostya, Sergei, Natasha, Brianna & Caleb and great grandchild Nikolai. 

Willi will be remembered for his gentle demeanour, love for soccer, knowledge of current events and adoration for nature. His dedication to the work of the Lord in areas of finance, administration and mentoring youth will be greatly missed. 

Arrangements with Mount Lawn Funeral Home.

The family welcomes donations to the Canadian Bible Society as an expression of sympathy in lieu of flowers.
