Obituary for Jurgen William Emmrich

Emmrich, Jurgen
January 20, 1950 - January 21, 2020

Jurgen passed away peacefully with family by his side after a long 6 year battle with brain cancer.

Jurgen leaves behind his Soul Mate, Joanne McManus and amazing daughters Ellen, Elise and Alix. He is survived by his dearest brother and only sibling Gunter Emmrich. He was so fortunate to have had two wonderful sons-in-law, Blair and Anthony and was forever grateful to have enjoyed time with his grandchildren Sophie, Amelia, and Samantha.

Jurgen was always a big presence in the lives of his family and friends and anyone he met along the way. He loved playing drums and traveling with the Waterloo Regional Police Band where lifelong friends were created. He also had a passion for motorcycles and riding his Harley with the boys in all kinds of weather and anytime. He ran the Mattamy Poker Run for years and raised substantial contributions to many deserving charities. Jurgen was a respected Senior builder with Mattamy homes for many years and was very proud of his building team. He looked forward to retirement, but he really missed the guys.

May the sunrise in front of you
the rain fall behind you
and the wind follow you
May the angels guard your way for they
know the road ahead
Ride in Peace My Love.

To the family we offer our deepest condolences. I had the honour of knowing Jurgen for all the time he was in the Police Band. He was a great member of the drum line and always had a wonderful sense of humour . He will be sincerely missed by all his friends in the band and by his family. He was just a great person to know!!!

To the family we offer our condolences, I've known Jurgen for a very long time, went to elementary school with him and his brother Gunter (of whom I have been friends with since then). Jurgen will be missed by all those who knew and loved him, but remember that as long as we keep his memory alive in our hearts he will never be far away and always with us.

Jurgen’s passing fills me with great sorrow. He was a man of high character, integrity and honour. I am thankful to have known and worked with him for many years and will remember him fondly. His saying to me was “keep smiling”. Rest In Peace my good friend.
