Fritz Banek

Manfred Wilhelm Banek was known to most as Fritz. His fun loving, carefree personality was contagious and he brought smiles to the faces of people all around him. He had the kindest heart and he wanted his actions to inspire people to be more thoughtful and compassionate to their neighbors. He wanted the world to be a better place and felt that even the smallest acts of kindness, like lending an ear, could make a difference. His aura was vibrant and his presences made the world more beautiful. Sadly he was taken from us too soon.

We have setup this website in his honor to allow people to post their photos and memories of Fritz. You will also find his obituary which will be in the Vancouver Sun April 11th & 12th.

We will be hosting a Celebration of Life Banquet for Fritz on May 6th, 2017 at the Italian Cultural Center. Please follow the links for more information and visit the RSVP page to leave details about your party if you plan to attend.

In lieu of flowers we are accepting donations in Fritz’s name. We have setup two options for those wishing to donate, please visit the donation page for details.
