Heinrich Kreker

1991 – 2013 

keker sqHeinrich (Henry) Kreker aged 21 years of Waterloo, ON, son of Vladimir and Tatjana Kreker passed away on July 13, 2013 as a result of a tragic accident. He was born on July 26, 1991 in Russia, and was the oldest of three. In 1992 the family moved to Helzen, Germany, where Henry attended the elementary school until grade four. Then in 2002 the family moved to Blumenfeld, Manitoba where he finished grade eight. In 2010 he graduated with honors of distinction (96% average) from Garden Valley Collegiate and went on to study computer science and business administration in Waterloo, Ontario. Henry was always very curious and loved to learn even at a very young age.  Many hours were spent studying, because Henry did everything to the best of his ability and to perfection. Henry was determined to finish high school with honors and with his hard work and determination he did. Math and art were two of his favorite subjects in school and you could often find him drawing or working on his computer. Family was always so very important to him and there was nothing he would not do for them. Henry loved creating new family traditions; one of his favorites was making breakfast for his parents with his sister and brother on Christmas morning, after which they would open presents. His gifts were always from the heart and somehow always knew exactly what to get everyone. He was also very protective over his siblings, especially his sister; the two of them were inseparable. When she first started school Henry would make sure to find her during recess to make sure she was ok. The three of them were always very close. Henry was the greatest big brother that anyone could have asked for. He was a wonderful role model to his younger siblings and always encouraging them to be themselves. He was non-judgmental and always there if they needed someone to talk to.

He is survived by his parents Vladimir and Tatjana Kreker; his sister Regina Martens (Kreker) and brother in law Kevin Martens and his brother Tobias Kreker. He also leaves his grandparents Heinrich and Maria Kreker and Jakob and Helena Pankratz, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins. Henry was one of the most accepting, caring and loving young men and that is how we will always remember him.
