Hans Pech

Sept. 8, 1922 - May 31, 2011

Hans Pech, born Sept. 8, 1922, passed into eternal life Tuesday, May 31, 2011.

His passing happened shortly after the passing of his beloved wife Herta, where they spent 54 years in life together.

He is survived by his two daughters, Marion Lundy and Nancy (Bert) Restyanszki; was "Opa" to Matthew and Carley Lundy and Ellen and Nathan Restyanszki; and a brother to Anne Rohr of Tempe, Ariz., and Edith Kamanz of Vancouver, Canada.

Hans was a standing member of Ridgewood Baptist Church and retired from Ryerson Steel after 25 years of service. Spending time in his cabin "up North," playing chess with his grandchildren and reading a good book were his favorite pastimes.

Hans was remembered this past Tuesday in a combined service with his wife.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials to be made to The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research (Attn: Tribute Gifts, Church Street Station, P.O. Box 780, New York, NY 10008-0780).

Church and Chapel Ritter-Larsen Bros. Funeral Home is serving the family. For more information, call 786-8030 or visit www.churchandchapel.com to view the online obituary or leave condolences.
