Obituary of Herbert George Stroh
Herbert Stroh, beloved husband of the late Gertrude Stroh of Calgary, passed away on Thursday, November 5, 2020 at the age of 86 years.
He emigrated from Germany in the year 1957.
He was a member of the Cal-O-Rail Club. He also volunteered at the Glenbow Museum in late 1982-83 working on the Great CPR Exposition O Scale.
Herbert had a passion for building his own model railroad layout in the basement of his home with the help of his friends and club members.
Herbert’s most memorable vacation was when he and our mom drove down to Arizona and Las Vegas. They loved going for walks in the desert with their dog Hansi. He enjoyed many trips out to Banff and all of the surrounding mountains.
He will be most remembered for his love of nature on the hiking trails and building his own train engines for his home layout.
Herbert is survived by his three daughters, Gitta (Harold), Gundi (Robert), Jane (Dave) and his son Jim (Leanne); eight grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.
