KAHLER: Udo Eckhart Rudi of Peterborough, formerly of Germany
KAHLER, Udo Eckhart Rudi: January 23, 1936 – August 12, 2014
Born and raised in Germany, Udo emigrated to Canada in 1956. He married the love of his life, Gerti, and raised 6 children in Peterborough, Ontario. His career included 34 years as a tool and die maker at Canadian General Electric. Gardening was his passion and we all enjoyed the fruits of his labour including delicious tomatoes and his homemade wines and sauerkraut. In his retirement years he spent more time enjoying his many grandchildren and two great grandchildren. Udo was a hard-working family man who will be greatly missed by his wife, children, grandchildren and friends. A private celebration of Udo’s life will be held on August 15, 2014. The family wishes to thank Dr. Rand, Dr. Ragaz, Dr. Wei and Dr. Blouin and especially the nurses at UHN and Peterborough hospital D2 Palliative care unit for their excellent care.
