Herbert Boettcher, 88 died peacefully at home on the farm on May 13th, 2019, in loving care of his family after a few months of deteriorating health. In spite of his weakening physical state, his spirit remained strong, his attitude positive and cheerful, his soul patient and peaceful. He was a true beacon to us all!

He is held dear by his wife of 59 years, Elisabeth, son Christian (Gabi), their children Erik (Edda),    Martin (Maria), Olaf and Ingrid, and son Jan (Mary Jane) their children Sascha and Maika and his        first great grandchild Ronja. Predeceased by his son Dirk in 1985.

Herbert immigrated from Germany in 1978 with his family and 10 Trakehner horses to the farm at               Montcrieff Road near Brussels. We are grateful to build upon his foundation and vision.

  A Celebration of Herbert's Life will be held on Saturday, May 25th, 2019 at 2p.m. at                             Riverside Funeral Home, Brussels

Christian and Gabi Boettcher


                     On behalf of the Canadian Trakehner Horse Society:

               Our deepest Sympathy and Condolences to the Boettcher Family!

   We remember Herbert as dear friend. He was a great supporter of the Canadian Trakehner Horse Society since the late 1970s. As vice president of the CTHS he gave freely of his time, gave good advice to the members of the society in matters of  breeding, acquiring and training Trakehner horses. All his life he showed great love and affection for all Trakehner horses, above all  his own, which he brought from Germany and the many Trakehners he bred and raised on his farm in Ontario, Canada.

He will be greatly missed!
Alex and Ilse von Hausen and family.
