Jörg “Joerg” Hansen

October 17, 1947 - June 5, 2021

Funeral Details: A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date

It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Jörg after a brief battle with cancer.

Jörg will be sadly missed by Gerhild, his wife of nearly 52 years, daughters Svenja (Tim) and Cerry (Joe), as well as his beloved grandchildren Justin and Abigail.

Jörg brought his young family to Canada from Germany, after he fell in love with the beauty and nature of the land on a brief visit 45 years ago.  He worked for 30 years as a dental technician and manager at Image Dental Laboratories (formerly Central Dental).  Jörg loved the outdoors, whether hunting, camping, canoeing, or walking his dog.

Sincere thanks to the caring staff at Hospice Simcoe (Nancy, Sandy, Aryn & Garrett) for making Jörg‘s final hours peaceful and comfortable.

Cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life will be organized at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in Jörg’s memory to Hospice Simcoe.  https://www.canadahelps.org/en/dn/2595

    Remembering Jorg with warmest memories of the times we met at the dog park in rain shine and snow. A fine gentleman with a great sense of humour, he will be sadly missed.

    Jörg used to go through the catwalk past my yard twice a day walking his dog and always took a moment to stop and chat. He always had a little something to joke about with that dry sense of humour. I realized recently that I had not seen Jorg in awhile. I am so sorry to hear of his passing. He will be missed.

    I will miss Jorg and his wit and humour on his daily dog park visits with Odin. As will many, many others I’m certain. Please accept my family’s condolences. And Bauer will miss his treats. Jorg’s love for animals was beautiful. Rest In Peace.
