Horst Wegmann 

April 12, 1973 - January 2, 2023

It is with great sorrow that the family of Horst Wegmann announces his passing after an intense battle with cancer.

Horst came to the Yukon with the love of his life, Bianka, whom he married in 2000. Horst was a very proud dad to their two beautiful daughters, Jack and Amy, whom he loved “to the moon and back”. He was their biggest fan and always there for them.

Horst took pride in his trade as an auto body technician. He apprenticed in Germany at an early age and after immigrating to Canada worked for Cutoff Classics, Irving Collision and Carstar.

His smile and kind heart will be missed endlessly by his family here in the Yukon and in Germany.

The family would like to thank the lovely staff at Wind River Hospice, and his many committed doctors and nurses, especially Dr. Alex Kmet, Dr. Stephanie Buchanan, and Dr. Sally Macdonald. A huge thank you goes out to the wonderful friends, neighbours, and the Yukon Fiddleheads for their loving support.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
