Moltzahn, Julius

Julius Moltzahn passed away at Fort Macleod on Wednesday, Feb. 15, 2006, at the age of 75 years. Julius is survived by his wife Eileen of Fort Macleod; his daughter Kathy (Brian) Shore of Calgary; his son Brian (Patricia) Moltzahn of Nobleford; grandchildren Lee, Adam and Devon Moltzahn and Graham, Andrew and Megan Shore; and by his brothers and sisters Bill (Shirley) Moltzahn of Red Deer, Rhoda Chyzyk of Calgary, James Moltzahn of Didsbury and Vera (Richard) Kinley of Nova Scotia. Julius was predeceased by his parents Ludvik (Louis) and Emma; his sister Ruth Heidebrecht and by his niece and nephew Colin and Colleen. Julius was born on April 13, 1930, in Bashaw, Alta. At a young age he did carpenter work and went into welding, working on pipelines, pumping stations and gas plants throughout Canada. For 17 years he was a welding instructor at Lethbridge Community College. At the same time he raised Aberdeen Angus cattle on an acreage east of Fort Macleod. Julius was an avid outdoorsman and was an active member of the Fort Macleod Fish and Game for over 40 years, serving 15 of them as president. He took great pride in the fact that his acreage served as a mini habitat for many wild animals as well as feral cats which he fed every day. Julius’ strength, kindness and love for his family and friends earned him respect and love from all who knew him. The last year when his quality of life deteriorated, his friends and family were a great support to him and Eileen, which they really appreciated. A memorial service was held at Trinity United Church, Fort Macleod, on Saturday, Feb. 18, 2006, at 2 p.m. with Rev. Aldeen McKay officiating.
