If one had to choose a word to describe Wolfgang, it would be “committed” 100% to everything he did in his life; he was focused and driven. He never gave up, and was always ready.....Faster! Further! Smarter!

Having had a great dislike for peas and carrots as a child, Wolfgang discovered his passion for cooking at a very young age. In Germany, at the age of 14, he left home to study culinary arts which set the stage for a lifelong career that brought him to kitchens around the world. While working in Toronto, he met Corriëtte, his loving wife of 55 years. He became a successful businessman, entrepreneur, a Master Chef and was active in local and international culinary competitions and events.

Spirited by his love of community, he often volunteered preparing holiday dinners for hundreds each year. He participated in many charitable events and was involved with the local food banks. He always offered his culinary talent at family and friends’ celebratory occasions.

Family gatherings were a favourite where he loved to sit at the kids’ table.
Whether it was driving, skiing down slopes, tearing up a dance floor, riding his bike, there was only one speed, fast!

After retirement, travel became his passion, even better when shared with family or close friends. He loved to explore, seek and understand different cultures. He climbed Kilimanjaro at age 62 and later conquered the Machu Picchu trail.

No longer with us, Wolfgang will never be forgotten. To honour Wolfgang’s spirit, please practice random acts of kindness or volunteer in your community. In lieu of cards and flowers, if you so desire, donations can be made to organizations close to Wolfgang’s heart - Alzheimer’s Society of Ontario, The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario, Myeloma Canada or the charity of your choice. A Celebration of Life was planned and will be held at a later date. Arrangements have been left in the compassionate care of SMITH-LeROY FUNERAL HOME, 69 Wellington St. North, Woodstock, ON (519-537-3611). Personal condolences may be sent at
