JUNKER, Rudolf

Peacefully passed on Thursday April 25th, 2019, in his 89th year. Rudi came to Canada in 1956 from Germany looking to fulfill a dream. This is where he met the love of his life, Eva (predeceased in 2004). They married in 1957, built a beautiful home together in Whitby where they raised their three children. He was a long time (retired) employee of General Motors in Oshawa. Rudi’s biggest passion was working on his farm where he grew strawberries for more than 50 years. The Junker Family Farm is a staple in the community. Most of all, Rudi's pride and joy was his family.

He will be sadly missed by his three children; son Michael and his wife Frances, daughters Angela and her husband Derek, Janet and her husband Sly. His grandchildren Rachel, Jamie, Samantha, Kyle, Eric and Colin will miss their Opa. He will also be greatly missed by his companion Leisel Nettermann, and his sister Resi Junker of Trier, Germany.

Visitation at Barnes Memorial Funeral Home, 5295 Thickson Rd. N. Whitby on Tuesday April 30th, from 10:00 a.m. until time of service in the Barnes Chapel Tuesday morning at 11:00 a.m.

In memory of Rudolf memorial donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be appreciated. Rudolf will be laid to rest beside his wife at Resurrection Catholic Cemetery.

To Lisa and the Junker Family,

I only discovered today that Rudolph had passed away.
I first met Rudolph in May of 2013. In my capacity as a Commercial Real Estate Broker, I realized that he owned a prime piece of residential real estate that was ready for development.
During the many visits I had with him since our first encounter, I found him to be a very warm friendly person with a native streak of common sense. As much as I tried to convince him to take his property to market his response was always the same. He loved his home on Garden Street and if he received a lot of money how would that make him any happier than he already was. It was hard to argue with him.
Rudolph in my short experience with him left with me the impression of being a good person and I believe he left the world with a good name. As they say you can’t take your money with you and you have only one chance to leave a good first impression.
My condolences to Lisa and the Junker Family.
Wayne Haas

wir möchten Dir/Ihnen unser tiefes Mitgefühl ausdrücken. Wir sind traurig, betroffen und wünschen viel Kraft für die kommende Zeit der Trauer. Wir hätten Rudi gerne nochmal bei uns in Deutschland gesehen und gedenken der wenigen gemeinsamen Momente, die wir mit diesem tollen Menschen verbringen durften.
