Pius Bueler

Date of Death: September 15, 2018

Tribute

With great sadness we announce that a beautiful man has left us.  Pius passed on Saturday, September 15, 2018 in the Nelson Hospital.

He will be dearly missed by lots of family and friends.  He is survived by his wife, Jackie. He leaves behind his daughter Debbie (Bob) Anderton, his sons Stephen (Mel) Bueler, Brian (April) Bueler, grandchildren, Ryan (Kelsey), Nicki (Bob), Sherri (Brian), Shauna (Colin), Simone, Kevin, Amanda (Nick), Jessie (Brei), great grandchildren, Makayla, Dylan, Keira, Brooklyn, Alexandrea, Austin and his beloved cat Bullet.   He also leaves behind his sisters, Elizabeth & Josie of Switzerland, and numerous nieces & nephews.  He was predeceased by his father Pius Bueler-Hegner and mother Josefina Bueler-Hegner and his brothers, Joseph, Emil, and Walter.

Pius was born in Galgenen, Switzerland on August 22, 1931.  Pius traveled by boat to Canada in March, 1952, not knowing how to speak a word of English.  He travelled west, until he found the Kootenays, where he fell in love with the beauty, which reminded him of his homeland.  Pius worked as a Cook with Kootenay Forest Products until 1981 at which time he semi-retired.  He loved gardening and was very good at it. Pius started growing radishes and green onions, which he sold to Quality Produce in Nelson.  He also chopped kindling, putting them into bundles and sold them to many resorts in and around Banff and Lake Louise.  Many of you may remember his famous meat pies.  They were so good — he could not keep up with the orders and had to make the decision to just make them for the family.  He also enjoyed his time with friends having coffee at Drifters and sharing the news of the Valley.  He loved the Kootenays!!

We would like to say thank you to the ambulance attendants, Doctors & Nursing staff in Kaslo & Nelson, Sarah at Thompson Funeral Services and our many friends for all support and kindness during this difficult time.

Please join us for a Celebration of Life to be held at the Lardeau Valley Community Hall, Hwy 31, Meadow Creek, BC on Saturday, October 6th, 2018 @ 11:00 am to 2:00 pm.

Relation: Friend and co-worker

I was a lost soul and wayward teenager when I first arrived at Marblehead logging camp to work with Pius. I had lost my father in a car accident when I was 12 and had no one to offer me guidance and mentor-ship. We became great friends and coworkers. I saw attributes in Pius that I wanted to emulate, like his generosity, his sense of humour, and his unwavering stance for righteousness and hard work ethics. Pius was shorter in stature but I looked up to him as if he were as tall as two empire state buildings. My heart drowned in tears of sadness when i heard the news of his passing. To me he was the father figure I never had. He offered me advice on life and finances and prompted me to move forward with a plan for a successful future. I have been blessed with a very rewarding career and amazing family and I credit Pius for helping me realise my potential and pointing me in the right direction. I truly do not know if I would have found my way if it were not for Pius. He was my guiding light and from this day forward I will always choose the brightest star in the heavens and call it my Pius Star. As I know if I follow that bright star, it will always guide me safely home. Thank you for touching my life with with your wisdom and compassion Dear Pius. My sincere condolences to your family in this time of sorrow. Rest in Eternal Peace

Relation: Cousin

I searched for family members on the internet. I didn’t meet my cousin Pius personally. But my mother (sister of his mother, now 98 years old) told me a lot about Pius as well as his brother Miggel when I was a child . When he left Switzerland I was 7 years old and started to dream about following Pius. But Canada is huge and I had no address. And dreams are vanishing away.
Can you please forward this message to his family. Thank you.
Ivo
