Eric Norenberg Obituary, Death -Eric Norenberg of Kemptville died peacefully, surrounded by his family, on December 2, 2022, at the age of 55, at the Ottawa General Hospital. Eric was a wonderful father to Lauren and Ryan, as well as a loving husband to Julie (nee Wittke). He was Margret’s (Sasha’s) beloved brother, as well as the uncle of Luke and Markus. Christa and Karl Norenberg predeceased him, and he is survived by his in-laws, Geraldine and Paul Wittke, brother-in-law David (Lana), niece Christine, and close friend Gerry McGillvray, who was like a brother to him. In Canada, Germany, Poland, and Switzerland, aunts, uncles, and cousins will remember him fondly.
Many friends, acquaintances, and Kemptville Building Centre Ltd. (KBC-BMR) employees, whom he considered extended family, will mourn his death. After his parents died, Eric took over KBC, and it thrived under his leadership. Eric grew up in Kemptville and was proud of his heritage. He was an active member of the North Grenville community, volunteering his time and energy to a variety of worthwhile causes such as the Kemptville District Hospital Foundation, the North Grenville Library, and the Kemptville Youth Centre. Eric enjoyed boating, snowmobiling, and traveling with family and friends. His love for animals was obvious, and he was frequently seen with pets by his side. He was looking forward to getting away to the family cottage and enjoying nature’s peace and quiet. His wonderful sense of humour was always evident.
He spent the last two weeks of his life at Ottawa General Hospital, where he received thoughtful care from all of the staff, for which the family wishes to express their heartfelt gratitude. We also want to thank the doctors and nurses at the Winchester Hospital Chemotherapy Clinic and the Ottawa Cancer Centre. Friends are invited to pay their respects at the Kemptville Chapel of Hulse, Playfair, and McGarry, located at 805 Prescott Street in Kemptville, on Friday, December 9th from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Following that, there will be a private funeral service. In his memory, donations can be made to the Kemptville District Hospital or the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation.
