First Baptist Church Halifax extends sincere sympathy to the family and friends of the late Christoph Wirth-Bulmer whose funeral took place here on Saturday, August 3 at 2 p.m.
WIRTH-BULMER, Christoph – It is with heartbreaking sadness that we announce the passing of Christoph Wirth Bulmer, 47, of Halifax. He passed away on Sunday, July 28, 2013, surrounded by his family. Christoph fought hard to the end in his battle with esophageal cancer. Christoph was born in Bochum, Germany on January 10, 1966 to Erika Wirth (Meischein) and Joachim Wirth. Christoph’s passions were soccer, music and cars. He loved to watch his favourite team, VFL Bochum play and he had hoped he could take his son to a game this year. He was a dedicated employee of Parkinson’s Canada and his most recent employer, Volkswagen Canada Inc. Both employers were extremely compassionate and helpful during his battle with cancer. Left with loving memories are his wife o f 19 years, Ingrid Bulmer; his son, and light of his life, Axel (8); brother, Willi Zeiger and his niece, Cathrin Arndt (Niklas, Mira, Jona) and nephew, Christian; mother-inlaw, Ingeborg Bulmer (Duerr); sisters- in-law, Karen Bulmer and Sandra Bulmer (Ted Pritchard); along with aunts, uncles, cousins, dear friends and extended family in Germany and Switzerland. He will be missed by family and friends in New Brunswick, Ontario, and Manitoba. Christoph was predeceased by his mother and father, Erika and Joachim Wirth and father-in-law Jim Bulmer. We would like to thank Dr. Snow, Dr. Buduhan, and Dr. Hollenhorst for their efforts in continuing to search for other treatments that would have prolonged his life. We would also like to thank the nurses on 8A for their kind care. Visitation will be held 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Friday, August 2 in Atlantic Funeral Home, 6552 Bayer’s Rd., Halifax. Funeral service will take place at 2 p.m. Saturday in First Baptist Church, 1300 Oxford St., Rev. John Boyd officiating and where a reception will held. A private family graveside service to follow.
