Hermann Kleefisch Update?

I’m still looking for information on Hermann Kleefisch’s trip around the world. He set off from Prince Edward Island in July in a VW microbus.

Bob Likely passed along a possible email address this morning, and I’ve written to see if I can get an update.

If anyone else has any news, I’d welcome it.

So sorry to hear about his passing. His last days in the maritimes was spent with my family In New Brunswick. He certainly lived a lively and colorful life! May he rest in peace with his 1st wife (for the life of me I can't remember her name) lovely lady. loved showing off her home and gardens and really loved cooking.

Hi Barbara. The last time I heard from Hermann was last spring. I spoke to him on the phone when he called from Thailand where he was living very happily with his new wife Ta. I tried contacting him again just recently and have not received a response. I spoke to a lady from Germany who had been keeping in contact with him today and she said she has not heard from him in a few months. Hopefully this does not preceed bad news :(

This is not correct. Herman is a friend of mine and I had dinner with him a long time after that date. I know he was alive in December 2014. When I last saw him he was extremely happy and contented.

I think his son's name is Pan. Hermann called us in PEI on May 20, 2016 and left a short phone message. I tried calling back a few times and emailing but have not had any response. Hoping all is ok! Anyone else know how to contact him via phone?

Hallo together, my mother was a cousin to Hermann, who should be around 100 years now. He was born in Germany in Northrhine-Westphalia and visited our place together with Tha about 10 years ago. Any notice would make me happy. Especially sign of Life by Hermann himself.
