It is with great sadness that the Springs family announces the peaceful passing of Rudiger in the Hull Hospital, Gatineau, Quebec on Wednesday, July 8, 2020 at the age of 89. Rudy will be joining his loving wife Suzanne Dufault-Springs. Our wonderful dad will be missed by his children Francine (late André Quintal) and Edgar. Adored grandfather of Martine (Jonathan), Justin (Selena) and Nathan, he leaves many precious memories to his grandchildren. Predeceased by his sisters Walburga Kolbel-Springs, Kriemhild Strotzer-Springs and his younger brother. Sadly missed by his sister-in-laws Odette (late Omer Plouffe) and Denise (late Roger Dufault), many nieces, and nephews as well as his friend Lucie Paul and extended circle of friends. Rudiger will be remembered for his generosity, his strength and his humour. A private service will be held at a later date.
