Walter Kanorr, 65
Loving son, brother and dear friend,
of New Bremen, Ohio, passed away peacefully in his sleep on July 4th, 2023 at 12:35 AM at the Divine Rehabilitation and Nursing at Shane Hill near Rockford, OH.
He was born on May 5th, 1958 in Celina Ohio to his adopted parents Walter Theodore and Virgene A. (Luedeke) Kanorr. He attended Coldwater Schools and after the passing of his dad, moved to New Bremen where he remained for the rest of his life.
He is preceded in death by his parents, and Madonna and Robert Silvers (sister and brother in-law).
Walter had many loves, but most of all were his family and friends. He was fiercely loyal and protective. One of Walter’s biggest accomplishments was owning his own house where he loved hosting parties. He enjoyed catering and collecting needed re-sellable items. He was larger than life with a booming voice and a heart of gold.
A celebration of life will be held on Monday, July 24, 2023 at 4:00 PM at the Gilberg-Hartwig Funeral Home (225 West Monroe Street, New Bremen OH 45869). A time of visitation will be held from 3:00 until 4:00 PM prior to the service at the funeral home. Dinner will follow immediately after the service in the assembly room at St. Paul United Church of Christ in New Bremen. Walter will be laid to rest in the Mercer Memory Gardens in Celina next to his parents at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in honor of Walter to the American Diabetes Foundation (45 Whitney Road; Suite 2M, Mahawh, NJ 07430).
