HAASE, Arnim Bernhard
Arnim Bernhard Haase, dearly beloved husband of Margie, took his final flight into the skies on Saturday, September 7th, 2019. This time a flight like no other, to arrive safely home to meet his Lord and
Savior Jesus Christ and to be forever freed from his fourth and final battle with cancer.

Arnim was born in Berlin, Germany and had a happy childhood, despite the war years. After high school he completed his engineering degree in what was then East Germany. Over the years he became more and more disturbed with the Communist Dictatorship and had began planning his escape to freedom. In 1970 he and a friend were permitted to go on a mountaineering vacation to Bulgaria and they hiked right over the mountains, eventually ending up in West Germany. Two years later the Rocky Mountains of Alberta drew Arnim to Calgary. With his German/English dictionary always close at hand, he continued his studies at the University and received his PH. D in Electrical Engineering. He worked in the oil and gas industry in Calgary as a Geophysical Programmer for Sefel Geophysical and for Geo-X Systems, in New Zealand as a development engineer with Phillips for nearly three years and ended his career as a research geophysicist for CREWES at the University of Calgary.

During this time, he also fulfilled his lifelong dream of becoming a recreational pilot. He enjoyed fifteen years of flying light planes and discovering the beauty of God’s creation from the skies. He cherished the times spent with his aviation buddies at Kirkby’s Airfield, at the weekly coffee meetings, on occasional trips to air museums or to check out airplanes for sale. Arnim and Margie enjoyed some wonderful flights together, as well as many hiking trips in the beautiful Rocky Mountains. With family in Germany, they were privileged to experience memorable European vacations; Arnim often commented how grateful he was for the gift of freedom that allowed for this.

In 2003 Arnim had his first diagnosis of cancer. He was still working at the time and would head straight to the office after a morning of chemo. During the next few years he endured two more bouts with cancer, including a stem cell transplant. In March of this year, lymphoma once again invaded his body, this time too aggressively for him to recover; he accepted it peacefully and spent his last days reflecting on the amazing journey life had taken him on.

Arnim is loved and remembered by his wife Margie; his sister in-laws Anneliese Haase and Helen Siemens, brother in-law John Siemens, his nieces and nephews, Cale and Carolyn Siemens, Kerri Siemens, Shawn and Stacey Siemens, James Siemens and Dorothea Haase; his grand nieces and nephews, Kelsi, Berlin, Sage, Ryder, Reid, Fiona, Lucia and Lawrence as well as many treasured cousins and friends. He was predeceased by his parents Bernhard and Irmgard Haase, his brother Robert and his nephew Goetz

We close with the words of the psalmist words which brought peace and comfort to Arnim:

“My soul finds rest in God alone;
My salvation comes from Him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation;
He is my fortress; I will never be shaken”

A Celebration of Arnim's Life will be held on Saturday, September 21, 2019 at 2:00 pm at Abundant Life Church, 3325 - 49 Street SW, Calgary, AB.
Donations may be made in Arnim's memory directly to U.B.David & I'll B. Jonathan Inc, 2115 - 5 Avenue NW, Calgary, AB, T2N 0S6.
