Obituary for Heinz Buchholz

Heinz Buchholz, age 90, of Burlington passed away on Monday, January 14, 2019. Throughout his life he was known as a “nix nutz” or mischievous fellow and was liked by everyone.

Heinz was born in Germany on October 17, 1928 to parents Heinrich and Margarete Buchholz. He loved animals and had a special kinship with horses. When Heinz couldn’t be found as a child, he would be found with the horses. He immigrated to the US from Germany in 1963, arriving in New York State after visiting a friend. The family returned to Germany for a short period before relocating to Arizona. In 2013 they moved to Washington State.
He took great pride in any job he did whether as a trained mason, raking his lawn or vacuuming floors.

Heinz is preceded in death by his wife Margaret in 2016 and son Michael in 1997. He is survived by daughter Marion Buchholz, two grandchildren Johnny Flanagan and Elise Flanagan-Criswell and numerous great grandchildren.

The family is planning a private gathering at a later date. You are invited to share your condolences and memories in the online guestbook at Arrangements are entrusted to Gillies Funeral Home and Cremation Services of Lynden.
