Hem journeyed to Canada from Berlin with best friend Gerry Stange at the age of 18. He came to Canada looking for a better life and found the love of his life and created a beautiful family. He was a long term employee of Motor Wheel until they closed. He enjoyed going for long walks, reading, keeping up on his politics and sharing all his stories and adventures with his grand children. He also loved cooking and baking and made the best damn gravy.
