For EPPEL and wife, Saturday nights were for polka
By Jenni DUNNING, Special To Sun Media, Sun., January 20, 2008
Friends of John EPPEL remember his dedication to the community and his devotion to his garden.
And his wife Dorothy EPPEL smiles as she remembers her husband, who loved nature and dancing the polka on Saturday nights.
"In our last few years we loved to go dancing. Polka, of course, the fox trot, waltzes," she said. "Those are good memories."
John EPPEL Jr., of Tillsonburg, died of heart complications last June 10. He was 80.
An immigrant of German descent from Hungary, EPPEL lived in Tillsonburg for 73 years.
He worked as a teacher before getting "an offer he couldn't refuse" from his father to work on the family tobacco farm, Dorothy said.
That's where he got his great work ethic, she said.
EPPEL was also a director of the Delhi District German Home, a director of the Crop Insurance Commission of Ontario, a trustee with the Norfolk County school board, and a board member of the Tillsonburg District Memorial Hospital.
He and Dorothy, 12 years apart in age, married when EPPEL Jr. was 62. They were both widowed by their first partners.
He's survived by Dorothy, six children and 11 grandchildren.
His funeral at First Baptist Church in Tillsonburg, which holds 250 people, was packed, said Ike AMORIN, the church's senior pastor.
"His rapport with people was quite excellent," he said.
Pine and spruce seedlings were given out at the funeral -- fitting to his memory, said Dorothy.
EPPEL planted saplings every spring, about 10,000 in his lifetime, she said.
His last project was trying to develop a Carolinian tree species that's depleted in Tillsonburg.
"He was very conscious of the environment," said Dorothy.
EPPEL also had a garden "big enough to feed two families," she said. And he grew "thousands" of gladiola bulbs every year, said his friend, Rev. Andrew BRNDJAR.
He loved to be outside, even when he grew weak.
But his inner compass was a little off, said BRNDJAR. EPPEL always got lost and finished last in his church's annual car rally, where participants drive around Otterville on a scavenger hunt.
"We'd say, 'Hey John, did you take the scenic route?' " said BRNDJAR.
EPPEL had many collections, including hats and porcelain figures. He never threw anything away, including a "few hundred" baseball hats kept in his basement, said BRNDJAR.
"What's Dorothy going to do with all these hats when God calls you home?" he'd asked EPPEL.
He said he misses his friend, who was like a brother.
"We kind of fit together like a hand in a glove," he said.
