In Memoriam - Colonel retd. Reinhard Wassertheurer, Vice-President of the Union CSLI 10.07.1952 - 16.08.2013

Verabschiedung Oberst Wassertheuer 21

With deepest regrets we have the sad duty to inform about the demise of our friend, comrade, and great person Col. retd. Reinhard Wasserteurer.

Col. retd. Reinhard Wassertheurer has been called into the Great Army on August 16th, 2013 at 15:00 in Vienna's Wilhelminenspital after a long and bravely endured illness.  By his demise the United Grand Priories has not only lost the Vice President, Commander, and Great Marshal of the Lazarus Union Knighthood of Honour but also a wonderful person, comrade, and a good friend, valued, respected, and loved.

Our thoughts and our deepest regrets in these hours are also with his wife Theresa and his family and we ask God to accept his immortal soul with mercy and immediately into the eternal Heaven.

The Ceremonial farewell was held on September 9th, 2013, with a large attendance. The dignified and solemn ceremony was performed by Vienna's Military Command, the Guards Regiment together with a detachment of the Guard regiment's Music Corps as well as the Lazarus Union and its Knighthood of Honour, which together with military comrades honoured the deceased with a full colour guard. Also the Lazarus Union Honour Guard presenting the colours and the Lazarus Union Music Corps participated.
