Henry R. Stiepel, M.D. passed away peacefully on Monday, April 26, 2010. Dr. Stiepel was born in 1922 in Marklissa, Germany. He immigrated to the United States with his wife, Christine Stiepel, M.D. whom he met in medical school in Leipzig in 1951. He practiced internal medicine with Kaiser Permanente for 40 years until his full retirement in 1996. Dr. Stiepel was respected and admired by his colleagues and patients alike for his untiring care of his patients. After retirement, he traveled extensively throughout the world with his wife. His dedication to his family was total. Nothing meant more to him, and he gave his family everything he had. He will be sorely missed.

Dr. Stiepel is survived by his two sons, Henry and John; his daughter-in-law, Franca; his two grandsons, Henry and Leigh; his brother Erhard; and his sisters-in-law, Margaret Stiepel and Sigrid Lusmann.

    I only knew Heinz for a few years, but I’ll always remember the tour he gave Angi and me of the SoCal beaches and San Juan Capistrano. We had a fantastic lunch, delicious ice cream and wonderful company. Thanks also to Heinz for pointing out that the best hot dogs to be found are at Nu-Way Weiners in Macon, Ga. Thinking of Heinz and his dry sense of humor always puts a smile on my face.

    Hank was like family to me having grown up living across the street. He was a caring and humble man. My children fondly remember the chocolate Christmas ornaments and the doctors house calls. We have many great memories. He will be truly missed by all of us. The Closs-Breedlove Family
