Viide, Heinrich (Henry) Eduard (Wiideman) - July 8, 1927 - February 22, 2018 It is with great sorrow that the Canadian family of Heinrich (Henry) Viide announces his sudden passing at Health Sciences North - Sudbury - Ontario - Canada - on Thursday, February 22, 2018. The son of Kustav and Juuli Elvine Viide, brother of Olga Marie Wiideman; Albert Johannes Viide and Richard-Villem Viide of Estonia, he lived a fulfilling and enriched life here in Canada. Never one to express much about his past, it has been derived that he emigrating from Kolga, Harju County, Estonia, and came to Canada on December 13, 1948. Making his way from Estonia via Sweden to Halifax N. S. and onto Ajax ON., Canada, he eventually found work in the remote logging camps of White River and Chapleau in Northern Ontario. With a strong work ethic and passion for the culinary delights, he not only exhibited his prowess of strength harvested timber and pulp wood for sustenance, he also displayed his skill for cooking and life skills and at one time was head cook for a logging operation of over 60 men. He continued to expand his culinary skills throughout his life, making delicious delights that rivalled those from Leinala's Bakery here in Sudbury! Homemade delights from his smoke house of fish, sausages, kolbassa and turkeys are still legendary for those lucky enough to remember the days long bygone. He adapted well to life in Northern Ontario, developing a healthy passion for all things outdoors. His time hunting, fishing and snowmobiling was time well spent with friends and family. The time he spent in the wilds of the forest seeking game brought him solace and comfort, often with the regular pleasures of the harvest. Always ready to seek the best bass hole and longest pike, his passion for fishing was only equalled by his delight in providing for others and lending a helping hand. Settling down in Estaire - Sudbury ON., he married Eini Marja (nee Kilpela) predeceased June 24, 1985, and was the proud father of Einar Edward and step father to Lilja Alatalo (nee Pihlaja). Later in life he was a compassionate partner of Anni Juusola (nee Angervasaari) - predeceased February 22, 2008. Affectionately called Pappa-Pappa, he was a devoted grandfather to Eila Ross (Rene), Ray Alatalo, Lillian Russell (Tim) and Brian Alatalo (Julie). He was a dedicated great grandfather to Jamie, Jason, Jennifer and Mika, an affectionate great great grandfather to Alythea and Anna. He worked at INCO mining here in Sudbury for twenty years and was an active member of the INCO Pensioner Club. He filled his spare time working his hobby farm in Estaire, and lent his back and skills to building many a basement and chimney as a brick/block layer. He honed his skills as a welder, carpenter and general contractor helping others, and was always ready to roll up his sleeves to get the job done. Never without an opinion, those who knew him well admired his conviction and passion for life and relished in the ensuing discussions on all matters of importance. Settling down in Lively (Sudbury) in his twilight years, Henry never forgot the importance of life, and the treasure each day provided. He will be forever missed by his friends and family here in Canada. Interment and a celebration of life to be announced later. The Jackson and Barnard Funeral Home.
