    I too grew up at your house as I am Marcelle’s best friend. Funny, goofy little Hans running around the house. You always had a big smile. But girls will be girls and we didn’t have much time for you as we were sorting out our own growth as adolescents. Years later, you were kind and compassionate helping my aging mother with her respiratory needs. She was so proud when she called to tell me about little Hans Pechler coming to her home and what a big, strong and handsome man that you had become. I am grateful for your house full of memories growing up and your big infectious smile. You are not gone, dear Hans. You live thru your beautiful children everyday. Your legacy continues……….. Kyle

    Thinking of Hans entire family and friends that will mourn him. Sometimes God’s plan is so difficult to understand. Praying that the days ahead will give you some peaceful moments, although he is no longer here may you find comfort in the memories you have of him. I will fondly remember many an Indonesian potluck growing up and those memories as well as shared time in school, especially the Wyoming Park State football championship we celebrated in 1984.

    Too soon, too soon. I will miss my brother’s wonderful sense of humor and caring nature. Having three older sisters may have caused him…..heartburn from time to time, but as he got older and wiser he came to know the joys as well. I can’t believe you’re gone, I will miss you!

    Such a tragedy. My heartfelt condolences go out to Hans’ family. Hans has been a good friend since elementary school days, and I was lucky to spend time with him on a number of occasions in the last couple of years. Rest well, my friend.

    Great guy he was. Went to high school with Hans. I was a cheerleader at Wyoming Park and remember him playing football. He was awesome. Saw him this past summer and I’m so glad I did. My heart goes out to his family and especially his children. May God wrap His loving arms around all of you during this difficult time and give you peace.
