In January of 1991, Pius moved his family from Switzerland to Whitehorse, where he made his home out at Marsh Lake for the following 33 years. He worked for Golden Hill Ventures/Cobalt Construction and retired in 2016. He spent the last 10 years with his partner, Ursula, traveling between her home in southern California and the Yukon.

    We were deeply shocked to learn of the unexpected death of Pius. Last summer, we were still making plans together – Pius and Ursula wanted to visit us in Germany. We got to know him as a good, reliable friend. My parents Congo and Marga were also friends with Pius. It is impossible to find the right words of consolation. It will certainly take a while to come to terms with the difficult loss. However, you should try to keep the many wonderful things you did together in your heart. We wish you all much strength for this difficult time. Our thoughts are with you.

    Definitely one of my favorite people I’ve met in my life. A wonderful loving father and an all around kind soul. In life I think about how it’s all about how we are remembered, and he is remembered as a great guy… I wish all who had the honor of knowing him all the healing and happiness and peace and strength to carry on his light hearted essence. Much love all.

    He was such a wonderful man. So sorry to hear of his passing. Every time I would see and speak with Pius, he was always smiling and so pleasant. His positivity and love for life was definitely infectious. He is remembered fondly in Dawson City. My deepest condolences to his family and friends all over the world. Much love and admiration for this beautiful soul.
