Death Notice

I am new to this forum. I am a Swiss-American, living in the United States, but I was born in Switzerland, leaving when I was 1-1/2 years old. I am looking to find an "Official" death notice or obituary for a relative that passed away earlier this week in the Interlaken, Switzerland area. His name is [removed] and he was approximately 80 years old. Can someone help me with how to find this information?

Thank-you for your help in this matter.

Thank you so much for your quick response, Tom. We, the American Family really appreciate it!

Thanks again for your help, I am curious if these are available with English Translation? Thanks so much!

Re: Death Notice

Give me five minutes and I'll give you a rough translation.


We are grateful for your life here on earth and also that you are still here in our thoughts.
We are grateful that you have left your mark on our lives and that you continue to do so.
We are grateful that we were able to be a part of your unique life.
Our thanks are greater than our sorrow.

Deeply sad but with deep thankfulness for the many wonderful moments, we said goodbye to our dear Aschi, Papi, Päpu (these will be special names used for him by close relatives)

[name removed] - 11. Novemebr 1936 to 5. November 2015

We are deeply touched by the sympathy we have experienced in the difficult hours since the sudden death of our dear Aschi, Papi and Päpu. So many helping hands, meaningful embraces, kind words, personal help and presents, which have given us great comfort and allow us to look with hope into the future.



This is not a word for word translation but I hope that it conveys the meaning to you all.
Thinking of you.
