Obituary of Ralf Hugo Latkolik

Ralf Hugo Latkolik passed away suddenly at his home in Red Deer, AB on June 22, 2022 at the age of 56 years.


Ralf was born on April 8, 1966 in Germany.  Although he moved to Canada with his family when he was just a toddler, he was very proud of his German heritage.  Ralf spent his childhood and the early years of his adult life in Ontario.  He moved to Alberta in his 40’s where he met and married Beverly on June 5, 2012.


Ralf was an extremely creative and talented artist who enjoyed sharing his art with others.  He earned a living as a tattoo artist and was the proud owner of a couple of tattoo shops throughout the years.  He also made many of the pieces of furniture for his home, did numerous charcoal portraits and had the incredible ability to turn “junk” into something beautiful and useful.


Ralf will be forever remembered by his wife; Beverly Latkolik, son; Brandin Hall (Brittanie), brother; Albert Latkolik (Julie), niece; Michelle Shortt (Josh), and nephew; Chris Shortt (Alannah).  He is also survived by several other family members including grandchildren, aunts, uncles, cousins, and step-children and grandchildren.


Ralf was predeceased by his father: Kurt Latkolik (2005), his mother; Wilhelmina “Wilma” (Striedl) Latkolik (2006), and his sister; Konni Pioch (2021).


A memorial service will be held at Kentwood Alliance Church,4 – Kennedy Drive, Red Deer, AB on Saturday, July 16, 2022 at 1:00 pm.


In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be directed to the John Howard Society, 4916 – 50 St. Red Deer AB T4N 1X7.
