Now Texas emigrant Werner Boesel has died after a serious illness. As early as 2019 it became known that Boesel was being treated with chemotherapy. Now he succumbed to his leukemia disease.
The TV broadcaster Vox announced this on the “Goodbye Germany” Instagram account. Accordingly, Werner recently wrote: “Only stem cell therapy can save me, but my heart is too weak.”
Boesel died on Sunday evening. His wife Christine said: “With a broken heart I have to inform everyone, my sweet Werner died tonight. RIP (Rest in peace, dR), my love.”
The emigrant ran his Joe’s German Restaurant in Sulfur Springs, Texas for many years. In the end he was looking for a successor.
Per E-mail let Werner know that he and Christine will try to keep the shop open as long as possible. “But that’s no longer a long-term option. I want to hand the restaurant over to good hands, ”said Boesel in the email quoted by Vox.
The corona pandemic hindered sales. But despite all the difficulties, a successor operator was finally found.
The planned opening: mid to late March.
The broadcaster Vox called Boesel “A man with a backbone and an attitude”. And Werner himself said: “I am a life artist who lives his dream.”
Rest in peace, Werner.
