The Great Comfort of Chilliwack Lifestyles for Homer Neufeldt
Homer Neufeldt has been in Chilliwack B.C for nearly 88 years. He’s seen the city grow from a small agricultural town to a bustling extension of Vancouver, even helping it along in its growth as a central figure in the building supply business.
He and his wife Jean were constantly on the move over the years, always building new houses and flipping them as they moved from one to another. He jokes that any time Jean wanted to change the colour of a wall, he’d say: ‘Well good, we’ll just go on and build another house and put that colour in.” Read more about Homer here ….
