Augsburgs Ehrenbürger Kurt F. Viermetz war am Abend des 25. November nach einem Krebsleiden im Alter von 77 Jahren verstorben. Heute nahm seine Heimatstadt Abschied von diesem wahrhaft ehrenwerten Mann.

In Pfersee aufgewachsen hatte Viermetz sein geliebtes Augsburg auch nicht vergessen, als ihn das Berufsleben nach der Ausbildung zum Bankkaufmann bei der Deutschen Bank in Augsburg in die weite Welt gezogen hatte. Seit 1965 war er für das amerikanische Bankhaus J.P. Morgan aktiv. In New York, Paris und Frankfurt war er in führender Position tätig und wurde zum weltweit geschätzten Fachmann. Nach seiner aktiven Zeit bei J.P. Morgan übernahm er den Vorsitz des Aufsichtsrats der Bayerischen Hypo- und Vereinsbank AG (1999-2002), später der Hypo Real Estate Holding AG (2003) und der Deutschen Börse AG (2005-2008).

Ein Familienmensch mit einem großen Geberherz

Privat hatte die Familie einen hohen Stellenwert für den Banker. Mit seiner 2007 verstorbenen Frau Felicitas hat Viermetz gemeinsam Sohn Maximilian. Er war es auch, der heute bei der Gedenkstunde im Goldenen Saal des Augsburger Rathauses die Worte der Familie sprach. Vor drei Jahren hatte er mit Hannelore ein zweites Mal geheiratet.

Neben seiner Familie lag ihm seine Heimat am Herzen. Viermetz bewies sein großes Herz in der Unterstützung zahlreicher sozialer Projekt in und um Augsburg. Auch als Stifter und Mäzen machte er sich einen Namen. So erfuhr die Uni Augsburg, deren Hochulratsvorsitzender er von 2002-2007 war, große Zuwendungen. Besonders wird  sein Name aber im Rahmen der Kunst– und Kulturförderung erhalten bleiben. Schazelerpalais und Maximilanmuseum wurden mit seiner Hilfe saniert. Im Museum in der Innenstadt trägt der Innenhof seinen Namen, dessen Überdachung er mit seiner Felicitas und Kurt Viermetz Stiftung ermöglicht hatte. Zudem wären unzählige Kunstschätze ohne die finanziellen Zuwendungen nicht nach Augsburg (zurück) gekommen.

Doch auch die Diözese Augsburg und auch deren Musiker unterstütze der gläubige Katholik von Kräften. Das Bläserensemble der Dommusik und die Domsingknaben gestalteten das heutige Requiem im Hohen Dom. Anschließend fand auf dem Hermanfriedhof die Beisetzung des Ehrenbürgers, unter der Anteilnahme zahlreicher Persönlichkeiten des öffentlichen Lebens, statt.
