CARL GEORGE BIEBRICH January 25, 1929 - November 6, 2018 With his family by his side, Carl peacefully passed away on November 6, 2018 at the age of 89 at Gimli Community Health Centre. Left to cherish his memory, his wife of 63 years, Marion, children, Rodney, daughter-in-law Debbie, Brian (Cynthia), grandchildren, Jennifer (Neil), Tamara (Mike), Mark (Amy), Denyse (Scott), Charlene (Trevor) and David (Charlene) and 11 great-grandchildren and numerous extended family. Carl was predeceased by his son Kelvin. Carl was born in Manigotagan and grew up in the Whitemouth area on the family farm. He settled in Winnipeg and worked with the City of Winnipeg for 31 years in the Public Works Department. He worked hard and loved to spend time in nature, including 27 years with a cottage at Lake St. George. In the summer he spent time fishing, birdwatching, and tending to their gardens. Carl and Marion relocated to Gimli for their retirement and have been active community members of New Horizons Seniors Centre. Over his 22 years in Gimli, Carl further explored his lifelong passion for country music and sang with friends in the Crazy 8s. He also expressed his creativity through building and wood carving, and enjoyed curling, snowmobiling and skunking people at crib. He was a storyteller with a great sense of humour. He took great pride in being involved in his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren's lives. He was instrumental in forming strong values and life skills in his children and grandchildren. Carl spent time enjoying the interests of his great-grandchildren, who he adored. Carl will be greatly missed; he was an inspiration to all whose lives he touched. We wish to thank Dr. R. C. Patel and all the staff at the Gimli Community Health Centre for their kind and compassionate care. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to CancerCare Manitoba or the Heart & Stroke Foundation. Cremation has taken place. A celebration of Carl's life will be held Saturday, November 24, 2:00 p.m. at the New Horizon's Seniors Centre, 17 North Colonization Rd., Gimli, MB. Gilbart Funeral Home, Gimli in care of arrangements.
