WILFRED ALVIN BUFFI
May 11, 1932 - February 6, 2019
peacefully on February 6, 2019 at Country Meadows Personal Care Home in Neepawa, Manitoba.
He is survived by his siblings; Doris, Jerry (Marlene), Aileen (Ed); nephews, Kevin (Leanne), Jason (Anna), Jonathan, Chris
(Sabrina), Ryan (Jennifer) and their families.
He was predeceased by his parents, John and Magdalena Buffi.
Wilfred was born on the family farm in Waldersee, Manitoba where he grew up
working with his father to tend the farm and raise cattle. In his younger years Wilfred was involved in community activities, enjoying hockey, curling, and even taking part in a community drama. Eventually, with the
passage of time the farm became his sole
responsibility; as he aged, his neighbours
stepped in to help with daily farm work.
In November, 2010, Wilfred suffered a stroke and as a result was unable to resume farm work. Subsequently he spent the next eight in care. His sense of humour remained with him even as his health deteriorated. He will be remembered by his nephews, friends and caregivers for his corny jokes.
The funeral service will be held at Christ Lutheran Church in Waldersee at 1:00 p.m. on May 11, 2019.
The family extends thanks to Ron and
Dennis Mitchler for their help, as well as the caregivers at Baldur Care Unit, Yellowhead Manor Assisted Living and especially
Country Meadows Personal Care Home, for their faithful, loving care of Wilfred. Thanks also to Dr. Desilet and Dr. Wang, as well as
Chaplains, Gladys Anderson, Hildegard and Jim Vickers.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Country Meadows Personal Care Home or Christ Lutheran Church in Waldersee.
Clarke's Funeral Home, Gladstone~MacGregor
