Husband, father, grandfather and friend, at age 92, passed on January 10, 2022 to be reunited in the arms of his beloved wife, Louise.
He is survived by six loving children, Dianna (Karl) Klassen, Nancy (Wolf) Trauer, Bruce (Linda), Warren (Tracy), Jim (Linda) and Glen (Debra); ten grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandsons.
He spent the majority of his life living and raising his family in St. James, retirement at his California home or the cottage he built at Gull Lake. He was employed initially as a "tin basher" at Duckworth Sheet Metal and finished out his career in maintenance as a Boiler Engineer for the St. Vital School Division, retiring with Mom in 1990.
Our gratitude is extended to the wonderful caregivers on 2 East at Oakview Personal Care Home where he resided for the past 4 years.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Salvation Army Manitoba or the CNIB Manitoba.
As requested by Dad, cremation will take place and a Celebration of Life will be held at Gull Lake later this year.
