February 3, 1954 - April 4, 2022
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our brother Sydney Reimer of Arborg, MB on April 4, 2022 at Arborg Hospital at the age of 68 years.
Syd was predeceased by his parents, Abe B. Reimer in 1997 and Betty Reimer in 2014.
Remaining to cherish Syd's memory are siblings: Harold (Marlene) of Arborg, Rose (Allan) Dueck of Landmark, Janice (Delmer) Plett of Arborg, Tim (Alvina) of Arborg, Cliff (Lucille) of Winkler, Ted (Irene) of Winkler, Bruce (Evalina) of Arborg, Rick (Elaine) of Arborg, Lyndon (Vi) of Arborg; 53 nieces and nephews and their spouses; 32 great-nieces and nephews.
Syd was born on February 3, 1954 in Steinbach, MB to Abe B. and Betty Reimer. The family lived in Steinbach until April of 1961, when Syd was seven years old and then moved to Morweena, MB.
In Syd's childhood and early adult life in Morweena our family was farming but this occupation gave way to moving buildings and this became Syd's career. When dad retired, Syd became part owner of Reimer Building Movers, along with brothers Harold and Bruce from 1994 until his death.
Work and travel largely defined Syd's life. In his independence, Syd often traveled alone, but many trips were taken with friends Xay and Vandy Lee and their family. Syd traveled to Laos multiple times, Thailand, China, Germany, Mexico, Belize, Great Britain, coast to coast in Canada, plus multiple destinations in the USA.
Kindness and generosity also defined Syd's life. Syd loved his community and family and took genuine interest in the many people he met either through work or travel. He loved to attend local informal events, chatting with neighbors, drinking coffee and eating together. Syd's generosity led him to assist in humanitarian projects and he gave liberally to charitable causes.
A public meet, greet and eat will take place on April 9, 2022, 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Crossings Funeral Care, Steinbach.
Funeral service will be held at 3:00 p.m. on April 10, 2022, at Morweena EMC, Morweena, MB.
The family wishes to thank Dr. Komolafe at Arborg Hospital as well as Dr. Beiko at Health Sciences Centre for their professional care for Syd. Tammy and the nursing staff at Arborg Hospital served Syd with top-notch respect and honor! We thank you sincerely. - The family
