Dad was born on the family farm in Rainier, AB. In his younger days, dad rode saddlebronc, calf roped, steer undecorated, wild cow milked and later in life team-roped.
Dad farmed and raised cattle most of his life. In 1978, moved to Meadow Lake, SK, to open a Western Store, and to raise and train Running Quarter Horses. The outdoor arena that was built hosted many big team-roping jackpots. Dad roped with all his daughters and his sons-in-law.
Cooking, gardening (loved his flowers), watching wrestling, hunting and fishing, were things he loved to do. At the age of 64, dad had a stroke while out fencing which changed his way of life. He lost his independence which was very hard on dad. It was then that he moved into the Loon Lake Care Home. Dad never gave up and fought till the end. He was very proud of his four daughters and their families, he had 7 grandsons and 2 granddaughters, 4 great grandsons and 1 great granddaughter.
Dad’s final resting spot will be at the Rosewood Cemetery, Dorintosh, SK.
Dad, it’s not goodbye, it’s see you.
