Was married to Lena Dueck for 52 years.
They had 10 children. They had a welding shop and 100 chickens when they started life together.
Moved to Canada.
Worked at Vidir Machine for many years.
Song by the girls: They loved to sing and he would join them. God leads his children sometimes through tough times. Water flood fire but all through the blood. Some through great sorrow but God gives a song, through the night season and all the day long.
Grandpa was a special person and loved us and prayed for us. He said: God's will be done. So glad to know he's singing with the angels. He will be greatly missed. He always thought grandma was so beautiful.
He was always positive and gave us lots of hugs.
He never judged anyone.
Grandpa came to help change my tire. He readily confessed mistakes.
Art the oldest brother says pray for Lena. He worked a lot with Jake.
John's daughters read John's tribute. Jake could say lots with a few words. Rejoicing with you.
