Roy, the eternal farmer, was born on the farm near Vibank, then ventured to his own homestead near Qu’Appelle, where life was centered around farming. Even after moving to Indian Head in 2004, he didn’t stop playing in the dirt until 2011.
Roy was an active citizen in his hometown of Qu’Appelle where he participated and led many clubs, a member of the Indian Head School Board, the Sask Wheat Pool local, the Catholic Church board and a Chartered Member of the Qu’Appelle Lions Club. He is best known for lending a hand whenever someone called for help. In addition to farming, Roy worked for Sask Crop Insurance and was the icemaker at the Qu’Appelle curling rink for many years. His best days were spent visiting with family and friends.
We celebrated Roy’s life with a funeral mass in St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church, Indian Head, Sask. on Tuesday, Feb. 7, 2023 at 10:30 a.m. by Rev. Francis Hengen. A luncheon and time of fellowship immediately followed the funeral mass. A private family interment was held in the Qu’Appelle Cemetery.
Special thank you to the nurses and staff at Indian Head Union Hospital for the care and support during Roy’s last days. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Cancer Foundation of Saskatchewan, #200-4545 Parliament Avenue, Regina, SK S4W 0G3.
