Following a lengthy battle with lung cancer, Arthur Wiebe of Calgary Alberta passed away on Tuesday, October 26 at the age of 76 years.
Art was born in Poland in 1944. At a very young age, with his mother Helen and his older sister Martha they fled Europe to settle in South America. They started a new life where their family grew to 4 children including Harold and Sandy. From there the family moved to Winnipeg Canada where Art married and had 2 children Arlo and Marla. After life’s many challenges and changes, Art finally settled in Calgary where he enjoyed many late years with his partner Bernice.
Art was a simple man who enjoyed spending time with those who were close to him. Forever the determined and tenacious man, Art’s fatal diagnosis was not taken lightly and he remained steadfast far longer than conventional expectations. Finally, he succumbed to his illness and passed peacefully.
He will be lovingly remembered by his siblings; older sister Martha, younger brother Harold, youngest sister Sandy, his children Arlo and Marla, and grandchildren Haley, Loghan, Austin, and Kaden.
He will also be dearly missed by his many friends in Calgary, staff and friends at Chinook Hospice and Care home.
He was predeceased by his parents Helen & Kurt Harms, and loving life partner Bernice Pettit of 24 years.
