FAUSER
MR. HORST FAUSER, of Lethbridge, passed away at the Calgary Foothills Hospital, Burn Unit, on Thursday, November 14, 2013 at the age of age of 82 years.
He is survived by his three children and their families, Ulla Susanne (Paige and Michael), Robert (Sandy) and Elke (Shawn, Sébastien, Heather, Geneviève, Marc-Antoine and Jennifer).
Horst is also survived by his sister, Ingrid in Weimar, Germany, her two daughters Karin and Dagmar, their families and his beloved Ellen.  He was predeceased by his parents, Curt & Ilse, both of Weimar, Germany.
Horst came to Canada in 1959, after completing his journeyman, plant supervisor and Masters Papers in the Dairy Industry.  He took on cultured products at the Purity Dairy and was the first to make yogurt in Alberta in 1959/60.  In 1969 he purchased the Star Market and fulfilled a dream to be his own business owner. He learned a whole new set of skills as a landlord for many years as well.  A deep appreciation for the opportunity to hunt and fish in Canada led to his lifelong involvement in the Fish & Game Association serving as President of both the local Lethbridge Club and the Provincial Association as well as a term as Director of the Canadian Wildlife Federation. He was proud of his Outdoorsman of the Year Award.
Some of his favorite accomplishments were the reintroduction of wild turkeys in various locations in AB and BC and the establishment of the McGillivray Youth Camp in the Crowsnest Pass. He won numerous awards, titles and certificates over the years for both his hunting and his wildlife conservation efforts.  He so loved the outdoors that he spent a great majority of his life’s leisure time at his cabins at Lee Lake and at Kootenay Lake.  Dad was sure to see the world as well. He went on many trips from Antarctica to Alaska, China, Japan, throughout eastern Canada, to beaches and islands, through canals and over the Andes and also of course repeated flights over the years to Germany to visit family and friends, travel about and even hunt wild boar.
Dad was proud of his children and grandchildren, he was proud of his adventures and travels and his life.  He loved his Bismarck, his German music, regular card games with good old friends, a good criminal novel and of course hunting and making his own amazing sausages.
