RICHARD (DICK) ALLAN WIEST dearly loved husband of Karen Wiest, passed away at the Calgary Foothills
Hospital on Tuesday, August 12, 2014 at the age of 76 years.
Dick was born June 13, 1938, at home on the Wiest farm, the youngest of 15 children of Clarence and Edith
Wiest. He received all his schooling at Enchant.
The only time Dick strayed from Enchant was in 1954, when he played for the Taber Junior Baseball Team
and 1958, when he played semi-pro ball for the Vauxhall Jets.
He continued his love for the game playing on the Old Timers team. He loved all sports and played for
many years on the local hockey and baseball teams.
Later, as his boys grew, he went on to coach some of their teams. His favorite pastime was to watch his
boys and grandchildren follow in his footsteps in their love for hockey and baseball. As his family grew,
he learned to expand his sport interests to include figure skating, volleyball, basketball and track.
December 28, 1961, Dick married Karen Odland. They lived in the “Honeymoon Shack” north of Lost Lake
until they purchased the old Herb Stevens house and barn in 1963, and had them moved to their homestead
where he resided for the rest of his life.
Dick always considered himself a real homesteader, as he had to break up all his land and plant each and
every tree. Throughout the years he also raised a variety of livestock such as cattle, chickens, emus and
even peacocks.
Dick has always been very active in his community and was always up for a challenge. He was instrumental
in bringing the following to Enchant: original park and golf course, skating rink, seed cleaning plant
and our local museum. He also served as a member of the Enchant and District Historical Society.
Dick is survived by his wife Karen, his 4 children and their families: Rachelle (husband Brian, children
Taryn & Jonathan Tycholis, Kyla, Eric & Holly, Chelsey) Steeves, Richard (wife Kandis, children Joshua &
Jenna (great grandson Jackson), Mikel, Jordan, Dallas McGrath, Joel McGrath) Wiest, Rodi (Shauna,
children Daniel, Brooke, Dharma, McKenzie) Wiest, and Ryan (wife Cherlynn, children Jaelynn, Kamryn)
Wiest. He is also survived by his brothers Cecil (wife Louise) Wiest and Phil (wife Caroline) Wiest; as
well as numerous nieces and nephews.
He was predeceased by his daughter Shannon Wiest; parents Clarence & Edith Wiest; siblings John Wiest,
Phyllis Howg, Wilfred Wiest, Lola Batalden, George Wiest, David Wiest, Roy Wiest, Mike Wiest, Charles
Wiest, Helen Wiest, Elsie Bryant and Reginald Wiest.
A Visitation will be held at CORNERSTONE FUNERAL HOME, 2800 Mayor Magrath Drive South, Lethbridge on
Monday, August 18, 2014 from 7:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M.
The Celebration of Life will be held at the ENCHANT COMMUNITY HALL, 127 Center Street, Enchant on
Tuesday, August 19, 2014 at 2:00 P.M. with Pastor Jeff Frostad officiating.
In lieu of flowers, in memory of Dick Wiest all donations can be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of

many of his cousins and relatives who also farmed in the area. During WWII, he served in the Royal
Canadian Army with an anti-aircraft battery. Upon his retirement from farming in 1974, Alex and Wilma
moved to Taber. They enjoyed travelling, making many trips to the United States in their motorhome and a
dream trip to Tahiti, Fiji and New Zealand to celebrate their twenty fifth wedding anniversary. Over the
years, Alex enjoyed many pastimes including hunting, fishing, curling and gardening to name a few. Most
of all, the many fishing trips in southern Alberta, often with family and friends were a great enjoyment.
He proudly served as the President of the 60+ organization, was active with Parkside Manor and was a
member of the Royal Canadian Legion where he often served in honour guard details and marched in numerous
Remembrance Day ceremonies. He enjoyed reminiscing with his many friends in the community and valued
their friendship and support over the years.

5512 – 48 Avenue, Taber, Alberta T1G 1S4 or to the St. Michael¹s Health Centre (Palliative Care) 1400 – 9

Alex lived a full, active and healthy life. His final weeks were made so much more comfortable thanks to
the many wonderful caregivers the Lord placed in his path. To Chris, his palliative care nurse in Taber,
the wonderful caring staff on 4B at the Chinook Regional Hospital (special thanks to Patti who cheered up
his days there) and to the amazing staff at St. Michael¹s in the palliative care unit, we thank you all
for helping dad go comfortably onto his eternal journey with his Lord. We look forward to coming together
on Monday with his many friends and relatives to celebrate a life well lived.
