Gerald Lloyd Boschee
June 30, 1946 ~ August 2, 2015
After saying goodbye to his sons and grandchildren, Gerald Lloyd
Boschee, 69, of Medicine Hat, Alberta, passed away peacefully in
hospital on the evening of August 2, 2015, in the loving company of
his wife, Peggy. In the months of his illness he looked forward to
going â€˜homeâ€™ to see his Grandma Sauter. He was also predeceased by his
mother, Erna (nee Sauter); dad, Art Boschee and sister, Shirley
Tkachyk. Among those left to fondly remember him are his wife,
Peggy; sons, Mark (Jana) Boschee and Todd (Tammy) Boschee; stepsons,
John (Sandy) Sackman and Tim (Delayne) Sackman and his grandchildren,
Jessica, Taelynn, Taryn, Elise, Dakota, and Sacha. Gerald was born
on June 30, 1946, in Medicine Hat, Alberta. He had varied work
endeavors including working at his dadâ€™s Massey dealership, working
at Martin Bros. Funeral Home in Lethbridge, farming in Warner, owning
and operating several businesses including a gas station and car lot
in Warner, and a bakery with son, Todd. The longest and most loved
part of his career was as a car salesman for over 40 years and
especially as co-owner of Autos-R-Less. He truly enjoyed sitting and
talking with friends and customers at the car lot; itâ€™s what kept
him going to work every day, six days a week, right to the end.
Gerald (AKA â€œBad-Shot Boscheeâ€) enjoyed hunting pheasant and deer on
the family homestead near Elkwater. He was also an avid trap
shooter, bringing home many a trophy. Gerald volunteered his time as
a member of the Warner Elks Club, Warner Volunteer Fire Department,
and Medicine Hat Hockey Hounds. He also coached his boysâ€™ hockey
teams, which always won the â€˜Best-Behavedâ€™ and â€˜Cleanest Dressing
Roomâ€™ awards. Gerald was very proud of his children and grandkids,
bragging about them every chance he had. He loved talking with his
grandchildren, eager to hear about all their accomplishments . . .
and boyfriends. Gerald loved good food, good friends, and good
times, including yearly trips to Mexico with Peggy and their many
great friends. His family will miss his good-natured teasing,
laughter and just a bit of complaining at holiday gatherings. The
funeral service will be held at Holy Family Parish, 1451 Strachan Rd
S.E., Medicine Hat, on Saturday, August 8, 2015, at 11:00 a.m. with
Reverend Barrett Scheske officiating. As a kid at heart and a loving
