LAYCOCK

HUGH LAYCOCK, beloved patriarch of the Laycock family, passed away peacefully on Saturday, November 19, 2016 in Lethbridge, Alberta at the age of 93. He was the beloved husband of the late Audrey Laycock.

Survived by his children: Bill (Carol) Lethbridge, Brent (Kathy) Calgary, Kim (Glenda) Raymond, and Roxanne (Mark) Bingham Calgary; 27 grandchildren and 74 great- grandchildren of whom he was very proud. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Audrey, (2007), his daughter Melanie Bastian (August 2016), and his siblings: Harold Laycock, Merne Livingstone, and Ralph Laycock.

To his family and community, he was tall and strong in both physique and integrity. Hugh was born on October 3, 1923 in Lethbridge to George Laycock and Fern Redd Laycock. He married Audrey Storie on December 16, 1943, in the Cardston Temple and moved to the family farm where they raised their five children. In 1973 they returned to Lethbridge.

Most of his working life was devoted to farming, but his focus was on raising his family. For a few years, he worked as a real-estate agent in Lethbridge.

Consistently faithful in the LDS Church, he served in various positions such as bishop, high counselor, and teacher of adults and youth. He and Audrey served at the Cardston Temple, a family history mission in Salt Lake City and a stake mission in Southern Alberta. He happily served others.

Hugh was never bored. His life was filled with creative passions in music, flying, building, inventing, photography and other hobbies. He sang in church choirs, the Choralaires, and many quartets, and he played drums in a dance band as a young man and was a violinist in the Lethbridge Symphony Orchestra for 48 years. At the age of 50, he fulfilled a long-time dream of learning to fly and eventually established the Lethbridge Adventure Flight Centre on the farm where he trained ultra-light pilots until his late eighties. All his talents were used to lift others.

The children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were a source of continual joy for Hugh. He left them a legacy of love, hard work, service and faith.

The family expresses sincere appreciation to the staff at Fairmont Extendicare for their kindness and care.

Friends may meet the family on Friday, November 25 from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. at CHRISTENSEN SALMON GENERATIONS FUNERAL HOME, 703-13 Street North, Lethbridge, or prior to the funeral service on Saturday from 11:00 to 11:45 a.m. at the Church.

Jean Ruth Sinclair (Ekelund)

Jean Ruth Sinclair was born July 19, 1927 at Berkeley, California and passed away peacefully November 12, 2017 in Fort Macleod, AB. Mom was born into a pioneering family and raised on the Ekelund homestead in the Twin Butte area. The Rocky Mountains and Waterton Lakes were always dear to her heart. Mom graduated from High School in Pincher Creek, AB, then bravely headed to Edmonton to become a registered nurse. She graduated from Edmonton General Hospital in 1949. Mom worked at the Fort Macleod Hospital as DON and Operating Room Nurse for 30 years, then at the Haig Clinic in Lethbridge, then the Walker Clinic back in Fort Macleod before retiring.

As well as a stellar nursing career, Mom married Dad, William Francis Cuppen on June 16, 1952 and together they had 5 children. She raised us largely on her own. As you can well imagine, her mantra through our teenage years was “Let go” and “Let God”.

In December of 1979 Mom married George Sinclair and spent many happy years together before George passed away in November, 2006. Mom was an amazing example of someone who met life head-on, and despite hardship, still saw the good in others and the blessings of life. She leaves a lasting legacy of love and steadiness. She was a pillar of strength throughout her years.

Mom was predeceased by her parents Aaron and Ruth Ekelund, and her brothers Jack and Bill, William Cuppen, and George Sinclair. She is survived by her brother Bob (June) Ekelund, and her sister Helen McNab, her children Jack (Connie) Cuppen, Joyce (Jerry) Widmer, Doug (Debra) Cuppen, Nolan (Vicki) Cuppen, Nony (David) Orr, and George’s three sons Lee, Ray, and Dean Sinclair. She is also survived by 17 grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren, and 2 great-great-grandchildren.

A celebration of her life will be held December 17th, 2016 at 1:00 pm with luncheon to follow at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (643-20th Street, Fort Macleod, AB.) Memorial donations gratefully accepted to the Fort Macleod Handi-bus, Box 881 Fort Macleod, Ab T0L 0Z0.
