He was predeceased by his mother May Boessenkool and numerous aunts, uncles and all four of his grandparents.
Greg was the eldest child of Gerry and May Boessenkool. He was a lover of ALL sports with hockey and the Chicago Blackhawks as his favourite team. He spent endless hours watching any and all sports from the comfort of his room. Greg also played many sports including: hockey, baseball, football and golf. He became a coach and umpire with the Softball Association. If you asked him for any hockey stat, he could rattle it off in a second. His dream was to become a sports commentator and he would have made a GREAT one. Unfortunately, a knee injury would curtail his love of participating in any of the sports he so enjoyed.
For many years in the past, Greg was employed as a cook and manager in many restaurants here in Lethbridge and surrounding areas. He took great pride in all of his accomplishments. He will be sadly missed by family and friends.

They moved to Barons in 1927 to farm in the district. Marv was a very hard worker and a man of many talents.

They were blessed with three children; Brenda Lynn, Patricia Dawn and a son Kevin Robert. In 1963, Marv finished building his house and they moved in. Marv also loved to curl and did so into his eighties and golfed up until last year.
Marvin is survived by his son Kevin (Donna); grandsons Jason (Michelle), Jordan Wobick, Robert McPherson and Lindsey McPherson; great-grandchildren Kenna (Wobick) Demaere, Klara and Brady Wobick, Bryan and Amara McPherson; his sister Beverly Perry; and numerous nieces and nephews.
