FOX

KONNER FOX, Kelly Wasacase Jr., was born on March 17th, 2001 in Lethbridge, AB and on July 22nd, 2018 has joined his grandmother, Yvonne, in heaven.

Konner Fox has left his family to celebrate his life in heaven. He leaves his mother, Janita Fox (Danny Chief Calf) and his father, Royston Hawke; his grandpa, Lambert Fox; his oldest brother, Sage; Ray James; older sister, Starlight; Jareda, baby sister Keele, Alec & Daisy, Rochelle & Brett, Danielle & Brett; his uncle JR, who was his father figure; his aunt Juliette (Tim), his uncle Jonathan; his favourite aunt Sherry Pard; Sheena Nolan; his favourite cousin Alethea Juliette Black Plume; his loving godmother Diana Weaselfat, and his godfather Mike Fox.

Konner attended Cardston High School and was moving into grade 12. Every school day morning his hair needed to be braided, only by the people he trusted and loved. He always looked forward to going to school every year since he was in pre-school.

Konner was always the one who made the family laugh with his crazy sense of humour. From his tall warm hugs to walking slower because he walked so fast with his long legs. He loved to travel and loved to shop to find different items that were not in Canada. He learned carpentry from his great uncle Charlie Fox.

Konner’s passing has left a big hole in our family. He leaves with his imaginary diaper bag. His beautiful smile. His long braided hair.

We welcome family and friends to attend the wake service, the funeral, and the feast following the church service.

A Wake Service will be held at the Lambert Fox family residence on the Blood Reserve on Thursday, July 26th from 5:00 pm continuing through Friday night. The Funeral Service will be held at St. Paul’s Catholic Church, Brocket on Saturday, July 28th, at 11:00 am.

Anderson, Vernon “Andy”

1929 – 2018

It is with great sadness and very heavy hearts that we announce Vernon Kenneth Anderson (Andy) passed away peacefully surrounded by his family at St. Michael’s Palliative Care on Monday, July 23, 2018 at the age of 89 after a very brave battle with cancer. He is survived by his sons: Christopher Anderson (Toupey) and James Anderson (Roxy); granddaughter: Jamie Anderson-Reid; nieces: Lorena Hillgardner (Rick) and Alberta Willison (Darryl); and Kyle Cole. Andy was born in Lethbridge on April 20, 1929 to Svea and Elmer Anderson. In 1944 Andy joined the Clyde Beatty Circus and worked with them until the fall of that year. He went farming with Stooking Farms until the winter and then was off to Winnipeg where he worked on a few various farms. Andy then moved to Claresholm. In the spring of 1945 he took on a construction job and travelled to British Columbia where he worked for a logging camp. While working at the logging camp, he was picked up off the street and was sent to fight fires. Andy travelled to the Great Lakes and sailed on a tanker ship as a deck hand before going home for Christmas. In 1946, Andy then sailed for the Gordon Brothers as a deck hand; on another ship for Canadian Pacific Rail; and then went to Union Steamship. Due to a freeze up on the steamships in the Christmas of 1949, he joined the Air Force. He was then shipped to Ontario, England, and France and given the rank as a ME Op. He travelled to England, France, Ottawa, Churchill and then back to Winnipeg, Camp Borden, Toronto, then to Barrington, Nova Scotia and Cold Lake, Alberta with his family. Andy retired from the Air Force in 1977 and moved to Ft. Chipewan from 1980 to 1983. He then moved to Whitehorse until 1991 where he worked until his retirement in 1992, as a diesel electric operator for ATCO. Thereafter, Andy spent 13 years in Claresholm and 10 years in Rocky Mountain House. He then moved to Lethbridge where in spent his last 7 years making everyone laugh around him. Even in his sickness he made the nurses and doctors have smiles on their faces. While in the armed forces in 1953 he met the love of his life, Patricia, and they were married in September of 1953. They were married for 57 years until her passing in 2011. Andy and Patricia had three amazing sons together: Jim, Bill and Chris. Andy travelled the world and loved life to its fullest. He never had a bad word to say about anyone and was always very thoughtful and kind. He had a great sense of humour even in his last days. Andy was predeceased by his mother, Svea Anderson; father, Elmer Anderson; his beloved wife, Patricia Anderson; his beloved son, Bill Anderson; and his sister, Lois Smith. The family would like to express their most utmost appreciation for the love and care Andy was given at St. Michael’s Palliative Care. They will forever be grateful for that. A private family memorial will be held at a later date. Cremation has been entrusted to Martin Brothers Funeral Chapel, Lethbridge, Alberta.
