VICTOR EDMUND KAUPP, beloved husband of LaVerne Kaupp of Lethbridge, passed away peacefully at the St. Michael’s Health Centre – Palliative Care Unit, on Monday, June 14, 2021 at the age of 83 years.

Along with his wife, Victor is lovingly remembered by his sons, Ryan (Lisa) and Allan (Marlene) Kaupp; grandsons, Bryce, Brock (Tamaris) and Sean (Paige) Kaupp; sister, Mildred and brothers, August (Anne) and Lawrence (Dianna).

He was predeceased by five sisters and two brothers.

Victor was born in Lethbridge, June 23, 1937 and resided in New Dayton for most of his life where he farmed, supported community events, played in a dance band, curled, and played baseball. He served as President in many Associations including that of the New Dayton History Book. This was a project close to his heart and was completed in 1978 after many years of working as hard as he could to find everyone that ever lived in that area.

Victor enjoyed traveling when he had time and the money to do so. He was a farmer at heart and planted a garden large enough to feed everyone in New Dayton.

Victor was a kind, caring and generous person, a man of integrity, had a wonderful sense of humour and loved his family deeply. We will miss him forever.

His family would like to thank the Staff of the Palliative Care Unit, especially Celeste, for their excellent and loving care they gave our husband, father and grandfather. Our prayers will be devoted to all of you.

A Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Saturday, June 19, 2021 at 12:30 P.M. with Father Kevin Tumback celebrating. The Mass will be live-streamed and may be accessed via Victor’s obituary on the Cornerstone website.

Victor will be laid to rest in Mountain View Cemetery.

In memory of Victor, donations may be made to STARS Air Ambulance (stars.ca/ways-to-donate/ab/) or The Heart and Stroke Foundation (hsf.donorportal.ca/)
