Garnet P. Waldner of Bluffton, Alberta passed away suddenly, but peacefully, at his home on Thursday, September 26, 2019 at the age of 64 years.
In the hearts of Garnet’s loving family, he will always be remembered with many precious memories, especially all the fun times they had together in the meat shop, Rimbey Meat Processing, which he ran with his father for many years. Garnet was also known for being the local Scouts leader for several years, and took great pleasure in many family camping trips. He treasured every opportunity to be surrounded by his family and friends; whether it was when moving cattle or branding them, or just enjoying a simple card or board game. Garnet also appreciated any occasion to visit, and would look forward to attending hall suppers and pancake breakfasts where he loved to tell his stories any chance he had!
Garnet will be greatly missed and lovingly remembered by his beloved wife of 39 years, Anita; two sons, Danny of Bluffton; and Mike (Keri) of Red Deer; and two daughters, Telitha (Brad) McDonald of Red Deer; and Starla (Martin) Ross of Grande Prairie; as well as seven cherished grandchildren: Xander, Colby, Maya, Quinn, Carter, Jasper, and Hunter. He will also be lovingly remembered by his brother, Neil of Joussard, Alberta; his two sisters, Sheila (Mike) Kavanagh of Mission, B.C.; and Della Peabody (Pat Dube) of Pigeon Lake; and his stepsister, Lynn Breen of Innisfail; in addition to Nana Ida Rolin Waldner of Camrose; and Grandma Fay Waldner of Rimbey; plus several nieces and nephews, other family members, and many close friends. Garnet was predeceased by his father, Percy in 2016.
