Obituary of Willie Nimrichter

Willie was the most honest, loving and dedicated husband, father and brother you could want. He moved to Bonanza in the year of 1964 on the farm where he lived until his passing. He loved farming and worked very hard, he never had much money he never complained and always managed with what he had. He was a very generous person and kind to everyone.

Willie did a lot of concrete work to help out the farmers around his community, but would never accept any money for his work, just an appreciation for a job well done and was very proud that he could do something for someone else. That was the kind of person he was, always giving but never accepting anything in return. Willie took pride in his work and that's the way he taught his children, to work hard for what you want, but also to enjoy what you are doing.

There was no job to big or too small that he could or would not handle. Whenever anyone came to Willie's for a visit the first thing he would say was "June, put the coffee on". And when the coffee was on then he would say, "June, make something to eat, these people are hungry." He always made sure that when you left his home you did not go away hungry. Willie also had a very green thumb when it came to flowers and house plants.

Willie will surely be sadly missed by his whole family and by anyone who knew him.

A Funeral Service was held on Friday, April 25th, 2008 at 2:00 pm at the Bonanza Hall, Bonanza, Alberta. Pastor Joe Mrak officiated, interment was held in the Hill Haven Cemetery.
