FERBRACHE

Wilfred David Blair Ferbrache, aged 81 years of Moose Jaw, SK passed away on Wednesday, September 4th, 2019.  He was predeceased by his brothers, Harold and Victor; and sisters, Dorothy and Alberta.  Wilf is survived by his wife, Elizabeth; sisters Lesley, Winnie, Linda and Kathleen; brothers Eugene, Vernon and Jules, his children: Kerri (Ken), Blair, Debra Ann, Joanne, Wilfred David, Michael Darin, Perry, and Theresa; and step-daughter, Lori.  Wilf had a challenging start to his life as, at the age of 10, he had to take on the responsibility of looking after his sisters while their mother was away.  He started driving trucks at the age of 15 and retired from trucking 40 years later.  During this time, he drove long haul and locally, and travelled all over North America.  He worked various jobs after that but mostly loved being an addictions counsellor at the Angus Campbell Center, saying it was the best and most rewarding 6 years of his life.  Wilf loved to sing and play his guitar, and listen to county tunes.  He loved to be in his backyard entertaining his family and friends.  Wilf loved his pets, Gypsy was his best buddy and Sadie was his little sweetheart.  A Celebration of Wilf’s Life will be held at a later date.  Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane.  Michelle Surtees, Funeral Director 306-693-4550 www.moosejawfuneralhome.com
