Bertram Thomas Craddock
Nov. 4, 1928 to Feb. 3, 2013
Our father Bert Craddock passed away peacefully on Sunday, Feb. 3 with family at his side. He is once again where he wants to be, with our mom.
He will be forever missed by his daughter Joanne (Rick); son Robert (Crystal) and daugher Sandra (Wayne); grandchildren Bryan, Kendra, Meghan, Jodie, Jordy, Amy, Madison, Lisa and Alex; great grand children Caitlin and Matea; sister-in-law Peggy Phillips along with many nieces and nephews.
Bert was born in Winnipeg and raised in the West End for most of his life. He attended Isaac Brock and Daniel McIntyre Schools. He excelled in sports and broke many records for track and field. He joined the Cameron Highlanders of Canada from 1947 to 1950 and completed his Apprenticeship for Painting and Decorating in 1951. He has belonged to IUPAT Local 739 for 61 years and was very proud of that.
The family would like to thank the staff at Ericksdale Hospital who went above and beyond with their kindness and support.
We invite family & friends to join us on Saturday Mar. 2, 2013 at 1:30 - 4 p.m. at the Waterfront Centre, 5th floor (Johnson Hall) 94 - 1st Avenue Gimli to celebrate the life of this kind and gentle man.
Should friends so desire donations can be made to Betel Home Gimli or The New Iceland Heritage Museum Gimli.
