Alvey John Halbgewachs
1939 - 2014
Alvey John Halbgewachs passed away at Sunset Extendicare on Saturday, February 15, 2014 following a long and brave battle with cancer at the age of 74 years. Alvey was born October 4, 1939 and was predeceased by his parents George and Minnie Halbgewachs; brother Donald and nephew Arley. He is survived by his loving wife of over 50 years Cecile; two daughters Carol Egert (Shayne) of Regina and Karen Campion (Kevin) of Calgary; three cherished grandchildren, Dylan, Ethan and Naomi. Alvey also leaves to cherish his memory three brothers, four sisters, sisters and brothers-in-law along with numerous nieces, nephews, extended relatives and close friends. Alvey owned and operated his own business for over 40 years in the automotive service industry until he retired and then continued on with his post retirement activity of being a beekeeper. He was an avid fisherman and hunter along with being a faithful Saskatchewan Roughrider season ticket holder for 30 years. The "Honey Man" made many friends over the years and loved nothing better than telling a good joke. His laugh was infectious. A special thank you goes out to all the doctors and nurses who assisted with Alvey's care; you always took time to listen to his stories. Funeral Mass will be held on Saturday, February 22, 2014 at 10:30 a.m. in Holy Cross Parish, 315 Douglas Avenue East, Regina, SK with Rev. Ken Koep Celebrant. Private family interment in Riverside Memorial Park. In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully asks that anyone who wishes may make donations, in Alvey's memory, to the Allan Blair Cancer Centre, 4101 Dewdney Ave., Regina, SK S4T 7T1 or Heart and Stroke Foundation of Sask., 279 – 3rd Ave. N., Saskatoon, SK S7K 2H8.
