The family of Raymond Triebwasser will forever miss our dear father, grandfather, uncle and friend. He passed away very peacefully on February 16, 2021 in Medicine Hat, Alberta. He was born in Beiseker Alberta, the son of William and Lydia Triebwasser and the last living member of this family at 99+ years.
Raymond loved the farm that he was raised on but he loved family and friends more. Being a very hard and diligent worker at common labor in many different areas, he always gave his utmost best for those around him. His word was as good as his hearty handshake all through his life. The life and times of Raymond were found in the area of Beiseker, Calgary and Lacombe, Alberta with friends and family all along the way. He was known as a very kind and friendly man that never wavered from a strong faith in his Master and Creator.
He was predeceased by his parents, all 13 siblings, many brothers and sisters in-law, his wife Goldie (2014) and his grandson Paul Anthony (2000). Raymond is survived by his daughter Charlene (Richard) Fortsch; his son Wayne (Karen) Triebwasser, as well as two grandsons Robert Anthony (Kari) and Jade Triebwasser (Mara) in addition to numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and their families.
Weather permitting, a small family gathering will be held at the Fairview Cemetery in Lacombe on the afternoon of Tuesday, February 23rd at 2:30 p.m. for a final farewell at this time, ever looking forward to carry on this great legacy rooted in wonderful memories.
In lieu of flowers, cards and gifts please honor Raymond’s love for the ongoing work being done in Nicaragua by his beloved missionary friends of Lacombe, Norman and Nancy Hansen, who offer their services as pilot and medical missionaries through Miracle Air.
