Obituary of Henry Wonderham
He was a man of simple tastes and needs. He loved to spend time with Valerie and their dogs. Many road trips, camping trips, picnics and wiener roasts were enjoyed. He was a man with integrity and always looked out for everyone offering sound advice. He was always available to lend a hand to anyone from helping Wayne and Margaret to move farm machinery, pulling bolts out of granary floors, helping Myron sell cars, and hilling Mark and Patty’s potatoes. Henry loved to garden and friends and family will attest to his sound advice at how to plant produce for the best yields. He was also very resourceful. When barbecuing and realizing a turner was not available he improvised with a lid from a tin can and a pair of pliers. He was an active man and enjoyed sky diving, scuba diving and especially bike riding. Even though his mobility declined he maintained his positive attitude and his sense of humour. When he needed a moment to answer a question or offer advice he would gently raise his right index figure. He loved his little room at Canwood where he could look out at the trees and watch the birds at the feeder and care for the variety of plants in his room. He was so very grateful for the care he received in Canwood. His two favourite sayings were “never get old” and “never stop laughing”. A Graveside Service will be held on Saturday July 24, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. at Brightholme Lutheran Cemetery with lunch to follow at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Shellbrook.
