Mr. Ewald Adolf Link of Medicine Hat, beloved husband of Mrs. Anna Link, passed away on Sunday, December 11, 2016, at the age of 84 years.

He is also survived by a sister, Marta Mezei of Medicine Hat; sister-in-law, Herta Link of Medicine Hat; Goddaughters, Barbara (Mervin) Mardian of Dunmore and Beverly Link of Medicine Hat as well as numerous nieces, nephews and in-laws. Ewald was predeceased by his father, Adam (1933); mother, Adeline (1993); brothers, Waldemar (2000) and Albert (2008) as well as two infant sisters, Olga and Adele. Ewald was born on December 15, 1931 in Michelowka, Kr. Luck, Poland. He and his family later relocated to Germany where he was raised and educated. Along with his family, Ewald immigrated to Canada on January 18, 1949. They settled in the Medicine Hat area, where Ewald began work building houses in the construction industry. On April 6, 1957, he met and married Anna Dyck in Medicine Hat. Ewald and his brothers formed Link Brothers Construction. They spent many years building residential and commercial buildings throughout British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan. He enjoyed gardening, growing beautiful roses and vegetables… mainly onions! Later in life, fishing was very dear to him, but nothing topped spending time with family at special occasions.
