1959 ~ NEIL JAMES TUMBACH ~ 2020

Posted: October 2nd, 2020

Neil Tumbach of Redcliff, Alberta passed away on Friday, September 18th, 2020, at the age of 61 years. He leaves to cherish his memory his loving wife, Wendy; son, Greg (Vicki) Elgie and their children, Gavin and Nixon; son, Cory Tumbach and his daughter, Kinsley; daughter, Nicole Tumbach (Taylor Johnson); Neil’s beloved mom, Annette Tumbach; nephews, Logan Tumbach and his son, Zavrey; and Kayden Tumbach; sisters-in-law, Julie Tarnasky (Bart), Shirley Cotterhill, Norma (Leo) Shaw, Barbara Stringer, and Janice Gottinger; as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family, and many good friends. Neil was predeceased by his dad, Jim Tumbach; his brother, Troy Tumbach; his father and mother-in-law, Wes and Agnes Stringer; and brothers-in-law, Bill Stringer, Don Cotterhill and Ron Stringer. Neil was born and raised in Medicine Hat. Shortly after graduating high school he began his career as a Commercial/ Industrial Electrician, a career which spanned over 40 years; the last 14 as a member of the ‘Spider Electric Family’ where many lasting friendships and lifelong memories were made. Neil had many passions in life, but few were as important to him as spending time with his children and grandchildren. He often reminisced of all the hours he enjoyed on the benches of freezing hockey rinks and dusty baseball diamonds of Greg and Cory’s teams. However, it was his daughter Nicole who shared his love of horses and when he retired from his coaching duties, he would spend his evenings in the field, helping her care for her quarter horse, TJ. A celebration of Neal’s life will take place at a later date. In honour of his memory donations may be made to the Alberta Heart & Stroke Foundation, 200, 119 – 14th Street NW, Calgary, AB T1A 7L5.

  1. Steve, Andrea, Avery and Reese Meyer says:

    Our heartfelt condolences to you and the family Wendy. We will always remember Neil with warm regards as he always took the time to come and share stories and take the kids to see the horses whenever we came to visit. Steve as a kid, always looked forward to coming out to the “Hat” to be teased by his much loved older cousins. Neil liked to show them the ‘turbo’ button in his car that only he was allowed to touch.
    We will keep you all in our hearts and send strength and healing thoughts through this difficult time. Much love, The Meyer Family
