1936 ~ 2022

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of our husband, father, and grandfather, Ted Lemperger, on April 24, 2022. Ted leaves behind his beloved wife, Gladys Lemperger of Medicine Hat, AB. His children, Ted Lemperger (Kathy), Eric Kolbe, Teresa Bailey, and Ilonka Lemperger. He will be greatly missed by his grandchildren, Emma Bernhardt, Shane Lemperger, Samantha Lemperger, Kiana Bailey, and Eden Lemperger. Ted was born in Budapest, Hungary on September 18, 1936. He immigrated to Canada in 1956 where he first made his way to Saskatoon, SK for a short period of time before settling in Toronto, ON where he had his son, Ted, and began his lifelong career as a painter. His life later led him to Edson, AB where he met his wife of 38 years bringing into his life his step children, Eric and Teresa. Ted and Gladys gave birth to Ilonka Lemperger in 1986. Ted loved his garden and spent many hours in the yard and greenhouse tending to his vegetables and flowers. His greenhouse was also where you would find him in the wintertime listening to the radio by the wood stove welcoming anyone in for a beer and visit. Ted spent his last years at River Ridge Care Home, where he enjoyed watching his Toronto Maple Leafs, eating cinnamon buns, and wrapping both staff and his family around his finger with his crooked smile, wittiness, and heart of gold. “As I’ve grown up you’ve grown to be my best friend”. Love always, Teresa. There will be no funeral service. Condolences for the family may be sent to www.saamis.com or to condolences@saamis.com subject heading Ted Lemperger.
