Wilfred, or “Whitey” as he was widely known, was a truck driver who spent his career driving the roads of North America, meeting many friends along the way. He enjoyed working hard, and he had a great pride in what he did. Wilf also liked to travel on his Harley Davidson and made friends everywhere he went. Danny McDonald, Jim Daniels, Mike Mommersteeg, Kevin Brett, Allan Knight, Russ Oldenburger, Russ Yates, as well as many other life-long friends became more like family, and he loved them as such. He loved to make people laugh and was the life of any room he entered. He was always ready to lend a hand to anyone in need. He will be missed beyond measure, and never forgotten.
A celebration of Wilf’s incredible life will be held at the COALDALE COMMUNITY CENTRE, 1217 – 20 Avenue, Coaldale, AB, on Sunday, July 2, 2023, from 2:00 P.M. – 4:00 P.M.
