Arthur Walter Eiffert was born on August 3, 1932 to Walter and Mary (Seitz) Eiffert in the St Philips District on the family farm. He passed away peacefully with his loving wife and family by his side at the Kamsack Hospital on July 3, 2017.

Arthur received his education at St Bascilian School up to grade 8. Then went to help his
parents on the family farm. He married the love of his life Lucille (Glute) at St Josaphat’s Ukrainian Catholic Church on October 27, 1962. They made their home at St Philips on the family farm where they did mixed farming. They raised six children Bernadine, Glenn, Archie, Lorne, Loretta and Kevin. The family grew to include 15 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild.

Arthur was a loving husband, incredible father, grandfather and great grandfather. He was extremely close to all his grandchildren and enjoyed teaching them everything he could about life on the farm. Dad enjoyed spending time with family and friends. Family was his
everything. With mom and the rest of his family by his side they would attend sports and
rodeo events in Sturgis, Benito and Swan River, spend hours of blueberry picking by Birch
River, fishing almost every Sunday after mass, Hunting with his sons and close friends. He loved baseball games and every Saturday night was hockey night in Canada…All right or at least at St Philips! Dad spent a lot of time at Uncle Matt Seitz watching his favorite team
Chicago Blackhawks, since in the early days we never had a television. The two of them were cheering loudly and enjoying lemon spread on toast and drinking pop. He also spent lots of time watching hockey with his sons and daughters then good ole’ Pig n’ Whistle came on T.V and look out! It was toe tapping time. Dad loved dancing and singing. He played his guitar endlessly, especially to Stomping Tom Connors and the song Bud the Spud. His voice was
awesome and at times you couldn’t tell the difference between Tom and Dad!

Dad was a handyman of all trades. He was his own mechanic and fixed all his own machinery and vehicles and it was cockshutt machinery, using his favorite tool—the crescent wrench! He was a cattle and grain farmer, carpenter in which he built an addition to the old school house that became our beautiful home. He built mom her wonderful kitchen cupboards which she loved very much. He was a very talented man whom was self-taught.

Mom (I’m sure) was part owner of Heinz Ketchup! He loved his ketchup. He had a favorite black horse and a baby sheep, which would follow him endlessly. One of his favorite
adventures was when he and mom travelled to Rocky Mountain House to visit his son’s family.

Dad was a very loving, quiet, and proud man of what he accomplished. Even in his
forgetfulness; the one thing he remembered were his prayers. During the evenings dad would join mom and pray his favorite prayer Our father and Devine Mercy.

Dad will always be remembered by his laugh, the twinkle in his eye, his gentleness, kindness and great sense of humour.

Art is survived by his loving wife Lucille of 55 years, his children; daughter; Bernadine (Mark) Larocque, grandchildren: Justin (Cheryl) great grandchild; Deacon, Tyson (Bobbie) and Brayden, son; Glenn (Bonnie), grandchildren; Riley (Amber), Jordan (Victoria), son; Archie (Kyla) grandchildren; Jelena (Travis) and Jenna (Andrew), son; Lorne (Cindy), grandchildren; Zachry and Mackenzie, daughter; Loretta (Ed), Bryksa grandchildren; Nathan, Colby and Jaraden, son; Kevin (Angie), grandchildren Dawson, Brooklyn, and  Addison, his sister Dorothy Bochnuik as well as numerous nieces and nephews
