Herman Fehr

Dad was born in Hague, Saskatchewan Sept. 6, 1925 to Abram and Elizabeth Fehr, the 2nd child of 15.

He lived on a farm in Saskatchewan with his family until September 1933 when the Great Depression forced them to leave and try to find a better life in the Peace Country. They were headed down the Peace River when an eddy broke up the scow with all of their earthly possessions. The Family was forced to spend a winter in a cave. In his teenage years he had lots of different jobs so finally in 1947 he headed west to BC where he met Anne Petkau. They were married July 10, 1949 and were married for almost 63 years. Over the years they had 6 children and Dad spent his life either as a mechanic or a faller. In September 1971 dad was in a serious house fire which almost took him from us the first time. He then spent many years as a camp ground attendant for forestry until his retirement. Dad had a large love for his family and enjoyed many times with his children and grandchildren on different adventures. His eyes never failed to light up when we had family gatherings and the children, grandchildren and great grandchildren showed up. Through all of his medical problems dad had over the years he never lost his sense of humor as I am sure all who knew him can attest to. Dad left us peacefully on June 6, 2012 to be with his Lord.
