FANDRICH, Otto

June 5, 1919 – February 24, 2019

Otto passed away peacefully, just 3 months short of an entire century on this earth. He had a full, productive life, mostly engaged in farming and ranching first on his parents homestead north of Medicine Hat, and then later established another operation in the Cypress Hills of Saskatchewan, near Eastend. Otto was a fine carpenter, welder, jack-of-all trades and an exceptionally good baker and cook.

Otto was predeceased by his wife, Paulene in 1996. He lived in Cochrane with daughter, Delaine, and moved to Bethany Care Centre in 2015, where he was at the time of his passing. He was a devoted family man, adored by all who knew him. He loved participating in the activities at Bethany and remained alert and robust nearly until the end. He is survived by eldest daughter Sharon (Dan) Toudy, daughter Delaine Nelson and son Garreth (Sandy) Fandrich, grandchildren and great grandchildren. While he will be sadly missed, we are so blessed to have had him with us for an exceptionally long while.

There will be a memorial in Cochrane planned for a later date in June of this year. We would like to acknowledge and thank the staff at Bethany Care for the care and compassion Dad received there. Also, a special thank you to
devoted friend, Bob Keon, who visited him faithfully for many years.

Arrangements entrusted to Cochrane Country Funeral Home, Florence (Flo) Simpson, Funeral Director. Ph: 403-932-1039.
