It is with profound sadness that the family announces the sudden passing of Brian Lynn Waldbauer, beloved husband of Karen, on Saturday, June 9, 2018, at the age of 66 years. Along with Karen, Brian’s memory will be forever cherished in the hearts of his family; daughter, Teresa (Ray) Gaetz and their children, Zachary, Tanner and Kiandra; son, Dwayne (Cheryl) Waldbauer and their children, Harley, Holly, Dawson and Mackenzie; parents, Lawrence and Vivian Waldbauer; sister, Alice Hamilton; brother, Gordon (Jan) Waldbauer and sister-in-law, Linnette Waldbauer. Brian also leaves behind Karen’s family; sisters-in-law, Betty Anne (Irwin) Neil and Janice Smithson; brother-in-law, Cliff (Lesley) Bollinger and mother-in-law, Olga Weiss as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Brian was predeceased by his brother, Leslie Waldbauer; father-in-law, Edwin Bollinger; brother-law, Lloyd Hamilton and nephews, Jay Hamilton and Chuck Hauck. Brian’s life revolved around his family. His love for Karen, his children and grandchildren were expressed daily and were his pride and joy. His love of life on the farm, his horses and cattle were his heart. His time riding horses with his kids and grandchildren were his proudest moments. He was wise, proud and always welcoming to family and friends. He touched many hearts with his passion and kindness. His laughter was contagious and he always was full of stories and loved to make others smile. His spirit was unprecedented and he was always there to lend a hand and help out others. Our cherished cowboy rides away......riding his precious colt, Kit he trained and loved. We find peace knowing he’s living the rancher’s dream in heaven with heaven’s horses. Ride Like the Wind Cowboy..........We love you! He is forever in our hearts and memories and will be sadly missed by all whom had the pleasure of knowing him. Until we meet again............. In honouring Brian’s wishes, no formal funeral service will be held. ln lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Brian’s name may be made directly to Halo, 12 - 49 Viscount Avenue S.W., Medicine Hat, Alberta, T1A 5G4.

So sad to learn of your loss.
Please know our prayers and thoughts are with you.
Karen and family,
I just wanted to send you our condolences on the loss of Brian. It has been about a month since Brian has passed on and, I am sure at times you wish you could stop the world and get off, but life forces you to go on. It is never easy and, yes, time lessens the pain but it does not disappear. Small triggers continually remind us of that our loved one is no longer with us and the tears begin all over again. The loss of my dad, Otto Gross, is still very fresh in my mind and the triggers come often and out of the blue and the silent tears fall again. May your tears bring healing as you walk through this valley.
Ingrid and Frits Dekker
