Wenzel Platz

May 27, 1937 – June 04, 2022

It is with heartfelt sadness that we announce the passing of Wenzel Platz, on June 4th, 2022, at the age of 85 years.

Wenzel was predeceased by his wife Maria, son Peter and youngest daughter Sylvia. He is survived by his oldest daughter Monica, grandsons Shane & Sheldon Gulbranson, great-grandson Owen Gulbranson, great-grandaughter Georgi Gulbranson and by his half-sister in Germany.

At the age of 20, Wenzel came to Canada from Germany. He recalled the long trip by train from the shipyard in Nova Scotia, through the never-ending flat barren prairies, to little Saskatoon, and believed he might have made a mistake coming here. Wenzell and Maria became members of the German Concordia Club back in the 1960’s when it first opened in Saskatoon.

Wenzel had taken his training as a machinist in Germany, at the Mercedes Benz factory, and he worked for Sask Power until his retirement at the age of 55. He would fondly reminisce about his Sask Power co-workers and their many memories.

Wenzel was an extremely meticulous, hard-working individual and was still working on many garden projects right to the end. Even while he was living with severe chronic health conditions for decades.

He is deeply missed by his surviving family and the members of the German Club who have known him for decades.

A Celebration of Wenzel’s life will take place on Tuesday, June 14, 2022, at 11:00 a.m. at Cherished Memories Funeral Home Chapel, 591 Centennial Drive North, Martensville, SK.

Glen Whitehead

We are extremely heartbroken to announce the passing of Glen Darrel Whitehead on Saturday, March 19, 2022 , after a lengthy illness.
Glen was born in High River Alberta on June 22, 1962, and grew up on the family farm til his family moved to Moose Jaw Sk.   With his grandparents only feet away these were his fondest memories as a child growing up.   The farm is just outside Nanton Alberta on the Little Bow River and provided Glen with a vast amount of “playground “. We heard stories of helping in the kitchen…with which I should add shaped his culinary talents because could he cook and bake!  To outside with his grandpa, dad & older brothers working on the farm haying, picking rocks or perhaps fixing fence.  Or maybe taking out his favorite horse and he would be off…
His artistic abilities started shining through at a very young age from playing the violin to drawing and painting to later with his fabricating bodywork and love for restoring vehicles.
Recently in 2020/21 his paintings caught the eye of the Saskatoon Art Gallery. Perhaps someday you can see his artwork hanging.
Glen started work at a young age, from helping his mom at home to enjoying seismic work in the bush ” walking the reel”, to running his own janitorial crew to working in wrecking yards too owning his own bodyshop/mechanical business…and he even got his 1A .  He was always creating something with his hands.
His talents have been passed onto his children as their dad lives on in each of them. They have the very best of their dad in each of them and he was so proud!  Glen’s love for his animals was a huge part of his life as well…. he will be joined by a few and missed by many…
Throughout the years Glen formed many long-lasting friendships that remained til his passing.  If he could help a friend, he was there!
Survived by his children Donald (Jessie) Heather and Justin (Patience).  His granddaughter Emberley, mother of his children and friend Bonnie. Mom Jean Jackson,  Brothers; Doug, Brian, and Greg (Christina), his sisters; Monica (Perry), Janelle (Darren)
His mother-in-law Nancy McRae, Sisters-in-laws Laura Spivak, Michelle McRae (Scott) and Debbie McRae.
As well as numerous nieces & nephews cousins aunts and uncles.
Glen is predeceased by his father and his grandparents, his brother-in-law Greg Spivak, his sister-in-law Jackie Whitehead and most recently his father-in-law Donald McRae
Glen’s wishes were to have a party – so a party we shall have..It’s a two-part party…..

Please join us on Saturday June 25th at the Borden Town Hall from 1pm to 4pm for A Celebration of Glen’s Life. We will be serving a light lunch with a slide presentation of Glen’s life …
We hope to hear many stories.
To celebrate Glen’s passion for the outdoors with the weather on our side we will be hosting a stk BBQ on the riverbank south of Radisson in the evening. If weather doesn’t cooperate, its a  BBQ at our house. For those wishing to join us bring your chair, BBQ if you can and fishing rods, as well as warm clothes and byob.

Bob (Robert) Forster

Surrounded by family, Bob (Robert) Forster passed peacefully on May 26th, 2022.
Bob’s path started out on August 24,1945 in Virden Manitoba as Robert David Forster to his beloved parents David and Mollie Forster.
Right off the hop, Robert (who became Bob when he entered the RCMP at age 21 years) was what one would call “a character”. His sense of mischief was legendary.
Following his training at Depot, Bob’s RCMP career began in Rosetown SK, eventually leading back to Regina where he started his family.
His next post would be Carlyle, where the family (and beltline) continued to expand. Here, a station wagon designed for 6 (but filled with 8) could be seen twice a year heading south of the border to Minot for school supplies, all day swims, and the creation of countless memories.
Cpl Forster was then stationed at Fillmore, where he took on the role of Unit Commander.
Bob’s final stop with the RCMP was running a detachment in Pierceland, but this time as Sergeant Forster (aka ‘Large Sarge’) – Bob’s desired rank as a Mountie, and befitting of his interest in hands-on policing.
For those in the know, Bob’s time in the RCMP was ‘spicy’ – always putting his family, those in his command, and those most in need first (Much to the chagrin of some of them ‘higher up’ types).
He retired from active policing in 2000. However, Bob’s contributions were not complete as he continued working in an advisory capacity for the RCMP through to 2021 capping just shy of 54 years of service to the public.

Bob’s next adventure began in 2006 when he met his love, Donna. After several years of courtship, he dropped to one knee (and as legend has it, needed a hand back up) proposing in Christmas of 2015 – they wed in 2017.
These were wonderful years for Bob, as he and Donna spent time traveling to BC to visit friends and family, tending to Donna’s yard in Semans, and racking up the miles traveling back and forth to visit the greatest gifts of his life – his 6 children and many grandchildren.
Visits from Dad were far too many to count over the last 2 decades. Be it by car, plane, or motorcycle, a visit from ‘Gramps’ meant family was in for too much coffee, a few too many meals, tall tales, and endless laughs.
They were always something to look forward to, and every time he left, life felt a little melancholy. Dad, you were a father and grandparent like no other. We love you and miss you.
Bob had an innate sense of exuberance, passion and fun which he shared with his family and friends throughout his life. He had an extraordinary sense of justice and integrity which stood him in good stead when teaching his children and working in the RCMP.

Robert/Bob/Dad/Gramps will be loved and remembered always by His loving wife Donna, His children (with former wife Gail) David (Delphine), Tamatha (Des), Steven (Amanda), Sarah (Lynn), Ashley, Andrew (Shookria), His Grandchildren Jesse, Tegan, Mattea, Sydney, Lilli, Makena, Aiden, Naveigh, Gabriel, Huxley, Emerson, Tyven, Josslyn, Ethan, His Sister, Vicki and numerous family and friends.
Funeral services will be held at St. Mary’s Parish in Saskatoon Wednesday June 1st at 10:30AM.
For those unable to attend the service in person, a livestream of the service will be able to view at  https://youtu.be/ccV9Li6DYuw
