It is with deep sorrow and much love that we mourn the passing of our beloved Father, Grandfather Alvin Klapprat. On January 17, 2023 he was reunited with his wife Alice who was the song of his soul.
He leaves his memories to be cherished by his children, Scott (Jill), Larissa (Doug); grandchildren, Amanda (Kurt), Braden (Sky), Taylor & Ella; great granddaughter, Harley; brother Wilbert (Cecelia) Klapprat; sisters Lorraine (Louis) Germaine, Beverley (Edward) Strick. Nine nieces & nephews, along with many great nieces, nephews, relatives & friends.
Dad was predeceased by his loving wife of 56 years; infant daughter; sister Linda; brother Lawrence & sister-in law Brenda Klapprat; parents Ferdinand & Erna Klapprat; in-laws Joseph & Anne Kunderman.
Dad was immersed in so many parts of the community throughout his life & had many interesting jobs in his career. Some memorable ones are: working for Russell’s funeral home as an undertaker, spending 25 years working in Pinawa at the Atomic Energy plant, ambulance driver & volunteer fire fighter for the Beausejour/Brokenhead Fire Department. Later which he became the Fire Chief. Down the road he became the Fire Commissioner for Winnipeg & teaching instructor at the Brandon Fire College.
Mom & Dad were also involved with the Zion Lutheran Church for many years. Mom taught Sunday School & Dad was part of the chair board, and they loved frequenting gospel jams. His deep love of music had convinced him to pursue guitar lessons. This led to Mom & Dad making wonderful memories together, singing & playing music with family, while making many friends over the years and creating some unforgettable fish fry jams. When Dad wasn’t gardening or jamming, he loved to go fishing & hunting or sometimes just deer watching. He would talk about what a great time he had all year long.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.Print This Obituary & Condolences
