After a five year battle with heart failure, Brad Dueck passed away peacefully at the age of 57 years at the St. Boniface hospital on Saturday, January 14th, 2023 surrounded by his family. He was predeceased by his parents, Martin & Anne Dueck.
He is lovingly remembered by his wife Sandy, son Austin, Daughter Marlie Whitman and husband Ryan, sister Gloria Bishop and husband Orm, sister in law Janet Elias and children Cody & Savannah, brother in law Garry Elias and daughter Isabella, as well as many many close friends and family. Brad was born in Boissevain Manitoba on July 18, 1965. He grew up in Horndean Manitoba and moved to Altona around the age of 12. In 1982, Brad was baptized upon the confession of his faith in Jesus Christ. He met the love of his life, Sandy, at the age of 19, and they were married on September 22, 1990, right here on this stage. He worked at Friesen's for his entire married life, and made many friends along the way. In 1997 they welcomed their first born, a son, and named him Austin. A few years later they welcomed their second, a daughter, and named her Marlie. As a family, they went on many vacations and spent a lot of time playing board games. He loved music and going to live concerts was something he did often with friends and family. Brad was known for his generosity, thoughtfulness, and more than anything else, his positivity. His strong faith in God was evident to all, and if you were lucky enough to know him, you had a friend for life. Time with family meant everything to him, especially these last years. He enjoyed going to Clear Lake every year, collected wooden painted masks, and went to every bomber game he could. In his later years he loved watching Bomber games in the gazebo, and spent many hours puzzling. As he became too weak to continue working, he bonded even more with their dog, Milly. Brad's deepest desire was to spread the love of Jesus to everyone he came into contact with, and we know that the first words he heard when he entered heaven were "Well done, good and faithful servant".
A celebration of life service will be held on Thursday, January 19th at 2:00 pm at the Altona EMMC. Burial will take place prior to the service at 1:00 pm at Grossweide MB Cemetery, all are welcome to attend. Viewing will be held at the Wiebe funeral home in Altona on Wednesday January 18th between 1:00 and 7:00pm.
The family wishes to thank the staff and doctors at the St. Boniface hospital for all the years of care and support.
