Obituaries: Alexander “Alex” Gottfried
September 23, 1928 ~ January 1, 2021 (age 92)
It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of their beloved husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, brother, uncle and friend, Alex Gottfried.
Alex passed away suddenly on the morning of January 1, 2021, on the family farm.
He will be greatly missed by his loving wife of 64 years, Jean, his 3 children, 7 grandchildren and their families including 8 great-grandchildren: Lorne (Adeline) Gottfried; Candice (Darrell) Kraft and their children Connor, and Reece; Steven Gottfried (Emily); Kimberly (Fred) Leibel and their children Madden and Hadlyn. Glen (Shelley) Gottfried, Randy Gottfried (Laura), Brian (Kierra) Gottfried and their children Adam, Jackson and Collins. Della (Clayton) Muench, Megan Muench (Jay and daughter Alynne); and Scott Muench. Alex is survived by his sister Clara Meier, his sister in-law Joyce Gottfried, and his brother and sister in-law Jack and Carol Body. He was predeceased by his parents Karl and Katherina Gottfried, his sisters Rosie Gottfried and Bernice Scheidt, and his brother John Gottfried.
Alex was happiest on his farm 4 miles west and 1 mile north of Luseland. This was the farm where he was born and raised, where he lived with his devoted and loving wife Jean, where they raised their 3 children and where he was lucky enough to watch his grandchildren grow up to share his passion for farming. Alex put in long hours but never considered it work; he always said if you enjoy what you are doing you never have to work a day in your life. Most important to Alex was his wife and family, he always considered himself to be a blessed man often saying his heaven was right here on earth.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, there will be a private family service. For those who would like to watch the service, the family will provide a recording which will be made available on the Kindersley Funeral Home Obituary Page following the funeral.
Those wishing to make donations in memory of Alex may do so to the Luseland Swimming Pool Memorial Fund, C/O the Luseland Credit Union.
