Obituary of Mervin Joseph Schmalzbauer

With great sadness the family of Mervin Joseph Schmalzbauer announces his passing on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, 2022, at age 71. Born in Kindersley, raised in Hoosier, and passed in Kindersley, his legacy carries on.

Mervin is survived by his wife Ellen Schmalzbauer (Gilbertson); Children Leslie (Denis) Cummings, Colton Schmalzbauer, Benjamin Schmalzbauer, Justin Schmalzbauer; Grandchildren Ethan, Lilliana, Anastasia Cummings; sisters Vivian Basaraba, Phyllis Harty (Conrad), Selma Kurylowich, Judy Millar (Ernie Sheridan); and many nieces, nephews, and countless extended family and friends. He was predeceased by his parents Lawrence & Florence Schmalzbauer, and his brothers-in-law Harry Basaraba and Joe Kurylowich.

Mervin attended school in Hoosier, Marengo, and Wilcox Saskatchewan. Following his formal education, he took a hands-on approach to learning the ins and outs of farming, eventually taking over the family farm. Mervin and Ellen were married, and they raised their children on the farm before eventually retiring in Kindersley. He took great pride in carrying on his dad’s legacy, farming and raising bison, a legacy he leaves to his children to continue.

Through his love of motorcycles, firearms, farming, and family, Mervin lived his life creating the stories he was famous for telling. He went on several adventures throughout North America, no matter how close or far there was always a new tall tale to be told.
