West Gidluck
The day before West passed away on December 20, 2013, he said, "Sorry, I didn't want to ruin Christmas for you. Please don't have a funeral for me. Have a party on the farm sometime in the summer and bring everyone together for a gathering like we used to have when we were kids."
So, that's what West's family has planned!
Please join them for a Celebration of Life on THURSDAY, JULY 24: on the farm, south of Biggar. A short service is planned for 4 p.m. which will be followed by a potluck/BBQ/picnic. We'll have the grill going and a big bonfire to gather around. Bring your memories of West along with your lawn chairs and some food and beverages to toast our beloved "Kraft Dinner King" who we miss so much.
