Harry McCall “Tad” Minor of Medicine Hat passed away on Friday, September 11th, 2020 at the age of 78 years. Harry leaves to cherish his memory his loving wife, Fay; children, Thane Minor of Medicine Hat, Tammy (Guy) Shapka of Alix, AB, and Tim Minor of Sylvan Lake, AB; grandchildren, Tanner, Teagan, Kate, and Callum; brother, Joe Minor; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Tad was predeceased by his parents, Perry and Kay Minor; brothers, Tony Minor and Tim Minor; and one nephew, Aldon Minor. Tad attended school in Brooks then went to Nebraska to finish high school and play football. At age 16, Tad qualified for the Olympics in trapshooting but was unable to attend because of school. He received his auctioneer training in Iowa, married Fay in 1962 and moved to Winnipeg to start his career at the stockyards. Tad, Fay and their three children came back to Medicine Hat in 1967. He established his reputation as an honest cattle buyer and had several clients for three generations. His wit and one liners were well known. Medicine Hat Golf Course was his summer home where he had many good friends. He was an avid card player and loved the horse races. He had a chair in almost every auction market in Southern Alberta and Saskatchewan and knew most of the ranchers in this area. For many years, Tad enjoyed watching his son in-law Guy Shapka compete as a professional saddle bronc rider. Tad was especially proud of all four of his grandchildren. With his generous emotional and financial support, they were able to play many high-level sports as well as attend Nursing and Law School. Tad will be dearly missed by all those who knew and loved him. We know he is up there somewhere playing cards and entertaining everyone with his sense of humour. A private family graveside service will be held. Memorial gifts in Tad’s memory may be made to the Margery E. Yuill Cancer Centre, c/o Medicine Hat & District Health Foundation, 666 5 St SW, Medicine Hat, AB T1A 4H6 or to the Tom Baker Cancer Centre, c/o Foothills Medical Centre, 1331 29 St NW, Calgary, AB T2N 4N2.

MARY FISCHER


Heartfelt tributes spoken by Lori, Kelsie and Jody were followed by two beautiful songs; one by Devyn and Mandy and the other by the great-grandchildren. These acts of love were shared this past Monday celebrating the life of Mary Fischer. Her memory will forever be treasured by all those who knew and loved her!

Jesus knew the answer,
And we knew you loved him so,
So we gave to you life’s greatest gift,
The gift of letting go!

Her Life Lived…
Her Life Cherished…
Her Life Honoured.
