Goerzen Arthur web photoARTHUR GOERZEN

Peacefully Arthur [Art] Goerzen passed away at Carman Memorial Hospital on March 18, 2018 at the age of 85 into the arms of Jesus. He will be deeply missed by his loving, caring wife Deloris [nee Schroeder] of 59 years.

He was a father to Joyce [Art] Wall, Cam [Deb] Goerzen, and Beverly [Greg] Reimer.

Grandfather to Darcy [Kaylee] Goerzen, Jaden [fiancée Katie Butler] Goerzen, Tamara Wall, Samantha Reimer, Amy [Caleb] Wiebe, Brooke [fiancé Owen Barkway] Reimer, Craig [Michelle] Wall, Troy Reimer.

Great Grandfather to Mason who always lit up his eyes.

He was predeceased by his parents Abram and Justina Goerzen, brother Rudy, sister Agatha [Abe] Plett. He is survived by his brother Ed [Helen Anne], sister- in-law Kay Goerzen, and many nieces, nephews and their families.

Art always had a deep interest in farming. He worked alongside his father at the age of 14 yrs. when his dad was unable to work anymore. Dad farmed for 67 years with his brother Rudy, then with his wife and later his son Cam and Grandson Darcy.

Dad took up the calling from others to pursue farming and be successful at it. Not saying that marrying a “rich” teacher named Deloris Schroeder didn’t come in handy. Together with their joint incomes, Mom bought dad machinery, chickens, eggs, nails and screws. Their farming partnership was a part of their 59 years of marriage. And Mom still writes the cheques. And Mom wrote the 1st cheque and she will write the last one. Dad took great pride in his farming career and was excited to pass this passion for farming on to his son Cam and Grandson Darcy.

When farming income needed to be subsidized Dad went out and got several different winter jobs.

Dad’s farming interest took him to a different level with time. He began a love for building farm toy machinery. These toys were all built to scale with intricate parts hand made by dad. Dad has one unfinished project. Before his stroke in 2017 he was working on a combine replica of a Massey Harris McCormick Deering Pull type combine. He also made a 1/3 scale model of his TD9 caterpillar

Dad had several other interests as well. Mom and dad loved going all over the province to gospel music jamborees. He loved singing in the church choir. He enjoyed teaching adult Sunday School at Springstein Church. Mom and dad were youth leaders at one time. Dad loved snowmobiling and has made many miles over the snow laden fields and trails. Art and two special friends [Abe and Albert] even had a snowmobile shop for a few years. When others travelled South to escape winter Art would get on his snowmobile and ride usually with Abe Elias and others.

Dad grew up in church all his life. At the age of 23 he decided to be baptized based on his trust in God and the gift of Salvation that he chose for himself.

If one were to use words to describe Art, some would be: a man of integrity, a gentle spirit, kind, caring, generous with time and money and a very strong faith. Dad loved his farming community. Art cared and provided lovingly for his wife and family.

Art’s health was very good till one year ago when he suffered a stroke but rallied back to near normal. Then two weeks before his passing he developed a “Soft Tissue Infection” and operation was not an option. He was blessed with no pain and passed away peacefully.

He will be sadly missed. My late husband always enjoyed his visits with Art. My daughter, Marlene, spent many enjoyable summer holidays with his family.
My condolences to the whole family. Remember the good times as he is now “ safe in the arms of Jesus “❤️❤️
