Wendell Reimer

October 24, 1951 - December 18, 2022

He was raised on a farm near Barnsley alongside his brothers: Terry and Gord, and sister Tracy.

Wendell attended the former Tracy School until grade four, and then Elm Creek School up to grade ten.

After this, he dropped out to pursue his life-long passion of farming and raising cattle.

When he was about 25 years old, Wendell left home and moved to a farm at Ridgeville, where he continued to grow his herd of registered horned Hereford cattle – a lifelong endeavour.

He was also a skilled horseman, and during this period of his life entered team roping events across southern Manitoba. He would continue to raise and train horses throughout his entire life.

Wendell moved back home briefly before settling down on a farmyard in between St. Claude and Haywod, which was little more than a field of grass when he arrived in the mid '80s.

He had officially established Bar None Cattle in 1973, but also raised horses, dogs, and pigs at different times along the way.

Wendell met Loriane Dheilly in 1992, and the two got married the following year. The couple had two children together: Will (Billy) was born in 1994, and Sierra arrived in 1996.

Wendell’s children were his pride and joy, and of all his endeavours, fatherhood was most important to him.

Through the cattle business, and a network of coffee shops, Wendell made friends far and wide. His work and life were inseparable, and he continued to raise cattle until illness forced him into an ‘early’ retirement at age 70.

Wendell passed away at Carman Hospital with family by his side on December 18, 2022, following a lengthy battle with cancer.

He was predeceased by his parents Will and Hilda, and leaves to mourn his children, siblings, and a long list of nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles, and friends.

Funeral service was held on December 21, 2022 at the Carman Pentecostal Church. Burial took place in the Elm Creek Cemetery.
