Jake A. Wieler
With great sadness we announce the sudden passing of our husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, son and friend Jake A. Wieler. Otherwise known as “The Pool Table Man”. Left to mourn is his beloved wife Debbie (of 47 years), Daughter Cynthia (James), Son Vance (Michelle), Daughter Connie (Jordon) and grandchildren Emily, Jesse, Benjamin, Damian, Noah and Angelica. Jake also leaves behind his brother Ed (Connie), Sisters Carol, Kathy (Eldon), Nancy (Randy) and numerous nephews, nieces, cousins and friends. Jake is predeceased by his beloved son Andy, brother Kenneth, father Cornelius, mother Agnes and sister Martha.
Jake was born and lived in the Winkler area before his family moved to Stephenfield. There he grew his passion for nature, gardening and fishing. At a young age Jake was taught the value of hard work and the foundation of his faith. Jake met Debbie in Winnipeg and went on to have four children. Jake had a passion for travelling and adventure that he enjoyed with Debbie and his children. In Jake’s younger days he sold farm machinery and farmed. His true calling came as a hobby that turned into his life long career of pool tables. This took him and Debbie all over North America.
Family would like to thank the health care teams at Boundary Trails, HSC and the amazing staff at Carman Memorial Hospital that gave him comfort and care for his final days.
Donations to be made to the Palliative Care department at the Carman Memorial Hospital.
Funeral service will be held on Saturday, January 20, 2024 at 2:00 p.m. at the Carman United Church. Private interment will take place in Greenwood Cemetery, Carman.
