Henry George Bauck, aged 89 years of Moose Jaw, SK passed away suddenly on the morning of Wednesday, December 26th, 2018. Henry was born on January 24th, 1929 on his Grandpa and Grandma Bauck’s farm north of Chaplin. He was predeceased by his wife, Aileen (Adrian) Bauck; grandson, Michael Gerbrandt; parents, Rueben and Ada Bauck; and brother-in-law, Ivan Marzolf. Henry will be dearly missed by his wife, Sylvia (Ward) Bauck and her children: Wanda, Heather, Edith, Arthur, and Garth, and their families; as well as his family: son, Rod (Debbie) Bauck; grandson, Rod (Jenn) Bauck and their boys Keaton and Beckett; grandson, Larson Bauck and his boys Hudson and Brydon; daughter, Terrill (Clarence) Gerbrandt; granddaughter-in-law, Julie Gerbrandt and their children Janaya, Kianna, and Joel; grandson, Dean (Julie) Gerbrandt and their children Robyn (Brandon) and their baby Brody, Sarah (Kurt), Tilynn, and Brendan; granddaughter, Lacey (Matt) Owens and their children Coulson, Cooper, and Cadence; son, Dwight (Joan) Bauck; grandson, Jeff (Selina) Bauck and their children Casey, Madison, and Carter; son, Mitch (Brenda) Bauck; sister, Helen Marzolf; as well as many cousins and friends. Henry grew up on the farm, attended the Bothwell school, and graduated High School at Central Collegiate in Moose Jaw, SK. He went on to farm and spent his winters in Vancouver, where he worked on the tugboats. On November 14th, 1952 he took Aileen Adrian as his bride and they made their home, farming north of Val Jean, SK. Henry spent his lifetime doing what he loved so much – farming with his family, in addition to working as a Hail Adjuster with SK Municipal Hail Insurance and serving many years as a Councillor and the Reeve of the RM of Chaplin. Henry suffered the loss of his wife Aileen in 2003 and was given a second chance at love when he married Sylvia Ward on March 28th, 2009. They later made their home at the Caleb Manner in Moose Jaw, where they were welcomed by many friends. Henry was a very social person and dearly loved by so many, whether it was through his love of travelling, being a shuffleboard champion, golfing, playing pool, so many intense games of cribbage, and of course – playing the best pranks. His family will always remember the many fishing trips they were fortunate enough to take with him. Henry will be missed for so many reasons but more than anything, his sense of humour and his infectious chuckle. A Memorial Service will be held on Monday, December 31st, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. in Moose Jaw Funeral Home with Pastor Marvin Seaborg officiating. As an expression of sympathy, donations in Henry’s name may be made to the Chaplin Lutheran Church or to a charity of one’s choice. Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane. Calvin Gammel, Funeral Director 306-693-4550.
