Condolences to the family of George Donald Naegeli


George Donald

November 11, 1953 - January 11, 2021

It is with profound sadness and deep regret that we announce the passing of General George.
He was born in Drumheller November 11, 1953 and passed away in Dawson City, Yukon January 11, 2021. He will be deeply missed and lovingly remembered by his wife Glenda and her children, his daughter Dana and her children Jackson and Oakley, his brother Wyatt (Cora), his sisters Connie Campbell (Sandy) and Patty Naegeli, two aunts, one uncle and many cousins, nieces, nephews and great-nieces and nephews as well as his friends Jody and Randy, Scotty, Lorne, Bruce, Black, Rich and Kate. He was pre-deceased by his parents Tuffy and Iva and his younger sister Carol.
George was raised in the valley attending DCHS where he excelled in auto mechanics but found his way to the patch and eventually went back to school and obtained his pipe-fitting ticket. He truly did love the great outdoors and everything that it entailed - fishing, hunting, exploring, riding his Harley - and he particularly liked the north country, settling on a small acreage west of Dawson City. He was brilliant at math and was a voracious reader.
General George was a chip off Tuffy’s block and loved to give orders and had a zealous need to be right but we loved him any way. His passing has created a void in our lives that may never be filled. Rest easy George - shiny side up and between the ditches. We’ll catch you later.
If friends so desire memorial tributes may be made to the charity of their choice or to the Alberta Children’s Hospital in memory of Ryder Sam Northrup.
At George’s request (and frankly because of Covid) there will be no service but a Celebration of Life may be held at a later date.

Condolences to the family of David Peter Lesoway


David Peter

March 26, 1967 - December 30, 2020

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that the family of the late David Peter Lesoway announce his passing on December 30, 2020, at the age of 53 years.
David lived most of his life in Drumheller. He was a great friend to many - a gentle giant with a huge smile. He had built many friendships throughout his years in bowling, ART classes and community activities.
David loved building model cars, the Dukes of Hazard, the Calgary Flames, fishing with his friends at Michichi, perogies, and most importantly his family and friends. He had an eclectic taste in music, anything from Britney Spears to Christmas music.
David was predeceased by his parents, Peter and Helen, and his sister Joanne.
David will be forever loved and remembered by his only brother James, sister in law Liz, 3 nieces, 1 nephew and his wide circle of friends.
In keeping with the family’s wishes, cremation will take place. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, a celebration of life in David’s honour will be held at a later date.
