July 2, 1939 - February 5, 2021

It is with deep sadness the family announces the passing of Dad, loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather.
Dad leaves to mourn his wife Elsie, daughters, Karen (Allan) Vince and Shelley (Dale) Braun; grandchildren, Tyler (Karleigh), Nicole (Adam), Jason (Brittany), Riley, and great-grandchildren, Mason, Anders, Julianne and Charlotte. He is also survived by siblings, Art (Lee), Dave (Hilda), Erna (Leonard), and many nieces and nephews and their families.
He was predeceased by his parents, two sisters, two brothers and several brothers-in-law and sister-in-law.
Dad was born in Steinbach, MB and raised on the family farm in Grunthal, MB. Abe and Elsie married in July 1963 and moved to Winnipeg where Dad started his first job with National Drugs. He then began his career in aviation, starting with Transair and moving on to Air Canada where he retired in 2003. He loved working with his colleagues who became friends and spoke fondly of his time he spent with them. He was a dedicated Air Canada employee, he took pride in his work and made lifelong friends.
The family would like to thank Dr. Duerksen for his continuing care and regular phone calls, also his respite and palliative caregivers. We'd also like to thank the staff at St. Boniface Palliative Care Unit for their excellent support during his final days.
Dad was a kind, gentle, caring man dedicated to his faith and his family. He will be greatly missed but forever in our hearts.

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free,
I'm following the path God laid for me.
