WURST, Ignace “Ig”

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Ignace, from an aggressive cancer, on October 23, 2015 in Chilliwack, BC. He was born June 22, 1935 in Spiritwood, Sask, the youngest child of 8 children born to Ignace and Anne Wurst of Hungary. The family moved to Canada in 1923, settling in Spiritwood and later moving to Aldergrove in 1943.

He met Donna and they married in 1965 and began farming in the Cloverdale/Langley area. Ig also owned and operated a trucking company which encompassed buying and selling livestock and hauling to the local auctions. Ig loved all aspects of farming, having both a dairy and a hog farm. He loved to see animals and plants flourish and especially loved the morning, watching God’s creations awaken.

Ig and Donna recently celebrated their milestone, 50 year anniversary. Together they raised two sons, Steven (Sandra) and Carl (Tracey). Ig was also a proud grandfather to, Kyle (Lisa), Jessica, Curt, Cara, Tanner and Alisa. He will be lovingly remembered also by his sister, Mary; his brother, Steve; sister in law, Diane and brothers in law, Bill and Don as well as many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents, his brothers, Ignace and Joseph; his sisters, Annie, Kathleen and Betty; sister in law, Sylvia and brothers in law, Larry and Gordon.
