It is with heartfelt sadness that we announce the passing of John Giesbrechet at the age of 95 years, on January 24th, 2022.

John was the third of 11 children born to Anna and David Giesbrecht on September 18, 1926.

He did well in school, and we used to hear stories about how he skipped two grades because he found them too easy. Also, he loved vehicles and became the family driver at an early age. He always had an interest in tractors and enjoyed watching videos about them.

He was a very loving husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, and great-great grandfather. He was happiest wish all of his family around him. He was a great storyteller and was always entertaining us with his stories of his younger years.

John also loved playing the guitar and still played when he was already in his nineties.

John was predeceased by his parents, 3 brothers (Abe, Jake & Dave), and 6 sisters (Helen, Annie, Mary, Tena, Louise & Agatha). He is survived by his brother Bill Giesbrecht.

He leaves behind Sarah, his loving wife of 70 years and his 4 daughters: June (Jake Dyck), Loretta (Barry Howard), Lynn (Rodger Fehr), & Shirley (Jim Friesen). Also, 12 grandchildren, 14 great grandchildren & 1 great-great grandchildren.

He had so much love for all of them and will be greatly missed!

A private family service will be held. Arrangements entrusted to Martens Warman Funeral Home (306) 934-4888.
