KRAHN – Herbert

September 5, 1929 – May 29, 2010

It is with great sadness that the family of Herbert Krahn announces his passing on Saturday, May 29, 2010 at the age of 80 years.

Herb was born on September 5, 1929 in Aberdeen, Saskatchewan and married Anne on October 29, 1950. He was general manager for Simpson’s Contract Division for sixteen years and moved the family to Calgary in 1972. Herb was highly respected in the business community in both Saskatoon and Calgary. Above all else, the most important aspect of his life was the overwhelming love and devotion he had for his family.

Herb is survived by his loving wife Anne of sixty years; three children, Glen (Leslie), Miles (Susan), Beverley (Carl); eight grandchildren, Chad (Kara-Lee), Ryan (Jennifer), Scott, Mark (Andra), Brent (Colleen), Jessica (Justin), Brittany, Maddison; and three great-grandchildren, Carson, Skylan and Owen; brother John Krahn (Evelyn); sister Breata Klassen (Hank); and sister-in-law Hildegard. He was predeceased by his brothers, George, and Henry, and sister-in-law Luella.

A private family service will be held. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Kids Cancer Care Foundation of Alberta, Suite 302, 609 – 14th Street N.W., Calgary, AB T2N 2A1, www.kidscancercare.ab.ca. The family would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff at Unit 32 of the Foothills Hospital, the loving and caring staff at Sarcee Hospice, Bev Green and the Home Care Team, and Dr. Peter Thornton, who went far beyond the call of duty in his care of Herb over the years. Finally, we would like to thank all of Herbs extended family and friends for their support in his time of need.

In living memory of Herbert Krahn, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Fish Creek Chapel, 14441 BANNISTER ROAD S.E. Telephone: (403) 256-9575.
