Wilf worked for several companies in the Oil and Gas industry in Calgary, until his retirement in 1990 from Imperial Oil. “Papa” as he was affectionately known, loved jazz; long walks in Fish Creek Park; and most of all his children, Tara, Trevor, Joelle, and especially his grandson Sean, who adored his Papa and will miss their special times together.

He was predeceased by his parents and three siblings. Wilf is survived by Margo Mitzel; numerous family members; and special friends.

    I happened to be thinking about Wilf and had not been in Calgary in years, neeless to say I regret not communicating with all of you. I’d make one trip on business to Edmonton, and did think about trying to contact you. Please let us know how family is doing Saskatoon. Condolences to all of the family.
