July 24, 1929 – May 5, 2012
Bert Rea passed away peacefully on Saturday, May 5, 2012 at the age of 82 years.

Bert dealt with many health challenges over the years, but was a fighter until the very end. What brought him much happiness over the years were things like, farm auctions, Saskatchewan road trips, camping, fishing, listening to Wilf Carter music and his favourite Tradeo program on the radio.
