Patrick Charles Dwyer of Lundbreck, AB, left this earth too suddenly for us on April 9, 2018 at the age of 70 years. He leaves behind his loving wife Linda of 48 years, his children, Lana Halvorson (Byron) of Foremost, AB, Theresa Hann (Stuwart) of Lundbreck, AB, and Willard Dwyer (Patricia) of West Kelowna, BC. As well as his grandchildren, Ashley and Candace Halvorson, Danielle and Zackery Hann, Avaya and Kinley Dwyer. Pat is survived by sister Mary Rigby (Douglas) of Dartmouth, Nova Scotia; David Dwyer (Helen) of Calgary, AB; and Susan Aris (Terry) of Ecuador. Pat was predeceased by his father George Willard Dwyer; mother, Rachel Margaret Dwyer; and niece, Robin Rigby.
Pat was born on October 24, 1947 in Pincher Creek, AB. He was raised north of Lundbreck on the family farm where he resided all of his life. He attended Livingstone School in Lundbreck and when he was able to get his drivers license he even drove the school bus while he was still attending school. While at school he met Linda and they were married on August 30, 1969.
After school Pat stayed at home to help run the family farm and was driven to do more. Pat purchased his 1st backhoe at the age of 18 and never looked back. He was passionate about work and tried many different ventures and succeeded in nearly all. Pat lived a big and bold life.
The driving force behind his work ethic was his desire to provide for his family to have every possible opportunity in life. As the grandkids arrived each and everyone of them became the apple of grandpa’s eye. He was very proud of all their accomplishments, big or small.
Pat enjoyed being active within the community and supporting anyone in need.
With his passing he has left a lot of us with a big hole…when we need something done we won’t have the option anymore to just call Pat.
