Harry, our beloved father, passed away peacefully on August 22, 2011 at the age of 80.
Harry is survived by his four children, Shirley (Mike) Papenbrock, Don Weeks, Linda Weeks and Brian Weeks; four grandchildren, Rebecca (Ivan) Pirsic, Dorothea (Quado) Service, Richard Papenbrock and Alexandra Mansbridge; and one great grandchild, Alena Service.
Harry is also survived by his brothers and sister, Fred (Helen) Weeks, Stan Weeks and Pearl Prochaska.
Harry was predeceased by his parents, Mary and Walter Weeks and brother, Arthur “Pug” Weeks.
Born and raised in Edmonton, Harry spent many hours at his father’s barber shop and pool hall. Harry’s generous and caring nature found expression in his involvement in the Community League, as a Church Elder and many hours of hard work on the farm bringing in crops and building. Harry was a good and hardworking provider, working for many years as a meat cutter for Safeway, and eventually building a house for each of his children.
Throughout his life, Harry enjoyed spending time at his family’s favorite recreation place, Alberta Beach, where he eventually built his own cabin, and spent many hours with his family.
