Arnold Fast

March 8, 1920 - October 21, 2015

Tribute

Arnold passed away October 21, 2015 at Tabor Home at the age of 95 years. 

He is survived by his loving wife Anne, two daughters Carol Unger and Emily ( John Voth); two sons Wesley and Gary (Val) as well as 6 grandchildren ; 10 great grandchildren and other family members  and friends.  Arnold was a man of grace and kindness.  If there is a lesson we learned from him it would be “a smile costs so little yet gives so much.”

An opportunity for viewing will be held on Saturday, October 31st, between 3:00 pm and 4:00 pm, at Clearbrook MB Church.  The Memorial Service will take place on Monday, November 2nd at 11:00 am at Clearbrook MB Church, 2719 Cleabrook Road, Abbotsford. 

A special thanks to the staff at Tabor Home who we all grew to love for the way they treated Dad with such care, concern, empathy and love. In lieu of flowers, Dad would have appreciated that donations be made to Tabor Home.

From: Eldon Unger
Relation: former son in law

Arnold Fast truly was a man who stood and lived by his beliefs no matter what the occasion or manner of man that crossed his path. He gave of everything he had, whether it was his time or things of monetary value, without expecting anything in return. It was just part of him that the other person always came first. He was admired by all who knew him and I’m very fortunate to have known him very well. May God continue to bless those that are the beneficiaries of his great and many good and unselfish deeds. Eldon Unger

From: Caroline Tempel
Relation: He was my pastor at Yarrow United Mennonite

I will always hold a special place in my heart for Pastor Fast!! He was not only the pastor that baptized me, he and Mrs Fast opened their home and their life to so many of us as youth and young adults and shared so authentically, their own life…good and bad with all of us! I think of him every time I see a hitchhiker and think of all the stories he shared of sharing and showing Gods love and grace….he is a big part of why I am a pastor today!! Love, hugs and prayers to Mrs. Fast and family!!❤️ From the Tempel/Thiessen family

From: Linda and Brian Cummings
Relation: was our Pastor
