Paul Waldemar Friesen

April 19, 1932 - April 10, 2018


Paul Waldemar Friesen passed away peacefully surrounded by family at Chilliwack General Hospital on Tuesday, April 10, 2018 at the age of 85. Paul is survived by his loving wife Ruth of almost 55 years, his children Julia (Wes) Hiebert, Reg (Kim) Friesen and Patricia (Alan) Martens; grandchildren Randal, Kaileen, Jessica, Jordan, Matthew, Aaron, Emily, Brett and Taylor.

Paul was born in Herbert, Saskatchewan and enjoyed farm life with his brothers and sisters.  On April 15, 1963 Paul married the love of his life Ruth Harder and together they raised their three children on the family farm.  In 1974 they moved to the Fraser Valley and settled in Chilliwack.  Paul worked in the rental industry where he could use his skills and experience from the farm.  Paul retired in 1996 and enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren, camping, and traveling. He loved to watch any sport, golf, carpet bowl, play horseshoes, board games (especially Scrabble) and tinker in the shop.  He always enjoyed serving in his local church as a way of expressing his faith in Christ.

Donations in Paul’s memory can be made be made to Mennonite Central Committee (#201-33933 Gladys Ave. Abbotsford, BC V2S 2E8) or Ruth & Naomi’s Mission (46130 Margaret Ave, Chilliwack, BC V2P 2G5.)
