July 7, 1930 - December 30, 2013
Helmute Dueck of High River passed away at his home on December 30, 2013 at the age of 83 years. Helmute is survived by his loving wife Elfrieda; children Ken (Irma) Fast Dueck, Ric (Laurel) Dueck, Carole (Russell) Neufeldt; grandchildren Zachary, Krista, Daniel, Alyssa, Erin, Bryant and Eric; siblings Erwin (Katie) Dueck, Eileen (Werner) Peters and Dennis (Lenore) Dueck. He was born in Rosthern, SK and spent a significant amount of time as a young boy on the farm with his cousins in Spiritwood, SK. On July 14th, 1956 Helmute married Elfrieda "Ella" Peters from Hanley. For many years, Helmute and Ella lived, raised their children and worked in Saskatoon. Helmute traveled to several small Saskatchewan towns as Regional Sales Manager for International Harvester and Abex. Helmute was a pilot, farmer and entrepreneur. In 2000 he embarked on a new journey with Ella, moving to High River. Here he became actively involved with the condo association, High River Handi-Bus and volunteered many enjoyable hours at the Heritage Museum. He loved the land and felt at home engaging people in farming conversations. He had a fascination for flight and all things mechanical. We will miss his curiosity, his readiness to help, generosity and pride in his children and grandchildren.
