Vernon Francis Focht

August 2, 1942 –October 16, 2015


FochtVernWe suffered a tremendous loss in the early evening of October 16, 2015 of the man I was proud to call Poppy. To others, he was a dear friend, father, brother and uncle. Vern peacefully went home to Jesus where there is no more pain and sorrow. He will be remembered for his great love for music and entertaining and his willingness to help others. He fought a fight with cancer that he could not win. Rest in peace, my dear Poppy, until we meet again.

A celebration of his life will take place on November 1 at his last known residence in Winnipeg (Ste. Anne’s apartment building). A huge thank you to the many doctors and nurses at BTHC and especially the terrific volunteers, music person, Joel, palliative care nurses and other staff members.

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain; for the former things are passed away. Revelation 21:4
