Abraham (Abe) Zacharias

1932 - 2018

Abe married Mary Giesbrecht in 1955 and they were blessed with 3 children. Eunice, Eileen (married to Dan Blatz) and Eleanor (married to Howard Friesen). They were blessed with nine grandchildren and eight great grandchildren.

He is survived by 2 brothers, a brother-in-law and a sister-in-law and their families.

Abe was a business man and he was employed with Winkler Co-op for the majority of his career. He enjoyed delivering motor homes for Triple E in his retirement.

We remember him as a loving husband, God honoring father, father-in-law, grandpa, great grandfather, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, cousin and friend.

We as a family would like to thank our extended family and supportive friends.

We would also like to thank Dr. Hesom and the Boundary Trails medical staff for their kind, caring and gentle support.

Condolences to you, Eunice, Eileen and Eleanor on the the passing of your Dad. He would greet me and shake hands sometimes at church. Seeing him always reminded me of the time we were neighbors. Good memories.

We wanted to share our condolences with Abraham's family. It is never easy to have to say goodbye to a loved one. The pain of loss can be unbearable. Our Creator promises us that one day this pain will be just a memory. That beautiful promise can be found at Revelation 21:3,4. Our pain and suffering will be a thing of the past, and we can cry tears of joy as we welcome back the ones that we love so much. We hope you find comfort in those promises.
