Obituary for Herman Buhler

On Saturday, September 9, 2023 at Middlechurch PCH, Herman Buhler, aged 84, was called to his eternal home in heaven. He leaves to mourn his beloved wife Anne (nee Hildebrand), three sons: Larry & wife Roxanne (Peter, Jozie, Amanda); Richard & wife Regiene (Justin/Rachel, Chelsey/Jamaal, Hailey); Allen & wife Zerlina (Shantal/Joel, Kevin, Chase/Anna); & one daughter, Sharon & husband Rob Taylor (Sarah/Scott); two great grandbabies Madeline & Estelle; as well as one brother Jake, and two sisters Anne and Mary. He was predeceased by his parents John & Aganetta Buhler, four brothers & three sisters.
Born on October 11, 1938 in Aberdeen, SK, he was the third youngest of 11 children. At age 7 his family moved to Schoenviese, MB. By age 20 he had moved to Winnipeg and joined the local ironworker union. He received his welder certification in 1970.
At the age of 20 he also met the love of his life, Anne. They married on October 13, 1963, and would have celebrated 60 years of loving marriage this October. By 1972 they had four children and purchased their first house on McLeod, where they have lived for over 50 years.
Dad accepted Jesus as his personal Saviour in the early 90s following a serious work accident that caused him to lose sight in his right eye. He became active at Salem Community Church, as both an usher and a member of the Board of Trustees, fixing everything that needed fixing during that time, as was his way, until he no longer was able.
When Dad's dementia started taking over, it was hard to see this strong, hardworking man become riddled with confusion and for his body to fail him. Mom stayed dedicated to fulfilling her vows by caring for his needs every single day, until the very last day. The family would like to express sincere gratitude to the staff at Middlechurch where he resided for the past five months - for the care, compassion, and dignity Herman was given while in their care. A special thanks also to family and friends for your prayers, acts of kindness, and support during this difficult time.
