Henry Edwin Froese April 02, 1946 - July 22, 2004 Funeral arrangements by Chapel Lawn Funeral Home With deep sadness we announce the peaceful passing of Henry with family members by his side at St. Boniface Hospital on July 22, 2004. On Tuesday April 2, 1946, Henry Edwin Froese became the second of seven sons born to David and Annie (nee Esau) Froese at Concordia Hospital. The family lived on a farm near Sperling, Manitoba where Dad learned the strong work ethic that followed him to the end of his time on Earth. In 1966, he started working as a Carpenter’s Apprentice, he then became a Job Estimator, and later, a Project Manager. His most recent employer was Bird Construction where he had many dear friendships. He was always willing, and eager to make himself available to spend time with his friends and family by going out or hosting gatherings. He was a humble man, full of strong and unwavering faith; always holding fast to his convictions and beliefs. He enjoyed reading books to help him grow as a person and to help enhance his spiritual life. Dad had been a baptized member of Portage Avenue Mennonite Brethren Church since July 13, 1969 where he had always been actively involved, from working with youth programs, to serving on many different committees. You would be hard-pressed to find a room in the church that Dad did not have his hand in at some point. He always believed strongly in the power of servanthood and doing his part wherever possible. Over the years he had always kept himself busy with one thing or another. He loved building things and working with his hands. Even a couple of months before his passing, he said (with a smile), “it would be nice to start a new project … without having to worry about a budget.” A number of years ago, he took up bird carving and won recognition for one of his pieces at a competition. He enjoyed being outdoors, golfing, working on the yard, going to watch the Blue Bombers, and travelling. Dad made many trips to the U.S., Saskatchewan, Toronto, Cuba, and fishing at Eagle Nest Resorts. In April 2004, Dad was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. Although he had cause to focus on his own situation, he always prayed for his family and gave thanks to God for the Bible to read and study. He rested on the promises God gave us all to receive, the promises of eternal salvation and the fact that He will never allow us (his children) to endure more than we can handle. One of Dad’s favorite passages was Psalm 23. Henry was taken home to be with his Lord and Saviour at the age of 58, and will be dearly remembered by his sons Doug and Jackie, Jeff and Marcy, and their mother Judith; grandchildren Aaron, Rylie, and David; his parents David and Annie; six brothers and their families. The funeral service will be held at Portage Avenue M.B. Church, 1420 Portage Ave. on Monday, July 26, 2004 at 10:30 a.m. with John Unger and Claude Pratt ministering. Viewing will be Sunday July 25, 2004, 7:00 - 8:00 p.m. at Chapel Lawn Funeral Chapel, 4000 Portage Ave. Interment will follow the service at the Mennonite Memorial Gardens. Donations may be made to Cancer Care MB or Living Free Ministries. Many thanks to Dr. R. Wong and the staff on the 5th floor at St. Boniface Hospital, PAMB Church, and the many friends and family that prayed and supported him during his illness.
