    Obituary

    Alfred will be remembered with love by his twin sister Alfreda Paschke of Tisdale, her children: Laurence (Dianne) Paschke of Tisdale, and son Trevor Paschke (Samantha Stehr) of Calgary, AB; Fay (Donald) Bromm of Tisdale, their children: Nathan (Sheryl) Bromm of Moosomin, SK and their children Rainn and Madelaina, Nicole Finch of Prince Albert, SK and her children Willis, Jayda and Danica, Justin (Danielle) Bromm of Prince Albert, SK and their son Boden; Donna (Wade) Cressman of Tisdale and their son’s Michael (Ashley Pilon) of Hudson Bay, SK and Brandon (Sidnee Stepple) of Martensville, SK; Rudolf “Rudy” Paschke (Deborah West) of Mineville, N.S and brother Adolf (Muriel) Schlacht of Orono, ON.
    Alfred Schlacht was born June 21, 1932, two hours after his twin sister Alfreda. He was born on the farm in a new house at Strzegowo, Miélau, a small town in Poland. He was the youngest child of seven siblings. At the age of seven he started school in Poland. In 1944, after 6 weeks on the road they had left Poland and landed in Súdenvalsede, Germany. Alfred started school 3 weeks later after arriving. At the age of 19 Alfred and Alfreda left Germany; July 21, 1951 they landed in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada on a ship named Georgic.
    From there they travelled by train to Tisdale. When the train stopped it was pouring rain, these two were here to stay. They would live in Canada for the rest of their lives. Runciman was the next destination. As the time and years went by Alfred eventually settled at Clair on the farm with his dad and brother. Alfred worked hard farming and had rabbits, horses, cows, goats, chickens, many dogs and cats to fill his days once he was done in the field.
    30 years ago due to circumstances, Alfred ended up returning to Tisdale to live on the farm with his sister and brother-in-law Fred. He managed to regain his health day by day. Within two years he managed to walk a half a mile to Percy and Carol Yelland’s place. A half a mile ended up going to one mile, three miles, then five miles in a day. He loved to stop in and visit, play cards and of course tell stories. If he had your attention he added more and more to the story, (then with a sheepish grin) he would say “I had to tell you something.” Or he’d say something so far-fetched, a little corner of his lip looked like he was going to smile he’d say “You look so serious!” That made you end up smiling in the long run, and calling him a BS’er which would make him laugh.
    Through activity and his sister’s cooking, Alfred ended up being able to get back on the tractor to work the fields, seed and harvest alongside his brother-in-law. There were also three babies that came along to help with Alfred getting back to health. Trevor Paschke, Michael Cressman and Brandon Cressman; they formed a special bond with Uncle Alfred, being able to work, help and learn together. When the tables turned on Alfred, the boys helped him any way they could.
    Alfred never complained about anything that came his way. He was our gentle giant. He was never scared or ashamed to say “I Love You” and he said it a lot. Alfred was so thankful for everything and anything, he believed in God, prayer and life after death. Many times he reassured us when he was struggling at deaths door he’d say “I’m not dying yet” He out lived his nine cat lives many times over. When the time came Easter Morning he asked for his sister. A “Thank you”, and a “I love You” was spoken for the last time. Every day we had Alfred with us was a blessing, and we would not have it any other way. Rest in Peace Alfred, We Love You.
    Alfred was predeceased by his parents Rudolf (Wanda nee Yabs) Schlacht; sister and brother-in-law Emmy (Awald Look) Germany; sister and brother-in-law Wanda (Heinz Hartmann) Germany; sister and brother-in-law Lotte (Paul Bittner) Ontario; brother-in-law Frederick “Fred” Paschke Tisdale; sister and brother-in-law Lydia (Bruno Dopslaff) and their two sons Gunter and Arnold.
