Passing of UA Member Ed Usselman

April 9, 2018
USSELMAN, Ed Ed Usselman passed away peacefully on April 5, 2018 at the age of 81 with his family by his side at St. Paul's Hospital. Dad was born January 4, 1937 to Leo and Verla Usselman. Dad grew up on the family farm in rural Saskatchewan, the eldest of seven boys. Left to mourn Dad's passing are his four children, Rob (Lynette), Brent (Sharon), Barry (Coreen) and Brenda (Paul); the mother of his children, Jeannine; eight grandchildren, Janelle, Rylan, Vanessa, Kelsey, Levi, Cody, Lexi and Vance; two great-grandchildren, Olivia and Elijah and five brothers, Ray (Iris), Ron (Dorothy), Don, Clarence (Sheron) and Wayne; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Dad was predeceased by his parents, brother, Arnold, sister-in-law Denyse and nephew Darryl. Throughout Dad's life he worked hard as a plumber, pipe fitter and farmer. Dad was heard laughing the hardest and the most when he was teasing one of his many grandchildren, whom he was so proud of. In Dad's later years he looked forward to his weekly runs to the casino - Dad never said no to a trip to the Dunes. We want to extend our heartfelt thanks to the staff at St. Paul's Hospital for their care and compassion to Dad in his last few weeks. Memorial service will be held at St. Patrick's Parish, 3339 Centennial Dr., Saskatoon, Sk on Tuesday, April 10, 2018 at 10:30 a.m. Lunch to follow in the hall. Interment at Woodlawn Cemetery. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Canadian Bladder Cancer Society.
