John Francis Bierd of Whitewood, SK, beloved father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. passed away peacefully on Monday, April 19, 2021, at the age of 92 years.

The second son of Ernest and Jessie (Kay) Bierd, John was born on September 28, 1928, in Whitewood. He grew up on the family farm in the Armentieres district. On November 25, 1952, John married Sarah McPhee.

John took over the family farm in 1953 from his father and was still working on the farm a couple of years ago as he helped ready the yard for his 90th birthday celebration. He was so proud when the family farm reached “Century Farm” status last year.

John was a kind man who worked hard and enjoyed life. His talents were many, from fixing any piece of equipment on the farm to building his home in town. He served on the Whitewood Co-op and Whitewood Credit Union boards for years. He was also a member of the Whitewood Knights of Columbus. John was a devoted family man; he loved to visit with his many nieces and nephews and appreciated their letters, visits and calls. In his retirement, he spent winters in Mesa, Arizona. He whittled treasures for all those dear to him, and he enjoyed spending time in his garden and beautiful yard.

John’s passing leaves a hole in the hearts of many because he was a special man. Left to remember and celebrate Dad’s life are: his children, Gordon, Murray (Sharon) and Ann (Dave); his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, Mitchell, Lauren, Alayna (Dave) and Amelia Baran, Kerri (Tyson), Sarah, Brodie and Jackson Young and Kandace (Jeff) Wagner; as well as his sisters, Margaret, Muriel and Mabel; and numerous special nieces and nephews. John was predeceased by his wife, Sarah, brother Bill, and companion of 17 years, Paulene Wegner.

The family would like to thank Dr. Roets, the nurses at the Moosomin hospital, and Ramona Carson for their excellent care and compassion. If friends so desire, contributions may be made to a charity of choice.

A private family graveside service will be held later this summer.

Our sympathy goes out to you and your families. We visited with your dad when we down in Arizona a few years ago. Yes, there he was whittling away on one of his future treasures. We also had the pleasure to meet Paulene.

Your mom will be so happy to see him again. Much love, Gerald & Kay Arsenault and the Curries of Red Jacket.
