It is with saddened hearts that the family of Wilfred Brule announces his passing on Thursday, May 20, 2021, at the age of 65 years.
Wilfred will be forever missed and cherished by his loving wife, Brenda Brule; children Tasha (Edward) Collins and Clayton Brule (Meagan Maierhoffer) and beloved grandpuppies Oliver, Dysen, Urby and Roo. Wilf is also survived by his siblings, Tony (Darla), Lorne Doud, Monica (Don), Helen (Terry), Maurice (Wendy), Bernard (Kim) and Dennis (Hilda); in-laws Lorne (Diane), Dave, Les (Shelley) and all their extended families, as well as many close friends and cousins.
Wilf was predeceased by his parents, Urbain and Alma Brule; father- and mother-in-law Thomas and Myrtle Duke; baby sister Gabriel and baby brother Dennis; sisters Denise Brule and Elizabeth Doud; brother Lionel Brule; sisters-in-law Reta Brule, Gail Duke, Elsie Duke and Beverly Mitchell; brothers-in-law Doug Duke, Carl Duke and Don Mitchell; nephews Dennis Mitchell and Barry McDougal; daughter-in-law Jenna Hunt and baby Brule; and grand-puppy Copper.
Wilf was born in Whitewood and raised on his family's farm, attended school in Whitewood and grew up playing all sports. Wilf was always a hard worker and gained lots of experience from his time on the farm, working at the mine, the Gulf Service Station, Whitewood Auction Barn and the Esso in Regina. He then attended SIAST to get his auto mechanics ticket with which he built a successful career as a mechanic for over 42 years.
Wilf married his one true love, Brenda, in 1977, and together they raised their two children, Tasha and Clayton, who were his main source of pride and true joy. He was a family man through and through; Brenda, Tasha, and Clayton were the centre of his world. He accepted their partners, Eddie, Jenna and Meagan, with open arms and a loving heart. He always made time and took interest in what his family and friends were up to, including his nieces and nephews and all the babies.
Wilf played fastball and slow pitch and curled for many years. Through his interest in sports, he inspired his kids to love sports as well. Over the years, Wilf gained a love of golf and truly enjoyed his vacation with Brenda to Phoenix. He had always been an avid hunter and fisherman, through which he was able to spend time with his family. Whether he was in the Pipestone, down by Cornach, at the lake, up at Tobin or all the way in Ontario, these are the times he appreciated so much.
In 2008, Wilf and Brenda purchased their cabin with Les and Shelley at Gremeau Park, now Black Pearl; this was their place, a home away from home. Since then, he and Brenda spent their weekends and holidays with family and friends, including their lake family, gathering around the fire. Wilf absolutely loved turning on his music, pouring himself a drink and spending time around the fire, telling jokes and reminiscing about his life and experiences. He was looking forward to spending his retirement years, especially this summer, down at the lake in his new home away from home. Wilf loved being around others and was a very social guy who could fit in with any crowd. He enjoyed all types of card games, horse racing and crokinole and was very tough to beat when it came to anything trivia.
Wilf was a very special man who would do anything for anyone. He was loved by all and will be forever missed but never forgotten.
