Michael Dean Waldegger

Michael Dean Waldegger June 19, 1968 - January 3, 2018. With great sadness we announce the peaceful passing of Michael Waldegger on January 3, 2018 at Cypress Regional Hospital in Swift Current. Michael will be missed deeply by his father, Kasper Waldegger; siblings, Sharon Gulka and her children Sara (Jesse) Korella and Chris Gulka; Laureen Bolding and her children Ryan (Rachel) Bolding and Jenny (Jeff) Dyck; Kenton Waldegger; Michele (Gary) Hoffert and their children Lucas and Alyssa Hoffert. As well his great nieces and nephews: Jace, Kale, Aislyn and Cruz Korella; August Bolding; Ruby and Townes Dyck. Waiting with the Lord to welcome him home will be his mother, Marion Waldegger, brother, Bryant Waldegger, and nephew, Jeffrey Bolding. Resurrection Mass was held January 11, 2018 at Christ the Redeemer Roman Catholic Church with Rev. Msgr. Reymundo Asis. Many thanks to our pianist-Marlene Dolter and members of the church choir.  Readers were Michael's sister, Sharon; niece, Alyssa; brother-in-law, Gary. Michael's nieces and nephews were gift bearers. His brother Kenton was urn bearer and his sister Michele presented the eulogy. Michael will be laid to rest at Mount Pleasant Burial Park, Swift Current. Michael was born and raised in Swift Current, the youngest in a family of six children. Following high school, Michael studied both carpentry and electrical and was talented in both trades. His most rewarding job was with Swift Current Housing Authority. He took great pride in his work and found his connection to the seniors particularly fulfilling. He had a strong work ethic and was well regarded by his coworkers. Michael enjoyed many activities with his family and friends. He was always up for games; late night scrabble, headbands or cards was always fun. He loved time at the lake regardless of the season: boating, water skiing, dirt biking, campfires, icefishing, and snowmobiling.  He was known for creating the most challenging obstacle course croquet games. He loved to cook for family gatherings and was often found at the barbecue. He was fun loving and could be quite adventurous; he particularly enjoyed spending time with his nieces and nephews and they did get into some mischief on occasion. He found pleasure in gardening and he and dad had the most beautiful geraniums and bubble gum petunias. Family has always been important to Michael. Sadly, in the last several years, Michael's multiple health difficulties kept him from doing many of the things he loved and from remaining connected to many who were important to him. He remained grateful to all who were a part of his life. The family wishes to sincerely thank all of Michael's caregivers for their kind and compassionate care. Special thanks to Dr. Bakare, Home Care, and the staff of Med/Surg West Unit 2. In Michael's memory, donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society. Warren's Funeral Home in care of arrangements.
