Monday, March 5, 2018 • Last Mountain Times 13 OBITUARY PURDUE - Barry Kenneth Oct. 9, 1950 - Feb. 24, 2018 Barry Purdue passed away on Saturday, February 24, 2018 at age 67, surrounded by his family. Barry was born October 9, 1950 in Nokomis, SK. the eldest child of Ken and Julia Purdue. Barry attended Grades 1 and 2 in High Clare School and completed the remaining school years in Raymore. He grew up on the family farm with his siblings Dennis, Lyle, Judy and Keith. He enjoyed many sports activities in his school years from baseball, football to hockey. Barry married Marcella Stuber on June 30, 1970 in Raymore. Barry worked for Woolco when they were first married and was transferred from Regina to Calgary and then Edmonton. Their first son Ryan was born in Edmonton on Feb. 2, 1975. Shortly after that time, Barry and Marcella moved back to Raymore to be closer to family and in October of 1975 they purchased a small grocery store in Raymore from Casey and Nelda Hanna. A short time after that, when Alf Hauser decided to retire, they purchased his store and sold theirs to Bob Kirkby. Their second son Scott was born on Jan 23, 1979 in Regina. Barry and Marcella sold their store to Buykles in 1979 and moved to Southey. In 1981 they purchased another grocery store in Southey where they operated it for a couple years and made Southey their home for 20 years. In the later 80’s Barry worked with his brothers Keith and Lyle doing the books and parts for Purdue’s Auto Supply. After the boys grew up and graduated, Barry and Marcella sold their house in Southey and moved to Regina. Barry had humour, charm and was very sociable. His hobby was buying and selling LOTS of cars and boats. His favorite place was his cottage at Katepwa Beach where he enjoyed entertaining family and friends. Barry’s motto was “A bad day at the beach was better than a good day in the city.” Barry was proud of his sons and was their biggest fan. He went to all Scott’s sporting events and followed Ryan’s band. Barry was also proud of his grandson Loegen’s musical accomplishments and loved spending time with his younger grandchildren. Barry won his fight against colon cancer. He faced surgeries and treatments with resilience, bravery and never complained. For the past few years Barry struggled against Alzheimer’s. Our appreciation and gratitude to the staff at Pioneer Village 4W, and the ER and MSU teams at the Pasqua Hospital for the excellent and compassionate care they gave Barry. He will be missed by his loving wife Marcella; sons, Ryan (Lindsay), Scott (Colleen); and grandchildren Loegen, Kendyl, Rylin and Declan. Also left to cherish his memory is his mother, Julia; brothers Dennis (Julie), Keith (JoAnn); sister Judy and sister-in-law Sharon (Joe Scott); brothers in law, Dennis (Adele), Max, Gerald (Sherry); sisters-in-law Pat, Shirley (John), as well as numerous other family members. He was predeceased by his father Ken in 1996, brother Lyle in 1989 and inlaws Tony and Rose Stuber. As per Barry’s request, no formal funeral will be held and a family celebration of his life will be held at a later date. Donations in Barry’s memory can be made to the Alzheimer’s Society and the Canadian Cancer Society. To leave an online message of condolence please visit
