Floyd Wilderman

April 1, 1940 — January 29, 2023

On Monday, April 1, 1940, Floyd Elmer Roy Wilderman was born on the family farm in the    Sinnett, Saskatchewan area.  He was the first son born to Roy and Edith (Keller) Wilderman.
Floyd attended the Brindle school by Sinnett until his father’s health declined. This caused him to stop his education to help his parents on the family farm.  As a young lad, Floyd enjoyed fishing trips to Long Lake with his dad, and Sunday swims at Manitou Beach with his family.  He played  competitive hockey with the Leroy Braves and also enjoyed baseball.

Floyd claimed to be the best bulldozer operator around, however,  his father may have said   differently. He left home at the age of 15 and relocated to Regina where he worked with a      construction company driving a bulldozer, and this started a journey of many different roles in the construction industry. During this time, Floyd married Sally and from this union, Stacey, Cindy, Roy, Sylvia, Lois, and Rodney were born. His second marriage completed his family with the birth of Mitchell.

On August 14, 1979, Floyd started dating his soulmate Dianne Kozak and they were married on December 30, 1988. Floyd’s work journey included the oil field and diamond  drilling in the BC area.  Then unfortunately in his early fifties, Floyd  was diagnosed with lymphatic cancer, he was forced to retire.

With time on his hands and the love of farming and gardening, Floyd and Dianne started hobby farming. This included cattle, sheep, goats, and chickens. When time permitted, Floyd helped many farmers during harvest and haying season.  He often bragged about the size of potatoes he could grow.

During Floyd’s spare time, you could find him hanging with the guys on coffee  row, and took trips to BC to visit family, and taking in the Calgary stampede.  His favourite to watch were the chuck  wagon races and bull riding.  Most Sundays in the summer, you could find Floyd and    Dianne on Fishing Lake, limiting out on fish before noon!   They attended many rodeos and   auction sales in the area       together. Floyd was known as the “wheeler dealer”.  He is probably one of the few people around who could sell snow to a snowman and still make a profit.

Always trying to make a buck, there wasn’t a bottle or can around that Floyd wouldn’t see and pick up.  Sadly, the last bottle he picked up in April 2019 resulted in an injury that brought on a medical condition.  This unfortunate injury forced him to reside in the long-term facility Golden Acres.  He lived the remainder of his time there until his passing in the early hours of Sunday morning on January 29, 2023, when Floyd took his last breath with Dianne by his side.

Floyd was known for his great smile; many called it a million-dollar smile!  Nothing made him smile more than visits with Dianne, his children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, friends, and family.

Floyd is lovingly remembered by his wife Dianne of 33 years, children Stacey (Connie), Cindy Sieppert (Ted), Roy (Paula), Sylvia Taylor (Eddie),  Lois Senft (Greg), and Mitchell Blyth (Cindy); grandchildren Danielle Menhem (Billy), Chancellor, Jade Bessette (Dan), Christina Di Palma (Mark), Jared, Chad (Shona), Sarina, Champagne (Dil), Dezarae Senft (Stewart), Dedrik Senft (Lyla), Demery Hockley (Ryan), Darris Wilderman, Teagan Blyth (Dustin), Gregory Blyth; his great-grandchildren Malek & Zayn Menhem, Blayze, Presley & Harlow Bessette, Bella & Alessia Di Palma, Braxton Singelton, Paecious & Perswacious Wilderman, Kane & Royce Senft, Ever Hockley; siblings Maxcine (Tony) Muggley, Pearl Dreger, Rita Kruger, Dianne Campbell, Bev Raab, Kathy Klatt (Harvey),  and Kenny ; sister-in-law Donna Koch; and Sally Mayert, and many friends
Floyd was predeceased by his parents, Roy and Edith ; his son Rodney; great grandson, Diesel; brother Ralph; in-laws Sam and Albina Kozak; brothers in-law Bill Pickering, Mick Campbell; nieces Chantelle  Dreger and Debbie Kruger.
