Alexander Walter Medwid

Passed on July 18, 2021

May 17, 1937 – July 18, 2021      It is with sad hearts we announce the peaceful passing of Alex, also called Alec by many, with his family by his side at the Arborg Hospital.

Alex was born to Nick and Jessie on the family farm in Ledwyn, MB. As Alex grew older he enjoyed learning the ins and outs of farming alongside his dad. Alex truly liked “working the soil”.

In time Alex became a qualified electrician. He worked for Manitoba Hydro for awhile. Afterwards he formed his own business, A. W. Medwid Electric. He was well known throughout the Interlake areas for his excellent work.

On May 21, 1966 he married Jean Beauchamp from Toronto, ON. They lived in Winnipeg for some time then moved to Arborg. After living in town they bought a farm north of Arborg. Together they managed the farm and electrical business.

Alex was always willing to lend a helping hand to family and friends. Alex was a kind and generous husband and a loving father and Gido.

Alex loved “hunting for a good deal” at auction sales or suppliers in Winnipeg.

Alex is survived by his wife of 55 years Jean, children Kimberly (Ron), Trevor (Raeleen), and Darrell. Grandchildren Maeson (Ken), Izaak, Great grandson Connor, Logan (Austin) Johl. Also, his siblings, Tena (Gordon), Paul (Jeannette), Steve (Lorraine), David (Brenda), Johnny (Shirley), and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Alex believed in Jehovah God’s promises in John 5:28,29 and Revelation 21:3,4.

Special thanks to ALL staff, past and present, at the Health Sciences Hospital, Riverview Rehab Centre, Gimli and Arborg Hospitals, Arborg Assisted Living Complex, Arborg Personal Care Home.

A private family service will be held.
