Schnarr, Alfred Richard

Alfred (Pat) Richard Schnarr, born May 5, 1913, passed away peacefully on Friday, May 7, 2010, at Fort Macleod Community Support Beds at the age of 97.
Pat is survived by his daughter Sandra Schnarr of Fort Macleod; his son Brian Schnarr of Vauxhall; numerous nieces and nephews and a sister-in-law Wilma Schnarr.
Pat was predeceased by his wife of 60 years, Jenny Schnarr (Barr); his parents Alexandre (Sandy) and Clara (Dixon) Schnarr; brother Clarence; and sister Katherin Schnarr.
Pat was born in Leavings (Granum) and spent the majority of his life on the family ranch in the Olson Creek district until retiring to Fort Macleod in 1972.
Pat was a great horse and cattleman and was always a farmer at heart. He was always available to lend a helping hand when called upon by neighbours and friends whether it was breaking horses, working cattle or driving tractor.
In 1924 Pat rode as a jockey in the Claresholm Derby and won the coveted cup of which he was very proud.
Pat’s memory was sharp as a tack up to the end and he always had a good sense of humour and a good story for anyone who would listen. We would like to thank the staff at Macleod Pioneer Lodge for their care and consideration shown to Pat during his stay there, as well as the staff at Community Support Beds for Pat’s care the past two months. A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, May 12, 2010, at Christ Church Anglican, 320 21st St., Fort Macleod, with Rev. Andrew Horne, officiating.
