MICKEY ASPLUND
1962 - 2014


McDonald Reed Asplund, passed away in Taber on Wednesday, October 1, 2014 at the age of 52 years.
Relatives and friends were invited to meet with the family at Southland Funeral Chapel, 5006 - 48 Avenue, Taber on Monday, October 6, 2014 between 7:00 P.M. and 8:00 P.M.
The Funeral Service was held at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 5314 - 54 Street, Taber on Tuesday, October 7, 2014 at 11:00 A.M. with Bishop Scott Olsen conducting. Burial followed at the Taber Memorial Garden.
Mickey is survived by his brothers Paul, Garnet and Matthew all of Edmonton as well as many of his beloved relatives both near and far.
He was predeceased by his parents Beverly (nee Hunter) and Kenley Asplund and by his sister Rhonda.
Mickey was the second child and first son born to Kenley and Beverly Asplund. He spent over thirty years in the agricultural retail business, starting as a young man at Agri Fertilizer in Taber and concluding with Crop Production Services in Vauxhall. As a mature student, he recognized the need for higher education and returned to Lethbridge College and achieved an agricultural diploma. Mickey had a work ethic that earned him the respect of his peers and his customers. He witnessed many changes in the agricultural field and had the opportunity to work with people who were not only his customers and co-workers but who became over time, his closest and dearest friends.
Mickey was a great storyteller. He had the ability to take life’s experiences and wind them into a story that would leave you gasping for air. He had the way of saying something that left little to interpretation. His forthright nature, his honesty and his wisdom were the reason he was so often surrounded by his many friends. Whether it was talking about his beloved Habs, hockey generally, agriculture or current events, he had the ability to talk to anyone and in doing so shared insights that reflected his sharp and clever mind.
Mickey had a great love for his family both living and those that have passed away. He travelled through Alberta and the United States seeking out those who had come before him.
Mickey was active in many organizations which sought to bring hope and the light of God to the lives of others. His focus on the needs of others and on serving those around him was a lifelong trait. There were many during his life who leaned on Mickey for advice and support in their times of need which he willingly provided. He epitomized the characteristics described within Luke 6:29-30; if you had asked him for his cloak he would have provided you his coat as well.
Mickey will be missed by all who knew him, for his companionship, his advice, his help in times of need and for his always willing hands. We have truly lost a gentle, kind and loving man.

TED ALLEN
1912 - 2014


It is with great sadness that we mark the passing of Theodore Mynott Allen Jr. on January 23, 2014. He spent a remarkable 101 years on this earth. He was predeceased by his loving wife Esther and their son Richard.
A private family service was held with burial at the Taber Memorial Garden.
Ted will be fondly remembered by his son Theodore III (Holly) Allen of Calgary and daughter Linda (Arthur) Olivier of Taber as well as seven grandchildren, nine great grandchildren and numerous relatives and friends.
Ted began life in Colfax, Washington, the fourth of five children born to Theodore and Linnie Allen. The family, including sisters Irene Schonert, Gladys “Polly” Voorhees, Argyle Voorhees and brother Bill (Anne) moved to the Taber area in 1918 to farm on the north bank of Chin Coulee. As a young man, Ted wrangled horses from Skiff to Warner to Lomond. In those days there were no fences. Farmers turned their horses loose during the winter and trailed them back in the spring.
Ted and Esther met at a country dance held at the Wadena School south of Taber. She had just been hired as a teacher at Cromwell School south of Taber, and they spent the next sixty six years together. During his lifetime, he was a farmer, a horseman, a hockey coach and a lifetime member of the Lions Club. Besides farming, Ted also raised and sold kids’ ponies. He took great joy in providing a fledgling horse enthusiast with a reliable equine companion. When there got to be over one hundred horses out on the coulee, cutting down seemed to be a good idea.
Many of Ted’s hockey players will remember him as a coach who didn’t skate. He coached from the bench following drills published in the Saturday supplement of the Lethbridge Herald. One of his teams reached Provincial Finals. Not bad for small town Alberta.
Ted, his brother Bill and a few of their friends were instrumental in founding the Taber Lions Club. He was especially proud of his association with that organization and their affiliation with the CNIB. In later years his contribution of “a joke a meeting” became mandatory. He has been awarded the coveted Melvin Jones award for his contributions and last year was recognized for being the oldest living member of the Lions Club in the world.
Thoroughbred horses and horse racing became a passion later on in his life. He owned and raced horses with a number of partners over the years and supported the industry until his death.
Dad’s philosophy of life was that you should leave the planet a better place for your having been on it. You done good, Dad.
If friends so desire, memorial tributes in Ted’s name may be made directly to charitable cause of one’s personal choosing.

The cure was not to be.
He wrapped you in his loving arms
And whispered “Come with me.”
You suffered much in silence
Your spirit did not bend
You faced your pain with courage
Until the very end.
You tried so hard to stay with us
Your fight was all in vain
God took you in his loving arms
And freed you from your pain.
You didn’t deserve what you went through,
And so he gave you rest,
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.”
