Garth Wedell Anholt

October 29, 2021
Garth Wedell Anholt passed away on October 29, 2021 at the age of 63. He was a beloved father, grandfather, brother, uncle, cousin, friend, and a child of God. He was also a son, grandson, husband, RCMP member, visitor to many, a lover of family, and a storyteller. He was baptized and confirmed at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Naicam, SK, and a member of Grace Lutheran in Red Deer. Growing up in Naicam, Garth played hockey and ball. He attended LCBI in Outlook, SK for grades 11 and 12, singing in the LCBI Concert Choir. He graduated from high school in 1976 and from RCMP Depot training in 1981. He served his entire RCMP career in Alberta: Mannville, Grand Cache, Gleichen, Red Deer, Hinton, and Swan Hills. In 1986, Garth married Theresa Burke. Three children came into this family: Joel Michael, Layne Wedell, and Taylor Brenna. Tragically, Theresa died in 2014. Garth leaves his three children, daughter-in-law Valerie, son-in-law Ryan MacDougall, and six wonderful grandchildren: Zoe, Ivy, Sophie, Briggs, Ben, and Dani. He was predeceased by parents Wedell and Aileen. He is also mourned by sister Jeanie (Dan) and brothers Jim (Lynn), Doug (Judy), and Peter (Sharon), nine nieces and nephews, and numerous cousins and friends. We are grateful for the prayers, calls, messages, and gifts that have been given to us through these difficult days. A private family funeral will be held at Five Oaks Shared Ministry Church in Naicam, SK on Friday, November 12, 2021 at 2 pm. Donations in Garth’s memory can be made to the donor’s favourite charity.
