We were blessed to call Erdman Epp, our father. After a long and blessed life, Erdman died peacefully at Bevan Lodge on July 28th in his 99th year. He will be dearly missed by his surviving children, Brenda (David) and James (Vanessa) as well as his grandchildren, great-grandchildren, relatives and friends.
He grew up in Rosthern, SK, one of eight children. After leaving the farm he worked for years at various jobs before settling into a 22 year career with the Co-op. In 1949 he married the love of his life, Mabel, enjoying married life until Mabel’s passing in 2005.
In 1969 he embarked on a new adventure establishing a recreational vehicle business in Abbotsford known as Fraserway Camper Manufacturing Ltd. He successfully ran the business until his retirement at which time he passed it on to his family.
Erdman was involved with the Gideon’s and was an active member of Abbotsford and Mission Evangelical Free Church for many years.
Erdman was known as a man of integrity and generosity who put faith and family first.
