Obituary of Jim Weikum
Weikum, Gerald James
1936 - 2023
It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, Gerald James Weikum, also known as Jim, after a battle with cancer.
Jim was born on July 23, 1936, and passed away peacefully on Sunday, August 20, 2023, at the age of 87 with his family by his side.
Jim was born on the family farm in the RM of Qu’appelle. He started farming with his dad before marrying the love of his life, Carlyn in April of 1962, when he also started his passion for dairy farming. Jim retired to Indian Head where he enjoyed gardening, fishing, golfing, playing cards and visiting with family and friends. Jim loved his family very much, as well as their family gatherings and watching his grandson’s sporting events.
We would like to extend a special thanks to Bengough Home Care and the Long-Term staff and nurses for all their compassion and the wonderful care they provided for Jim and his family. Thank you and bless you all.
