Arthur Albert Foulston

May 16, 1926 – January 16, 2019

Arthur Albert Foulston passed away on Wednesday January 16, 2019 at the age of 92 years. The fifth of ten children born to Albert and Grace Foulston, growing up in Lilac, Saskatchewan. Art is survived by his sister Gladys, his six children and their respective families.

Art moved to Alberta in his twenties, eventually settling down in High Prairie, Alberta and was active in both the Banana Belt and Triangle Communities. Art engaged in many occupations, such as local milk man, trucking gravel, construction, working for the local school division, managing various apartment buildings and ultimately a local farmer. Art loved wide open spaces, blue skies, his hay fields and later in life his bunk house with wood burning stove.

Art loved horses, music, singing, playing his guitar, dancing, playing horseshoes and playing badminton. Art regularly went on trail rides with his team, where he would entertain the group by singing and playing his guitar around the camp fire. Art was always up for a good community dance, where he was often gazed at in awe of his skill. This also transferred to playing badminton, winning many tournaments, often being the eldest entrant by far.

At the age of 86, Art sadly had to leave his beloved farm and moved in with his youngest daughter in Edmonton, Alberta who has been his primary caregiver for the last seven years. During those years, Art required the support of elder care facilities. Art’s daughters, June and Jessica, would like to thank the care staff of Garneau Hall for four years of care, as well as the care staff at Capital Care Lynnwood during Art’s last year. His daughters would also like to thank the other residents and their families who had become an extended family to Art.

Following Art’s wishes, no service will be held, and his daughters intend to spread his ashes in the countryside he loved where horses will forever run. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimer’s Society of Canada would be appreciated. Art’s daughters would also like to request that you all spend quality time with your own loved ones and verbalize your love for them as often as you can.

Edgar “Ed” Charles Hauger

August 4, 1944 – December 29, 2018

It is with heavy hearts we announce that Edgar Charles Hauger, “Ed,” age 74 years, of Edmonton, Alberta, passed away suddenly on Saturday, December 29, 2018 at the Edmonton General Hospital.

Ed will be forever remembered by his sons, Craig and Travis; daughter in law, Mandy; grandchildren, Cara, Kayla, Colten, Jalene, Rylee, Jessy and Easton; great grandsons, Bentley and Declan; step-mother, Sally Scobie; step-sisters, Gayle, Linda, and Karen; cousin and “brother he never had” Harold (Ginny) Burgess; good friend and cousin, Eleanor Olsen; as well as many more family members and friends.

Edgar was predeceased by his father, Lyman Hauger; mother, Irma Hoover; and step-father, John “Jack” Scobie.

Edgar was born in Dawson Creek, Bc. He suffered the tragic loss of his father, Lyman Hauger, at the age of two. In 1957, when Edgar was 13 years old, his mother, Irma Mary Hoover, married John “Jack” Scobie of Telfordville, Alberta. One year later, in December of 1958, Irma passed away, leaving Edgar to be raised by his stepfather, Jack Scobie, and later his stepmother, Sally.

Edgar made a living by being a long-distance truck driver. In his later years, Edgar suffered badly from Multiple Sclerosis. He spent much of his time at “The Drake” drinking Coke and listening to live bands. Edgar loved being a grandfather. He was especially a hit when he drove his scooter right onto the court at his granddaughter’s volleyball game. Edgar will be forever remembered for the twinkle in his pretty blue eyes and his impish, mischievous grin.
