August 10, 1927 – May 7, 2020
It is with mixed emotions that we announce the passing of Adam Eckert at Drayton Valley Continuing Care on the evening of Thursday, May 7, 2020 at the age of 93 years. Our hearts are heavy, yet we are relieved that is home with his Lord and Saviour. He will always be lovingly remembered by his wife of nearly 55 years, Barbara; children, Carolyn, Dyan (Carol Palynchuk) and Timothy Joel (Louise); grandchildren, Caitlin, Rachael and Ethan; brother, Walter and sisters-in-law, Angela and Stella, as well as nieces, nephews and many long-time friends. Adam is predeceased by his parents, Phillip and Eleanora; brothers, Otto and Harold and two infant brothers. Due to Covid-19, Adam’s life will be celebrated at Emmaus Lutheran Church, with Interment being held at Riverview Cemetery at a later date. For those who so desire, memorial donations in Adam’s honour may be made directly to Emmaus Lutheran church or to the Drayton Valley Hospital Foundation’s Palliative Care campaign. Adam’s family would like to extend their heartfelt appreciation to Dr. Froud and the dear nurses at the Drayton Valley Hospital and Continuing Care for their love and compassion.
