DRADER, Arthur Chauncey

It is with a deep sense of sorrow, our family announces the passing of Arthur Chauncey Drader, husband, father and grandfather, on September 18, 2021 at the age of 75. Arthur is survived by his devoted wife of 53 years, Eva Pearl (Moodie), children, Kerri Taylor, Brad Drader (Pam), Leanne Brooks (Scott), grandchildren Luke, Adam, Matthew (Elise), Chloe, Ada and Sawyer, siblings David Drader (Elizabeth),Ruth Delong (David), Sylvia Franson, John (Linda), Edith (Danny), Philip (Kathy), Keith (Carla),  in-laws, Dwight Moodie (Wynn), Karen, Louise (Barry) as well as numerous nephews and nieces

He was predeceased by his parents Clarence and Thelma Drader, in-laws Clarence Moodie, Gerritt and Lorraine Vanhoek, brother Danny Drader, in-laws Alfred Moodie, Dennis and Jeanette Jacobson, Russell Moodie, Willy Franson, son in law Tim Taylor.

Arthur was born in Edmonton, Alberta, into a family that would grow to have 9 children. There was always lots of noise, laughter and someone to fight or play with. As a teenager and young adult Art was very involved in youth group, music and sports. Over the years he would bless many people with his beautiful saxophone playing. In 1968 he married Eva Pearl and they had three children and six grandchildren whom he loved so much. Art was very industrious and could do many handy things. He loved cars and trucks and was a heavy duty mechanic by trade. Art always looked ahead to the day when he would meet his Saviour and now he is with Him. Though he will be missed, the thought of him with no pain, fully healed and worshiping God with all his heart is a beautiful picture.

The family wishes to express their sincere gratitude to the staff of unit 17 at St Albert Sturgeon Hospital for all their kindness and care shown to Art during his brief stay.



Not in secret sorrow

Nor in vain regrets

But knowing God remembers

When the world forgets

Knowing when life’s shadows

‘Round about us steal

Earth can have no sorrow

Heaven cannot heal

Art has always held a special place in my heart. So sad to hear of his passing. And I will never forget the way he played the saxophone and sunday rides in his mustang after church as a teenager. Praying for you and your family Eva.

Dear Eva, Kerri, Brad, Pam, Leanne, Scott and grandkids,
We always had cause to give thanks to our heavenly Father for Art’s (and Eva’s!) desire to bring the gospel to their neighbours. It changed our lives forever 45 years ago! That’s a lot of thanksgiving to our Lord Jesus over the years!
And now I pray for God’s peace and comfort for each one of you. May our Lord Jesus surround you with His favour like a shield.
