KADACH, Albert


Our wonderful father, “Opa” passed away peacefully into the arms of Jesus on Aug. 1st, at the age of 90.

Albert was born near Rovno, Poland on May 10, 1930 – growing up on a small farm in very difficult times.  He persevered however, and was the first of his 7 siblings to immigrate to Canada in 1949, working as a farmhand in Wetaskiwin, AB – then moving to Edmonton a year later to become a journeyman plasterer.  He later started his own successful stucco company, gaining a reputation of excellence and honesty – his word could be trusted.  Albert was a follower of Christ and took his faith seriously.  While attending church meetings in Winnipeg, he met the love of his life, Helen Epp, and they were married in 1959.  Dad dearly loved mom and their 3 sons!  They were married for 59 years until Helen passed away in 2018.  Dad was crazy about his 14 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren and loved to bless them with gifts!  Albert was a man of few words, but showed his love for his family and others through his servant heart.  He was such a hard worker, and a handyman who was forever helping others, shoveling sidewalks, and fixing things.  He loved tending to his immaculate flower rockery beds and growing a huge garden every year.  Albert enjoyed the many friendships made at the German Church of God where he sang in choirs and quartets. He served in the church, faithfully doing maintenance at the Ebenezer Senior’s Homes until his health declined after a reaction to medicine – later being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s as well.  In 2016, Albert & Helen moved to a Lethbridge nursing home, with care from his son’s family there.  Thank you Dad, for teaching us to treat others with respect.  You didn’t see yourself as an important man … but please know that your life has made this world a better place – we will miss you!  Albert is survived by 3 sons: Rudy, Paul (Heather), Larry, as well as 2 brothers – Gus & Adolf Kadach (Edith) & sisters, Lydia Janzen (Frank) & Elsie Seide, and numerous grandchildren.  Also mourning are in-laws, Helen Epp, Leni Epp, Art & Kathleen Epp.  Albert was predeceased by his wife, Helen, parents, Rudolf & Johanna Kadach, and brothers, Oskar, Ernst, and Emil Kadach.

A Celebration of Life will be held at the Edmonton Church of God 10135 85 Ave NW on Friday, Aug. 7 at 10a.m. Family & friends are also invited to a viewing on Thursday Aug. 6th 7-9 p.m. at Serenity Funeral Home 5311 91 St. NW.

Remembering your dad today as a person of integrity. He was an employee at Gatway Plastering for many years, a foreman and took his work seriously! He has left a lasting legacy for his family of work ethic and his deep faith in God. He will be missed by those who knew him best. Our deepest and sincere condolence as you say your final goodby to your dad and Opa! May God comfort you during this time of sorrow!

Hello Paul, Larry and Rudy
My deepest condolences on the passing of your
wonderful father. I remember him as a hardworking, quiet, principled and kind man.
I also remember the Sunday meals at his home with your family. They were very much looked forward to and appreciated. Your mom and dad gave me my very first Sunday 3 piece suit… chocolate brown 🙂
Take care guys and remember the good times.

May God be with you at this last farewell. May He grant safe travels and keep you in His care.

I remember your dad chipping away at the ice on the church parking lot. He had a servant heart.
Praying for you.
