Born and raised in Saskatchewan in the Kenaston area, Laddy started farming in the Simpson area in the early 1950’s. Laddy’s major life events included being baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses in 1955 and marrying Betty (Atz) in June 1956. Her death in 1982 caused him great sorrow and he relied on the support of relatives and friends to help him cope. After farming for most of his life, in November 2013, Laddy moved to Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, to be closer to Kim and his family.
Although Laddy was able to enjoy his own company (and a good book), he loved his family and being with people. Visiting with friends and family, playing baseball and doing many other outdoor activities brought him pleasure. He was willing to lend a hand whether it was for furnace repair, welding, butchering, seeding, harvesting, haying, or just providing a listening ear. Energetic, practical, hard -working and conscientious, he saw beauty in creation and worked to beautify wherever he lived.
He learned to know the Creator through his study of the Bible. God’s promise of a resurrection to a paradise earth (John 5:28, 29) was close to his heart and he would share that hope with those who were interested.
Laddy will be sadly missed by his children: Cindy (Adam) Siwicki; Kim (Teresa) Didur; and Shana (Greg) Lobb; his grandsons and great-grandchildren: Kalin and Adrianna Didur (Logan and Summer); Zachary and Adeline Didur (Lorelai and Autumn); and Benjamin Didur; in-laws Les McDonald, Lois Didur, Ted Buchan, John and Bev Kaay, Lucien and Bonnie Demers, as well as nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his parents Fred and Nellie Didur, his wife Betty, siblings Olga Tisnic, Sophie McDonald, John Didur, Matt Didur, Nettie Buchan.
