WIRTH
August Martin
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of August Martin Wirth (known as Uncle Rick to many) on July 2, 2014 in New Westminster, BC. He will be greatly missed by his only brother Ted (Dianne), nieces Christine (Maria) Johnson (Dan Baisley), Rebecca Everitt (Justin) and Marianne Wirth (Dominic Manus) and nephews Richard Kelly (Laila) and Graham Wirth as well as great-nieces and nephews Dustin, Savannah, Henry, Jade, Thomas, Kyler and Victoria. Numerous cousins in western Canada as well as a few special friends. Predeceased by his parents Wally and Lillian Wirth. August was raised in Neudorf and Regina, Saskatchewan. His aptitude for art was noted very early and he studied at SAIT in Calgary. After art school, he moved to New Westminster and painting became his life passion. A very humble man, he often looked after several elderly folks, doing their weekly shopping, etc. for them. Not an easy feat since he didn't drive! He answered the telephone with a hearty "Praise the Lord!" and as the cancer took it's toll, he changed that to "Praying for a miracle". Cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, July 19, 2014 at 2 pm at Broadway Pentacostal Lodge on the 5th floor, 1377 Lamey's Mill Road, Vancouver.
