Obituary for David Neil Heppner

Eden’s Funeral Home
After an extended stay in the Good Samaritan Vista Village facility in Pincher Creek, David Heppner passed away on Nov. 7 at the age of 84 years.

David was born on May 1, 1938, the son of Joseph Cornelius (Neil) Heppner and Beulah Winifred Moton, and was raised on the farm near Pincher Creek, Alta. While working in Pincher Creek he met his future wife, Margaret (Betty) Hann, and they married in 1959. In 1972 the family moved back to the farm south of town and David split his time between farming and working in construction throughout Western Canada.

David sold the family farm in 1989 and semi-retired, after which he continued to be a common sight at auction sales and garage sales for several years, continuing to accumulate many “treasures.”

David is survived by his children: Honesty Heppner of Pincher Creek, Murray Heppner (Marie) of St. Albert, Christina (Danny) Murfin of Millet, Alta., and Michael Heppner of Pincher Creek, along with six grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

David was predeceased by his parents and two half-sisters: Marie (Harold) Lunn and Daphne (Conrad) Brown; his half-brother Leonard Heppner and a granddaughter, Catherine Heppner.

The family would like to thank Laverne, Crystal and all the staff at Vista Village facility for their outstanding and compassionate care over the last few years of David’s life.

A family graveside service will be held in Pincher Creek at a later date. To forward condolences, please go to Eden’s Funeral Home (www.edensfuneralhome.com/listings).

If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Good Samaritan Vista Village facility (gss.org/donate/) in Pincher Creek, or alternately to the Alberta Alzheimer Society (alzheimer.ca/ab/en).
