Alvin (Beno) Paquin
We are very saddened to have to announce the passing of Beno on Monday, November 16th at the age of 63 years. After overcoming cancer in 2005 and 2009, he was fortunate to be in remission for 10 years before the cancer returned in 2019. He fought with great strength and determination.
Beno spent his whole life in Fort Qu’Appelle. He was an avid fisherman, hunter, and trapper. It brought him great joy to take his family on their annual summer fishing trips to Besnard Lake. Throughout the years he participated in and won many competitive walleye fishing touraments. Being able to have his children as his fishing partners was always his greatest win. In his younger days, he played fastball with Fort Sports and was a goalie in his minor hockey days. When the chance came around he never turned down a friendly game of cards. He was quick-witted and had an infectious laugh that we will never forget. His loyal canine friend, Sada, never left his side.
Beno was predeceased by his parents Henry and Jean, brothers Dave (Gale) and Albert, brother in law Don Robertson, special niece Corinna Thompson, mother and father-in-law Olga and Otto Senger, brother-in-law Harvey (Barb) Senger. Survived by his loving wife Glenda, son Brett (Erin), daughter Dayna, sisters Collette Robertson and Linda (Dave) Morgan, brothers Hank (Shirley) and Terry (Barb), sister-in-law Marilyn Paquin, special nephew Doug Paquin, and many nieces and nephews that he cherished.
Thank you to the staff at Allan Blair Cancer Center, Palliative home care nurses, and the loving care the family received from the staff at the All Nations Healing Hospital in Fort Qu’Appelle.
