Larry Rewega
April 5, 1963 – Dec. 13, 2023

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Larry Rewega, who left this world on Dec. 13, 2023. Born in Pierceland, Sask., on April 5, 1963, Larry was a beloved son, brother, uncle and friend to many. His departure has left an irreplaceable void in the lives of those who knew him.

Larry’s family meant everything to him. He leaves behind his devoted brother Dale Rewega; sister-in-law Tami Rewega; niece Amber Rewega (Mila); nephew Christopher Rewega (Ryland); niece Shianne Van’t Bosch (Nic,Wrenn and Wade); and nephew Bradley Kraychy (Allanah). Preceding him in death were his father Martin Rewega, mother Violet Rewega and sister Kelcy Rewega.

Growing up in Pierceland allowed Larry to develop a deep love for nature. Fishing and hunting were not just hobbies but integral parts of his life. Spending time at the family hunting camp in Pierceland brought him immense joy. As he grew older, he ventured overseas to work in the Middle East and Russia before settling down in Red Deer, Alta., where he built a successful career as a safety consultant in the oilfield industry.

Despite his busy professional life, Larry never missed an opportunity to be with his family. His presence at gatherings was always cherished by all who knew him. He had an innate ability to make everyone around him feel loved and supported through both good times and bad.

Larry’s empathy knew no bounds — it extended beyond just his family into every aspect of his life. His kindness touched many lives throughout the years, leaving lasting impressions on those fortunate enough to have known him.

A celebration will be held at a future date in Larry’s hometown of Pierceland where friends and family can come together to honour his memory.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation as per Larry’s wishes.

The loss of such a remarkable man has left us all heartbroken, but we take solace knowing that he is now reunited with those who went before him.

Larry will forever remain alive within our memories — may we find comfort there until we meet again.
