March 27, 1938 – May 13, 2021
It is with deep sadness that the family of Uldis Delveris announce his peaceful passing on May 13, 2021, at home with his family at his side. Uldis is much loved and remembered dearly by his wife Ann, his daughters Carol (Jude), Diane (Bill) and Brenda (Sandy), grandchildren Ewan, Jake, Abby and Ethan, sister Arija, niece Ilze (Bryon), and nephew Maris (Annette). Also his extended family Cathy (Jim), Doug (Jolene), and grandchildren Nathan, Brett, Lauren and Jocelyn. He was predeceased by his first wife Irene of 38 years, brother in-laws John and Janis (John) and niece Sandra. Uldis was known for his kind, generous, warm and loyal nature and was blessed to have many lifelong friends. He was also a very proud, devoted and loving grandfather who happily spent countless hours at hockey arenas, soccer fields, gymnastic competitions and dance events. Uldis was born in Daugavpils, Latvia on March 27, 1938 but was forced to flee with family as a child during the Second World War. He lived in Germany before immigrating to Canada in 1949. He was a natural athlete and was very active hiking, biking and golfing with family and friends, and enjoyed travelling extensively. Uldis was a keen student graduating from the University of Alberta with a degree in Electrical Engineering and worked for AGT (now Telus) for most of his career until retirement. The family would like to express their appreciation for all the love, friendship and support that was graciously provided throughout his lifetime and especially during this difficult time. We would also like to acknowledge the Palliative Care Team, Pod F, as well as the other health care workers that provided care and kindness to Uldis during his illness. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society (www.cancer.ca) or the Aplastic Anemia and Myelodysplasia Association of Canada (www.aamac.ca). Cremation has already taken place Due to Covid-19 restrictions, a private Funeral Service will be held at 2:00pm on Thursday, May 27, 2021 at Hainstock’s Funeral Home in Edmonton.
