Sam Oliver Bendickson August 16, 1924 – November 7, 2019

Sam left us to be together forever with the love of his life, Lil, on November 7,2019.

Sam is predeceased by his wife Lillian, great grandson Jack Luke, sisters Gladys (Norman) Fettes and Clara (Wilhelm) Fladeland, and brother Orville (Myrna) Bendickson. In-laws Ingard (Leone) Wick, Benny Wick, Orville (Vi) Wick, Ernest (Helen) Wick, Bob Schreder, Florence (Alcide) Dionne, Norma (Julian) Lohse and Jean Wick.

Survived by son Terry (Kathyrn) Bendickson; daughters Cheryl (Gary) Luke and Marla (Garth) Hurford; grandchildren and great grandchildren: Christi (Phil), Chloe and Michael Shworak; Craig (Aleta), Tanner, Connor, Nathan and Mya Bendickson; Blair (Mandy), Samuel and Ellie Bendickson; Darin (Tracy) and Henry Bendickson. Colin (Tanya), Christian, Ben and Avery Luke; Kevin (Fiona), Stirling and Holden Luke; Steven (Nicole), Georgia and Abby Luke. Trevor (Stella) and Preston Hurford; Brent (Leeta), Essa and Dax Hurford; Leah (Denis), Kara, Tori, Jace and Sadie Kotylak. Sisters-in-law Alice Schreder and Mary Wick as well as numerous nieces, nephews and friend Bernice Jaster.

Farming was Sam’s passion. He always felt he had the best life working with Lil, and later with his son Terry, doing the thing he loved most. Even after leaving Gladmar, to retire to Weyburn, Sam really never left the farm. He still worried about the weather and talked farming up to his last days. Sam was a dedicated community member and a proud Norwegian. He was a man that loved to play and watch sports, play crib, work with cattle and was able to dance to the age of 94. He loved to entertain the grandkids with tales of his youth about Busy Bee School, his “trick cats” and “speedy dodge”. His many interests made it easy for him to talk to people of all ages, making them laugh and feel welcome.

Sam’s unique ways of showing what family meant to him have given us lasting memories. This caring and kind person will be missed.

Interment will be held on Saturday, November 16, 2019 at Dovre Cemetery, Blooming, Saskatchewan at 10:30 a.m. with Pastor Martin Olson officiating and the Memorial Service will be held at 2:00 p.m at the Zion Lutheran Church, Weyburn, Saskatchewan with Pastor Victoria Mwamasika officiating. The Honorary Pallbearers are all of Sam's grandchildren.

Donations may be made in memory of Sam to the Gladmar Lutheran Church Cemetery Fund, P.O. Box 52, Gladmar, Saskatchewan S0C 1A0.
