SUMMACH Cecil Alexander (19162006) In the early morning hours of September 13, 2006, Cecil Summach, age 90, passed peacefully from this world into his heavenly home. The Funeral Service will be held at Emmanuel Baptist Church, Taylor St. and Acadia Dr., on Saturday, September 16 at 2:00 p.m.. He is survived by his two sons, Neil (Bev) of Saskatoon, and Grant (Diane) of Irricana, Alberta; his two grandsons, Blair Summach (Heather) of Rosetown, and Scott Summach (Jenn) of Saskatoon; and his most precious great grandson, Brock Summach of Rosetown; his sisters-in-law, Florence Summach, Flo Summach, Lynn Summach, Wilda Minty and Marge Johnston; brother-inlaw, George (Grace) Campbell; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. He was predeceased by his loving wife, Elaine; his parents, William and Mary; his brothers, Harold, Bob (Esther), Ted, Lester (Mary), and Mervin (Terry); his sisters, Elaine (Bill) Green and Marietta Campbell; his sister-in-law, Bernice (Ken) Peters; his brothers-in-law, Ralph (Flo) Johnston, Dr. Bob Johnston and Ron Minty; and his granddaughter-in-law, Nicole Summach. Cecil was born at Tregarva, SK. and grew up in the Delisle/ Asquith area. In his early years farming played a major role in his life. Throughout his life he enjoyed getting back to the farm to see how the crops were doing. Cecil married Elaine Johnston on January 8, 1944 and together they enjoyed 57 years of marriage before her death in 2001. Cecil was known for his great sense of humor which he maintained until his final days. He was liked by all who knew him. His nickname was "The Candy Man " as he always had candies in his pockets to give away. Cecil was a wonderful, loving husband and grandpa who was very involved in the lives of his grandsons. We will all miss him terribly, but we are thankful for his full and faithful life. We want to thank the staff of Porteous Lodge (Villa) for their loving care of our father (grandfather) over the last 18 months. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Emmanuel Baptist Church, Memorial Fund, or Porteous Lodge (Villa) or a charity of your choice.

I just learned of Uncle Cecil's passing yesterday. Even though we are separated by many miles, I want to pass on our condolences. As noted by others, he will be remembered for that wonderful smile and sense of humor.

Cecil will be remembered for his positive outlook on life. He always seemed to look on the bright side. The first thing Adeline said about Cecil when we heard about his passing was that he always had a candy for her at church. He had a strong faith as a Christian that he put into action and service. Ron remembered the time he helped water a neighbor's newly seeded lawn that Ron was taking care of. Cecil was driving the water truck for a nearby new road and he said that he could just put down a light spray. He was smiling the whole time as he drove slowly by just misting the lawn with the side spray. He always took time for others. He will be missed. There are many fond memories.

We are in Lawton, Oklahoma visiting our daughter and family at this time. We are remembering the Cecil Summach family at this time in our prayers and thoughts.

Cecil welcomed us to the neighborhood on 1st Street and we were happy to have them as neighbours. He was a great "Candy Man"!
