Obituary

DREGER: Evolt
Oct. 4, 1933 – July 4, 2021
Evolt Dreger aged 87 years passed away peacefully at Parkland Lodge in Lanigan on July4th, 2021. Evolt was born October 4th, 1933 to Henry & Marie Dreger in Watrous, Saskatchewan. He lived in Simpson for the majority of his life. He also lived in Nipawin and Watrous. When Evolt was younger he left with his brothers Norman & Harold to find work in Alberta. He got a job at a fly in camp. He said that job was the first time he had flown and would be the last, as he thoroughly did not enjoy the rough flight in the little aircraft. Evolt also worked on a phone line installation crew. He worked with his good friend Lloyd Mattson. Lloyd tells us that he, Evolt, his brother John and his brother-in-law Bob Moren worked on the crew. Johnny drove the truck and hauled supplies. Evolt & Lloyd donned spurs and climbed the poles installing the insulators. Evolt was happiest working outdoors from dawn to dusk. He enjoyed growing a big garden. When it got so that he could no longer do that, he purchased raised garden beds, assembled them and grew a little garden. In later life he began tearing down buildings to salvage the lumber to build sheds and ice shacks. If you are in and around Simpson & area you will see many of his built to last sheds in yards and his ice shacks on the lake. In the 80’s he ran a second hand store out of the old Zentner’s Sales & Service building for a while. He built himself 2 workshops in Simpson. The first one he built is owned & still used by Richardson Services. His shop behind his little house in Simpson is still standing, although a little swayed on one wall, he was still using it right up until he went into the Parkland Lodge in Lanigan. While he was still able to he would spend lots of time driving his little red van around Simpson and area. He used to like picking bottles and visiting with the occasional person. Not a day would go by that someone did not see him driving by. When he became unable to stay at home any longer in March of 2020 he made his new home at the Parkland Lodge in Lanigan. He enjoyed his time there with the staff that took such wonderful care of him. It was so good to see him thrive and be healthy and happy until the end. Evolt was predeceased by his father Henry Dreger, mother Marie Dreger, sisters Edith, Bertha, Helen, Dora, Elsie, Rosie, Margaret, Marlene & Ailene and brothers Walter, Eddie, Bill, John, Robert and Norman. He is survived by his brothers Vernon and Harold and many nieces and nephews. At Evolt’s request there will be no Funeral Service. Family will hold a Celebration of Life at a later date. For anyone wishing to donate in his memory, Central Parkland Lodge Activities Department or the SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) have been chosen.
