Ubald was born on August 22, 1932, on the family farm. He was a very hard worker and loved the farm, he tried a few different jobs but always came back home. He married the love of his life, Flore, on July 5, 1955. After a little while, they moved to Albertville to own and operate a general store. Farm life kept calling him back, so they moved to the acreage in 1968 and farmed until his retirement. Not one to sit still, he enjoyed helping his sons with their farming activities whenever he could. Throughout his life, he was a Credit Union board member, loved going ice fishing, cutting firewood, playing cards, and relaxing in front of the woodstove. He was a man of faith and family and often could be found on the deck after Mass surrounded by his loved ones, having a cup of coffee. He will be greatly missed by family and friends alike. Due to COVID-19, Funeral Services will be held in the summer at St. James Roman Catholic Church, Albertville, SK. Condolences may be sent to the family at www.grays.ca.
