Artie was the youngest of 11 children born in Zehner, SK, and moved to Regina at an early age where he graduated from Balfour Tech. He worked for COOP refinery in Regina for 13 years and lived in 2 out of the 3 homes he built in Regina. 1964 Artie moved to Calgary with his wife and 3 daughters and in 1966 their son Randall was born. He worked for western COOP fertilizer for many years; in between shifts he built their forever home in Mapleridge. Artie later moved into real estate and home building starting his own company CJ RAND Precision Home Builders Ltd. where he built many homes.
Artie loved sports, music, and dancing. He was great at jiving and met Joannie at Trianon Ballroom. Artie played baseball for the Regina Red Sox, and hockey for the Estevan Bruins, Milestone Warriors, and Ponteix Penguins, and coached the fertilizer plant hockey team. We take comfort that our loved one is free from pain, never forgotten by his devoted family as well as numerous relatives and friends.
