Obituary of Bernie Schaeffler

January 11, 1937 – Bruno, Saskatchewan

September 26, 2022 – Calgary, Alberta


It is with great sadness that the family of Bernie Schaeffler announces his passing on September 26, 2022 at the age of 85.


Bernie was born in Bruno, Saskatchewan on January 11, 1937. He moved to Calgary in 1960 and married Lynne in 1961. He was a founding member of the Saskatoon based Draggins Car Club and was passionate about hot-rods and car runs.


He was an original member of Crooked Narrows Fishing Club, which maintained a fishing camp at Lac LaRonge, Saskatchewan, where many a pickerel and jack succumbed to his fishing skills. There was not a rink too cold or too far to prevent his attendance to watch his son, then grandkids play hockey. He never missed a grandchild’s performance of any kind


Bernie is survived and missed by his loving wife Lynne; his daughter Tracy (Tim); his son Todd (Shelly); and his grandchildren Jaye, Casey, Sydney, and Brett. 


Private family services will be held followed by a Celebration of Bernie’s life later this year. Condolences, memories, and photos may be shared and viewed here.


In living memory of Bernie Schaeffler, a tree will be planted in the Ann & Sandy Cross Conservation Area by McInnis & Holloway Funeral Homes, Crowfoot, 82 Crowfoot Circle NW, Calgary, AB T3G 2T3, Telephone: 403-241-0044.
