Herbert Ernest Nadiger, 86 years, of Central Parkland Lodge, Lanigan passed away peacefully on September 23, 2018 with family by his side. Herb was born on April 11, 1932 at home on the family farm in the Haliburton district to Joseph and Byng (nee Redman) Nadiger. Herb grew up on the farm and attended Haliburton School in the area. Following his education, he worked in road construction for a time and then as an elevator operator. In 1965 Herb started fulltime farming. He initially ran a mixed farming operation and then eventually turned to straight grain farming. He took an active role in the surrounding communities, helping to found the Lockwood Community Club, Lockwood Curling Club, the Haliburton Community Club, was a member of the Sask Wheat Pool, and an honorary member of the Kinsmen Club of Jansen. He also served as the Reeve for the RM of Prairie Rose from 1981 to 1998 Herb loved to dance and to play cards with family and friends. He had an affection for Border Collie dogs and they raised many over the years at the farm. The family enjoyed fun times over the years at their cabin at Barrier Ford and Herb spent many hours towing kids behind the boat as they learned how to ski. In 2001 Herb was diagnosed with Frontal Lobe Dementia. He remained at home with Elaine until December 2005 when, due to the progression of the disease, Herb became a resident of Central Parkland Lodge in Lanigan, where he would live until the present. His family is grateful for the wonderful care he received while living there. Herbert will be remembered by all who knew him as a kind man with a very gentle nature and a teasing twinkle in his eye. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife Elaine Nadiger of Lanigan; two daughters, one son-in-law and one granddaughter: Tracy Nadiger and Nancy (Curtis) Church and daughter Jayda, all of St. Albert, AB; his sister Connie (Don) St. Onge of Regina and numerous nieces and nephews. Herb was predeceased by his parents, Joseph and Byng Nadiger; grandson, Erik Church; siblings: Walter (Pinky) Nadiger, Beth (Wilfred) Doidge, and Aline (Louis) Ritz; and by brother-in-law Bill Ellis. The Funeral Service for Herb was held on Thursday, September 27, 2018 at 2:30 p.m. at Knox United Church, Lanigan officiated by Rev. Jack Robson. Interment took place in the Lockwood Cemetery.
