We Remember

Padwick, Herb (Paddy)

January 1, 1970 — January 1, 1970

Passed away on May 5 2012 at Kelowna General Hospital after a lengthy battle with cancer at the age of 70 years. He is survived by his wife Leslie, his son Chris (Karen), and grandchildren Ryan and Lauren of Colorado, his parents Herb Sr. and Isobel Padwick of Calgary, sister Anne Reid (Mike) and family of Calgary, and sister Cathy Coates (Joe) and family of Calgary. Herb was born in Winnipeg Manitoba. He grew up in Regina and Regina Beach. He married Leslie Lemcke from Wolseley, Sask in 1968 and lived in Regina, Saskatchewan, where he worked at Roloflex, a family owned business. Following his time at Roloflex he worked for IBM and won Rookie of the Year in his first year. However, Herb was a quintessential “car guy” at heart. He joined Percival Mercury in Regina and quickly distinguished himself as a top salesman. After a long and successful career as general sales manager at Percival Mercury, he started his own consulting company in 1992, and began doing sales training for the Murray Auto Group in Winnipeg, Manitoba as well as other dealerships across the country. His relationship with the Murray Auto Group flourished and he and Leslie moved to Winnipeg where he joined the Murray GM store. They became partners with the Murray Group in a GM dealership in Estevan, Saskatchewan in 2003. Herb had a great fondness for Estevan and enjoyed the time he spent with the Estevan Chamber of Commerce among other local organizations. After several successful years of running that dealership, he retired in 2008. Herb always wanted to be a pilot. He got his pilot’s license at the age of 65 and was very active in the maintenance and management of Estevan airport. Herb embraced the snowbird lifestyle, and shared his time between Canada and the United States, where he would visit his grandchildren in Colorado and golf in Arizona. Throughout his life, Herb was a music lover. He spent many years playing guitar and singing in several bands that performed throughout Saskatchewan. Herb had a very positive effect on many people’s lives and he will be missed by his family and friends. We invite you to join us to celebrate his wonderful life at the Wascana Country Club, Regina, Saskatchewan, on May 29, 2012, from 3pm to 5pm.
