Firmin "FG" Giesbrecht

November 28, 1936 — June 24, 2022

Firmin R. Giesbrecht (fondly known as FG) was born November 28, 1936, in Steinbach, Manitoba Canada to Cornelius and Margaretha Giesbrecht. He was the youngest of 11 children. Our husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, and friend left this temporary earth home for his forever home in Heaven June 24, 2022.

His parents moved to a small community of Whitemouth Manitoba when he was 8 years old, where he lived until 24 years of age. He was a hard-working agriculture and poultry farmer until retiring at 78 years of age at their country acreage. He had a daily intimate relationship with his Savior, Jesus.
Firmin married Lillie Irene Wiebe of Durham Kansas October 30, 1960. A year later, they moved to St Marys Ontario Canada where their 1 son and 4 daughters were born. They were happily married for 34 years. In 1976, Dad decided to leave the snow belt of Ontario, moving to El Campo Texas and Macon Mississippi to farm and raise their teenagers. In 1990, they moved with their 3 daughters to his beloved Murray Kentucky home. Lillie fought a very difficult battle with cancer and left him behind in the spring of 1994.

November 9, 1996, Firmin married Agnes Arlyne Klassen in Linden Alberta Canada. They enjoyed 25 wonderful married years together discovering new worlds and lifetime relationships.

Left to cherish many precious memories are his loving wife Aggie of Murray KY, his children Lance (Shari) St Marys ON, Joan Jantz (Wade) Starbuck MN, Angela Litwiller (Art) Farmington KY, Kaylene Unruh (Miles) Farmington KY, Tamara Goertzen (Jeff) Murray KY, brother and sister in-laws, Aggie's brothers and sisters, and many nieces and nephews, 31 grandchildren, and 23 great grandchildren.

Preceding Firmin in death are his first wife Lillie (54 years old), his parents, his 10 siblings and 21-year-old granddaughter Taylor Giesbrecht Wiebe.
