Benno “Ben” Wayne Bonney
November 9, 1933 – April 18, 2015

Mr. Ben Bonney of Prince Albert, SK, (and formerly of LeRoy, SK), passed away on Saturday, April 18, 2015, at Royal University Hospital, Saskatoon, SK, at the age of 81 years.

Ben was born at home in a small farm house near Lockwood, SK, the youngest of 16 children. His family later moved to Jansen, SK, where Ben began school and later transferred to Illinois Country School in the RM of Leroy, SK.

At age 10, Ben became a follower of Jesus Christ, a decision that would be an integral part of the rest of his life.

On June 12, 1957, he married Evelyn Elsie Seifert. God blessed their marriage with three children, David, Barry and Sharon.

Ben began farming and doing construction on the side. Later, he quit farming and began his own contracting company in LeRoy.

Though always actively involved in his local church and Gideon's International, later on in his life, Ben felt called into pastoral ministry and served several churches while continuing to work in construction.

Two years ago, Ben and Evelyn moved to Prince Albert to be closer to part of their family. They also found new friends in their condo complex, and church families.

Ben will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by his wife of 57 years, Evelyn (nee Seifert) Bonney of Prince Albert; their three children: David (Dawn), Barry (LaWanda), and Sharon; his two sisters: Helen Kupp and Alice McLellan; and 11 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

The Memorial Service was held at Prince Albert Alliance Church, Prince Albert, on Saturday, April 25, 2015, at 2:00 p.m., officiated by Pastor Mark Bergen. Interment will take place at a later date. If you would like to give a gift in honour of Ben Bonney, please consider Gideons International or a charity of your choice.
