October 14, 1949 - March 11, 2021

Early in the morning of March 11, 2021, Sid said “enough of this battle with cancer; I am going to a better place” with his family breathing a sigh of relief that he could once again, be without discomfort.

Missing Sid until we meet again are his loving wife Burna; children: Robert (Jennifer) and Patrick Charlene (Steven) Barenkopf, Keith (Maggie) Berns, Julie-Anne Tiegen, and Eric (Cheri) Berns; thirteen grandchildren and seventeen great-grandchildren; his mother, Stellla; brothers: Denis (Elise), Ernie (Ana Lou) and Raymond (Marilynn); brother-in-law Gerry as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and very dear friends.

He was predeceased by his father Phillip; brother Gordie; son-in-law John Tiegen and his in-laws; Roland and Juliette Ward.

Sid’s passions in life were his family, home, dear friends and 30 years working for NAR and CN Rail.  Railroading played a major role in his life.  Sid’s big heart, and genuinely caring plus his wacky sense of humour have touched so many. We were truly blessed having him in our lives.

Due to COVID, a Celebration of Sid’s life will take place at a later date.

Donations may be made on his behalf to the Cross Cancer Institute Edmonton
