Obituary for Allen Matthew Schetzsle

Allen Matthew Schetzsle Allen Matthew Schetzsle, first born to Gordon and Bernice Schetzsle in Consort, Alberta on October 12, 1958, passed away suddenly at his home on April 19, 2013 at the age of 54. The eldest of seven siblings, growing up on a farm, he nurtured an early love of animals, except for the gophers, for which he snared. He worked various jobs as a farm hand to earn his spending money and graduated from Consort school in 1976. His first son Jason was born to he and Gloria Ference in 1975. After graduation, he worked at Wiltse Ford while attaining his automotive mechanic certificate at SAIT, bought himself a bike and traveled to Phoenix. In 1983 he married Denise (Baskey) and later moved to the City of Edmonton. In 1989 his son Scott was born, then two years later, Chelsey. Throughout his life, he pipelined for Benedict Holdings, and spent most of his years working at Redline Performance in Edmonton. He so enjoyed his time at family gatherings, a game of crib; harvesting with his dad on the family farm, cruising on his bike, hosting camp at Slave, teaching his nieces and nephews to fish and shoot gophers, a cool one with his friends at the Sands, being at the race track, and keeping tabs on the Flames! Forever loved for his practical jokes; bringing light to difficult moments; his loyalty and friendship; picking out the “perfect” Christmas cards helping out a friend in need; filling customers pockets with bolts; collecting anonymous keys to add to any victims keychains; tossing breadcrumbs on your trailer at night (knowing how early in the am the squirrels would wake you); dishing out “Hurts Donuts” to gullible victims; and of course his favorite saying, “If they don’t find you handsome, they should find you handy! Handy, he was! The most sought after mechanic we know. We miss him terribly, and wish he were still here.................with us. He is survived by his three children: Scott and Chelsey Schetzsle, Jason (Chrystal) Ference, children, Charlize, Neely, and Justin; his parents: Gordon and Bernice Schetzsle; his brother Patty (Carrie) Schetzsle, their children Chad, Brandon, Tia; his sisters: Charlene (Miles) White, children Danielle, Julene, Amarie; Cindy (Les) Por, children Barry, Shane, Chris; Brenda (Rocky) Kroeger, children Daryl, Brad, Rick; Jody (Chris) Simpson, children Trevor, Ethan; Tammy (Leigh) McDiarmid, children Merrick, Lauren; companion Natasha Pruski; Grandmother, Alvina (Fischer) Scheible; Aunts Delia (Hal) Sorenson, Agnes (Ken) Rumohr, Carol (Rod) McCuaig, Donna (Don) Staten, Janice (Dale) Shield; numerous cousins and special friends.
