HORST FAUSER 1931 - 2013
Life Member Lethbridge Fish & Game Association
On November 14, 2013 proponents of wildlife conservation in Alberta lost one of our more prolific leaders. Mr. Horst Fauser passed away in the Calgary Foothills Hospital at the age of 82 years. Horst immigrated to Canada from Germany to work in the dairy industry and sometime in 1968 was introduced to fishing and hunting by his then neighbour Bill Elliot. In the same year he joined the Lethbridge Fish & Game Association, shorty after taking on the role of Environmental Chairman. Horst continued to be very active in the club both locally and provincially and was elected as the Alberta Fish and Game Associations Chairman for non-renewable resources in 1977. Although incredibly active and passionate about many conservation and youth related issues which pushed him into the spotlight Horst was noted for being a straight talker that got right to the heart of the matter without wasting time or words.
Horst’s involvement in the Alberta Fish and Game community continued at the highest levels and in 1993 he was elected President of the Alberta Fish and Game Association. A quote that sums up his philosophy and life motivation in his own words is “Our strength and continued efforts are needed to maintain fish and game management under the principle that fish and game belongs to all people of Alberta.” He lived by those words and we thank Horst Fauser for his years of dedicated service to the Fish and Game community. Rest in Peace Horst and know we work to continue your goal of keeping the Fish and Game of Alberta available for the enjoyment of all. A time of silence for Horst was called by Lethbridge Fish and Game President Rick Blakeley and observed at the general meeting on November 18th. A Memorial Service will be held at CORNERSTONE FUNERAL HOME, 2800 Mayor Magrath Drive South, Lethbridge, on Monday, December 2nd, 2013 at 1:00 P.M.
