WHEATON, Cecil Albert (August 10, 1909-August 11, 2005)
Cecil died after a long life, rich with community service, adventure, and family. C.A. or Cec as he was known to his many Friends and associates in Saskatoon, was, along with Eileen, his wife of 66 years, a tireless booster of Saskatoon and contributor to the civic community. C.A. leaves his dear wife Eileen, two daughters, Kathryn BARNWELL, of Nanaimo, British Columbia, and Nancy BJERRING, son- in-law Andy BJERRING, and granddaughter, Kate BJERRING, all of London, Ontario, sister Edythe STOCKAN of Saskatoon, brother Don WHEATON and wife, Marion of Edmonton, Alberta, and sister-in-law, Evelyn KENNEDY of Calgary, Alberta. C.A. was predeceased by his sister Mame THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON. He will be missed by his many nieces and nephews, especially Ross and Trona WHEATON of Saskatoon. C.A. was a graduate of the University of Saskatchewan (1937), and the Saskatoon Normal School (1934), and taught in Landis, Saskatchewan and Haultain School (Saskatoon) from 1934-1941. After wartime work in Ajax, Ontario from 1941-1946, he owned and operated the family company, Wheaton Electric Co. Ltd., started by his father A.J. WHEATON and Uncle C.R. WHEATON in 1913. After selling the business in 1965, he worked in fundraising and school liaison for the University of Saskatchewan, and Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology until 1977. During his 60 years of civic service in Saskatoon, he was member or president of the Saskatoon of the Saskatoon Construction Association, Rotary, the University of Saskatchewan Alumni Association, the Canadian Automobile Association, K40, the Sasktoon Advisory Board, Board of Governors of the Saskatoon City Hospital, the Exhibition Board, the Arts Centre (later the Mendel Art Gallery), the Saskatoon Exhibition Board, the Chamber of Commerce, the Masonic Temple, the Western Development Museum, and Knox United Church. He was a city councilor from 1957-1967, whose proudest accomplishment was the revitalization of the downtown core with the building of the Saskatoon Centennial Auditorium. C.A.'s love of travel took him and his family all over the world. He traveled to Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, Australia, and China. His love of cars, a lifelong interest, led him to restore both a 1936 Cord car and a 1949 Rolls Royce. He loved music and dancing, fine food, and conviviality, family, Friends, and community. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Western Development Museum. Funeral services were held on Monday, August 14, 2005, 2: 00 p.m. at Knox United Church.
