The city of Moose Jaw is mourning the loss of a community leader. Bevin Leipert suffered a stroke last week and passed away Saturday, August 9th, 2014, at the age of 64.
Leipert was an integral part of Leipert Financial but was also a busy member of the community. Bill Jameson of JGL Livestock was a friend for close to 30 years and says Bevin contributed lots of time and money back to the community.
"He would never turn anyone down and he'd do everything he was asked, he was head of the Saskatchewan Shriner. The Shriners, as everyone knows, run several hospitals in North America and Bevin worked tirelessly for them and contributed a lot of his own money in doing that."
"He was just a great community guy."
Leipert and Jameson were also on the Multiplex steering committee together helping to fundraise for YaraCentre and Mosaic Place.
A celebration of life is set for Friday at the Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre starting at 4pm.
