Herb Haekel, former member of the Edmonton Chapter passed away from cancer at age-63 on December, 2018 in High River. Herb was active in the chapter during the late 1980's and early 1990's and participated in the habitat restoration works that we carried out on Sundance Creek near Edson. For those of you who were around at that time you will recall that Herb was ahead of his time, sporting an earring and purple streaks in his hair. Some of us went fly fishing to Montana with him and we got hung up at the border once they got a look at Herb. All was good though and we had a great trip! Herb spent many days chasing grayling in the Wolf Creek drainage. There is a Celebration of Life in Edmonton (Trinity Lutheran Church, Saturday January 19 at 1:00 PM)

Sad news....

I remember Herb from the old TU Edmonton days.  He was a colorful character that will be missed.
