Christopher Glenn Hiebert

July 12, 1976 - February 21, 2019



It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden and unexpected passing of Christopher Hiebert at the age of 42, in the early morning of February 21, 2019, due to a severe case of pneumonia.


Chris was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, to his parents Bea and Dan Hiebert along with his two brothers. From an early age he developed a love for sports, which later on in his life allowed him to become an amazing coach and fan. At the age of 22, Chris married his highschool sweetheart Lela Schempp on August 1, 1998 and together they had two beautiful children, Larissa and Cadin. His children became his biggest fans and as they grew and developed the same love for sports, he then became their biggest fan and supporter. During the winters, Chris spent his time at the Arena coaching or justy simply cheering on his kids. In the summers, Chris loved boating, camping, and baseball with his friends and family. Chris was always the life of the party and never missed an opportunity to lend a helping hand. He was a dedicated provider for his family, which through his job, gave him the opportunity to experience some amazing places all over the world in the short amount of time he had.


Beloved husband, father, son, brother, uncle, and friend, Chris will be lovingly remembered and deeply missed by his wife of 20 years Lela and his children whom he adored, Larissa and Cadin. Also mourning his passing are his parents Bea Hiebert, Dan Hiebert (Betty), brothers Sean(Fi Fi), and Wayne. In laws Kathie and Jurgen Schempp, Tonya (Colton) Grant, Mike (Teneil) Schempp, Michelle (Mike) Hager, and Shelley McAllister. As well as several nieces and nephews who will miss him terribly.


A funeral service is scheduled for (2:00pm) on Thursday, February 28, 2019 at Our Saviors Lutheran Church (with overflow seating) at the Hussar Community Hall and the Hussar Sundowners. There will be an open lunch to follow at the Hussar Community Hall.


In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made to the Chris Hiebert Memorial Fund that has been set up at the Chinook Credit Union. (Donations can be made at any Chinook Credit Union Branch).
