Dad loved to work on the farm, do mechanic work, fish, camp, and spend time with his family. He was a hard worker and worked in many occupations throughout his life. I remember many mornings going to the farm to do chores with Dad. I loved getting up early (5am) to go do chores with dad. In the winter we would take turns milking the cow to keep our hands from freezing. Dad and I had a lot of the same interests and so we spent a lot of time together. I loved working on the farm with him, fishing, or just being with Dad. He always encouraged me to work hard and do my best. Dad loved to visit with people and was a faithful home teacher. He was often given young companions and assigned several widow sisters as he would visit with them if they were lonely. He was companions with Douglas Bevans for many years and they had a great friendship. He loved to be with people. He would find someone who had never been fishing and take them, or find someone who had never ridden a horse and take them riding. He loved to sit with or lay on the bed with his grandchildren and tell them stories about when he was a little boy, and they would get out of going to sleep. In his later years he lost his eyesight due to diabetes and he loved to sit in the middle of his family and listen to all that was going on. He could tell who you were by how you walked, just like his grandmother. As a young girl we would play a game on the way home from the farm. I would lay down on the seat of the truck so I couldn't see where we were going and he would take a different route home. I had to guess where we were each time we turned and he would try to mix me up. I was not very successful and he loved to mix me up. We had a lot of laughs about this. One experience with Dad as a young girls was we were riding a horse named Blackie to town from the farm by Uncle Ned's house and it was really hot out. We were in the ditch and walked through a slough area and the horse layed down to cool off. I could lift my legs and not get wet because I was so small, but Dad got soaked. I thought this was really funny, but Dad was not so amused. I remember when I got my first horse that I bought with my own money. I had saved for several years from my paper route and we went to Fort Macleod to a horse sale. A horse would come in the ring and I would say "Is that a good one?" and he would shake his head "no" after quite a few times repeating this a horse came in and he said "this is the one for you" so I bid on her a few times and as soon as the men bidding saw I was bidding they quit bidding against me and I got the horse for the amount I had saved. We took her home and trained her and Dad and I spent a lot of time working with her together. Dad would ride Stretch (his horse) and lead her into the bog and then I would get on. That way if she started to buck she would get bogged down and stop. We did this daily for about 2 weeks and then she was settled down enough to ride out of the bog by myself. I'm sure Dad had a million other things he could have been doing, but he took time to help me train her and I will always appreciate that time with Dad. I loved working with mechanics with him. I never learned much about cars, but I learned a lot about which tools were which and how to use them. A story I heard about Dad after he passed away was about a friend of his that was a surgeon and had somehow lost a finger. Dad was blind at the time and invited him over to talk with him. He offered his finger to him as he was blind and could not use it and a surgeon definitely needed a finger so he offered to give his to him so he could continue his practice. The doctor was shocked and appreciated it but said that Dad's hands were so much bigger than his that it would be like having a hammer for one finger with the size of his other fingers. They both had a laugh and a hug, but the doctor appreciated his willingness to offer his finger. Dad was the best at giving hugs. He was not always an overly affectionate man, but he was a fantastic hugger and it always felt so good and safe to be hugged by Dad. He passed that trait on to his sons as well. One day I was at Dad and Mom's practicing piano for one of Rod's boys baptisms and I had read a book about experiences people had beyond the veil. The book was called "Beyond the Veil" and I told Dad that I had read a book he might like. He asked me the name of it and I told him and he said "Oh, I've already seen it" I was surprised he had already seen the book as it was a new one and said so. He said "No, Sis, I've already seen beyond the veil." My mom came in from peeling potatoes at the sink and said "What?!" He explained that when he was in the hospital in Calgary and was in the operating room he passed away and he went to heaven with his dad Elden and Shelly Redford (who was Peggy's best friend and died around the same time as grandpa Elden). He said the music was better than you could imagine - even better than the Mormon Tabernacle Choir - and he saw his grandma and gave her a hug, but she told him that Elden and Shelly could stay, but he had to go back for a while. He remembers how beautiful it was and how hard it was to go back into his body that he could see on the operating table. He said he was not afraid of dying for this reason. Mom had never heard that story either. She asked him why and he said "It never came up."

I’m grateful to have many memories of my grandpa. I remember yearly camping trips to St Mary’s dam. He loved to be with his family. He was always excited to hear any news from us grandchildren. Especially if it was that we were expecting another great grandchild.

I never knew my great grandpa but my mom told me this story of before I was born the year before I was born and the year that he died he was sitting in a room and said look at that little dark grand baby but no baby was in the room. my mom believed that my great grandpa saw me before I was born because he was so close to the veil and so was I.

1929
Ardell Williams Leavitt se narodil(a) na 9 May 1929
Ardell Williams Leavitt was 10 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.

Ardell Williams Leavitt was 16 years old when World War II: Nagasaki is devastated when an atomic bomb, Fat Man, is dropped by the United States B-29 Bockscar. Thirty-five thousand people are killed outright, including 23,200-28,200 Japanese war workers, 2,000 Korean forced workers, and 150 Japanese soldiers. Nagasaki is the capital and the largest city of Nagasaki Prefecture on the island of Kyushu in Japan. The city's name, 長崎, means "long cape" in Japanese. Nagasaki became a centre of colonial Portuguese and Dutch influence in the 16th through 19th centuries, and the Hidden Christian Sites in the Nagasaki Region have been recognized and included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Part of Nagasaki was home to a major Imperial Japanese Navy base during the First Sino-Japanese War and Russo-Japanese War.

Ardell Williams Leavitt was 28 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.

Ardell Williams Leavitt was 44 years old when Vietnam War: The last United States combat soldiers leave South Vietnam. The Vietnam War, also known as the Second Indochina War, and in Vietnam as the Resistance War Against America or simply the American War, was a conflict that occurred in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia from 1 November 1955 to the fall of Saigon on 30 April 1975. It was the second of the Indochina Wars and was officially fought between North Vietnam and the government of South Vietnam. The North Vietnamese army was supported by the Soviet Union, China, and other communist allies; the South Vietnamese army was supported by the United States, South Korea, Australia, Thailand and other anti-communist allies.

Ardell Williams Leavitt was 52 years old when The first launch of a Space Shuttle (Columbia) takes place: The STS-1 mission. The Space Shuttle was a partially reusable low Earth orbital spacecraft system operated by the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), as part of the Space Shuttle program.
