Michael is survived by his beloved wife of fifty-six years, Anne (nee Sowa) and devoted sons Michael Jr.; Kurt (Diana (nee Kress) and precious grandchildren Laura and Tanner (Shaunda) and cherished great-grandson, Jake. He also leaves his sister Anne and brother Henry; as well as many sisters and brothers-in-law; nieces, nephews and friends. Predeceased by his parents Heinrich and Rosalia and brother John. Michael was born July 15, 1926 the eldest of four children to Heinrich and Rosalia Fellinger in the village of Zichgdorf, Banat, Yugoslavia. At the age of nine months they immigrated to Canada and settled in Regina. Michael attended Haultain, Wetmore, Balfour and Central Collegiate. At the early age of ten Michael worked for Purity Meat Market, where he realized his love and passion for the meat business. In 1959 Michael and Anne opened Fellingers Meat Merchants in Regina and later Moose Jaw. They enjoyed many years of business before retiring with their son Kurt and his family carrying on the Fellinger tradition in the Cathedral area.

Condolences to the family may be emailed to reception@speersfuneralchapel.com Who is God? Holy Spirit, God and Father, Mentor, friend and guide. God has been there for us, Through hard times when weve cried. Never a merciless God, When asked He forgives our sins. Never passing judgment, Even if our faith seems slim. He is the ever burning flame, The light within our soul. The tailor of our hearts, Who mends up every hole. A God of love and compassion, Of mercy and of might. He leads us out of darkness, And guides us to lasting light. Laura Fellinger, 1997
