In Memory Of Andy Jubinville
On October 21, North Central Livestock (NCL) held a moment of silence in honour of former employee and dear friend Andy Jubinville.
Andy Jubinville was diagnosed with prostate cancer five years ago and recently passed away from the disease at 64 years of age. Along with his brother, Marc Jubinville, Andy Jubinville has a rich history in the farming industry. He worked at NCL for a few years, where his brother is still working. He and his brother also reopened Western Pride Auction Market located in Bonnyville in 1992.
“He was a husband, a father, a grandfather, and a dear friend,” said Len Hrehorets, NCL Owner.
In addition to a few words and a moment of silence for Jubinville’s passing, NCL donated a 576 pound charolais steer to auction off with all proceeds from the auction going towards cancer research.
“He gave me my first job as an auctioneer, and I’d like to thank him for that,” said Dale Dmytriw, who was auctioneering at the event.
Additional sponsors were Veetee Feeders, Lonesome Pine Cattle Company, Sloan Ranches, Anchor Lazy U Cattle Co, River Country Land and Cattle, Harvey Trach, Les Trach, and JGL Livestock. In total, they raised $10,512.
