Federal Veterans Affairs Minister Rey Pagtakhan paid tribute this week to Reaper's valiant efforts.

"It is always sad to hear of the loss of one more hero," he said.

Pagtakhan said the country owes each of the soldiers a continuing debt of gratitude.

"We are really losing a national treasure every time a World War One veteran passes away," added Gabriela Klimes, a spokeswoman for Veterans Affairs in Winnipeg.
