It is with great sadness that we announce the loss of Peter Kozakavich, family at his side, on June 14, 2018. Peter was the youngest of seventeen siblings born in Goodeve, Saskatchewan. He completed schooling in Regina, relocated to Saskatoon and embarked on a 45 year career with Russell Food Equipment. For those that did business with or worked with Peter, they can attest to the fact there was a right way to do things, a wrong way, and a P.K. way. Peter enjoyed golfing, walking, gardening, travelling, playing cards with family, and spending time in Waskesiu. Peter was an incredibly giving man always willing to help anyone with anything. No matter the situation you could always count on Peter’s kind nature and smile. Apart from being a loving husband and excellent father, Pete was also loved and adored by his many nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews. In most recent years he was focused on being a particularly excellent Gramps, which we can assure you he was. Peter is lovingly remembered by his wife of 45 years Nancy, son Shane (Charlene ), grandson Declan, siblings Jack Kenton, Andrew Kozakavich, Alice Zwarich, Boris Kozakavich, and Elizabeth Sawchyn. At Peter’s request, there will be no service.
