(February 17, 1935 - September 26, 2019)
Robert Fredrich Sakowsky of Camrose, Alberta, passed away on Thursday, September 26, 2019 at the age of 84 years.
Left to cherish his memory are his step-children Patricia (Larry) Laschowski of Round Hill, Colleen McCorry (Terry Letwin) of Edmonton, George (Pat) McCorry of Edmonton, and Irene (Roger) Hansman of Camrose; daughters Cindy Womacks of Lloydminster and Penny Favel; daughter-in-law Kerry McCorry of Red Deer; son-in-law Bernie (Cindy) Gorniak of Tofield; nineteen grandchildren; numerous great and great-great grandchildren; brother Cecil (Sophie) Sakowsky of Edmonton; and sister Betty (Joe) Chimko of Edmonton.
Robert was predeceased by his wife Rose, parents Fred and Nancy, sister Phyllis, brothers Julian and Emil, step-daughter Helen Gorniak and step-son Fred McCorry.
Bob worked for Cummins Electric and AGT - both positions had him travelling across northern Alberta. It was while working for AGT that he met Rose in Camrose and they got married. Bob then made Camrose his permanent home. He later worked for Camrose Cable TV until his retirement.
Bob and Rose enjoyed travelling, (especially camping), gardening, cooking together and spending time with family. Family times were special to him - be it a wiener roast at the acreage or a big family Christmas dinner for 40. Robert loved working with his hands, be it building a cook shack, crafting bird houses and sewing.
A quiet, humble man, Bob spent his life doing for others and will always be remembered for his kind, giving and loving ways.
A Funeral Service was held at 11:00 a.m., Friday, October 4, 2019 from the Burgar Memorial Chapel with Rev. Brian Hunter officiating. Interment has taken place in the Camrose Cemetery.
The family would like to express gratitude to the doctors and staff of Unit 2 at St. Mary's Hospital, and invite family and friends to make memorial contributions in Robert's memory to St. Mary's Hospital Unit 2 Palliative Care.
