John Alex Rachkowski

October 17, 1938 - June 4, 2015


Gone Fishing

John passed away peacefully at the age of 76 on June 4, 2015. John was born in Endeavour, Saskatchewan on October 17, 1938 to Stanley and Maggie. He worked on the family farm in Rockford, Saskatchewan then moved to Texada in 1961. He was a mechanic in the mines. He married Marita Gendron in August 1973.

After retiring Dad enjoyed fishing, hunting, camping and gardening. John was a handyman who could fix almost anything. He enjoyed his time spent with family and friends. He was a quiet, gentle and caring man who was always there to lend a helping hand. He will be dearly missed by many.

John was predeceased by his parents Stanley and Maggie, sisters Ann, Emily and Angeline and brothers Mike and Bill. He is survived by sisters Mary, Fran, Olga, Tina and brothers Leo and Wally, his three children D’Arcy (Rhonda), Shawn (Angie) and Tedra (Mike). He had 11 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

Sincere thanks to the staff at Evergreen Extended Care Unit and Willingdon Creek Village. Also special thanks to Dr. Burns for the excellent care of our Dad.

A celebration of life will be held Saturday, June 13 at 4731 Redonda Avenue from 1 – 3 pm.

“Ho Hum”

You will forever be in our hearts, thoughts and memories and will never be forgotten. You are free, Dad. Time to catch the big one! We love you until we meet again.
