Sunday’s Obituary: John A. Demosky

John, my father-in-law Bill’s cousin, was the youngest child of Alex and Annie (Dorofaeff) Demosky. His parents, who were Russian Doukhobors, immigrated to Canada in 1899 and settled in Saskatchewan. John died on 13 March 1968 and was buried two days later in Riverview Cemetery, Kamsack, Saskatchewan.
