Sunday’s Obituary: Alex S. Demosky

Today marks the 36th anniversary of the passing of Alex S. Demosky, a first cousin once removed of my father-in-law Bill Demoskoff.

Alex was the eldest child of Sam and Pearl (Popoff) Demosky, Doukhobor immigrants from Russia. He was born in September 1912 in Buchanan, Saskatchewan, where he lived before moving to British Columbia in the late 1940s.
