Sunday’s Obituary: Pete Demosky

Pete Demosky obituary
Pete Demosky obituary, 1987

Pete, my husband’s paternal uncle, passed away twenty-seven years ago on 1 January 1987. He was the second child and eldest son of Wasyl and Luchenia (Tomelin) Demosky, who immigrated to Canada from Russia in 1899.

Pete and his wife Annie, whom he married in 1933, lived in Saskatchewan until they moved to British Columbia in 1941. They had two sons, Allan and Lawrence.

Pete died in Grand Forks, BC, and was interred there in Evergreen Cemetery.
