GREG OLSHASKI
1960 ~ 2013
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear husband and father, Gregory Stephen Olshaski, on Saturday, June 15, 2013 at the age of 53 years, with his family by his side.
Greg was born April 5, 1960 in Lethbridge, AB to Robert & Dorothy Olshaski, the middle child of five sons. He married the love of his life May (Marianne) in Lethbridge on August 16, 1986. Greg and May were blessed with two children – Ryan Olshaski (November 24, 1994) and Darcy Olshaski (March 5, 1998). The adoration, devotion and dedication to his wife, May, and to his boys, Ryan and Darcy, was truly amazing. They were a bonded family and the amusing “family talks” at supper times will be so missed. He treasured all the time spent with May, Ryan and Darcy and took great pride & joy in being a husband and father and in guiding & supporting his family.
Greg went through the Catholic School system graduating from Catholic Central High School in 1977. Greg was very active in sports and played baseball up through the Little League. He continued with fastball for Lethbridge Council #1490 Knights of Columbus travelling to Rutland, B.C. with his dad and two brothers for many years, winning many trophies and just enjoying the family time spent together.
Greg as well played hockey with the Lethbridge Minor Hockey League and for the CCH Cougars Football team. He has since so enjoyed to just sit, relax and watch hockey with his dear friend Jack.
Greg proudly worked for Olshaski Farms for most of his entire life. Farming was in his blood and he was later employed by Jack Giffen and then One Earth. Greg had just received his Class 1 driver’s license while employed with Serfas Farms Ltd. He was such a hard worker and was sought out by many employers in the farming field.
Like his father, Greg was brilliant with numbers. There was never need for a calculator, no task was too difficult and all were amazed by this ability. Greg admired and missed his father immensely and so cherished his mom. Greg’s family and friends meant the world to him.
Greg loved hunting and has proudly taught his two boys, Ryan and Darcy, in the past numerous years his skills. Every year he travelled to Saskatchewan with his brother-in-law Harry to get his trophy deer.
Greg also loved camping and was the one his family and friends looked up to if there was ever a problem. There were many hours spent sitting around a campfire trying to solve the difficulties of the world. He would host campouts for friends and family at his homestead which all lovingly called “Olshaski Park”.
His humour was extraordinary and you always had a big smile on your face when you were around him. He was unselfish and his focus was always on others around him.
Left with his memory are his dear wife of 26 years, May Olshaski; his dear sons Ryan and Darcy; his dear mom Dorothy Murrell and dear step-father Alex Murrell; his dear mother-in-law Margarete Moch; his dear brothers-in-law & sisters-in-law, Bob & Karen Olshaski, Rod Olshaski & Michele Derry, Ken & Millie Olshaski, Doug & Jacquie Olshaski; his dear brothers-in-law & sisters-in-law, Hanna & Don Cox, Peter & Linda Moch, Helen & Joe Meszaros, Harry & Sue Moch, Debbie Byrne, Danny Byrne, Robert Moch; his dear nieces and nephews Steven & Janine Olshaski, Matthew Olshaski, Candice Cockerill, Larissa Olshaski, Sydney Olshaski, Quinton Cox, Trisha & Kostas D’Agnone, Breanne Cox, Troy Moch, Nicole & James Carefoot, Chad & Kate Eggebrecht, Sean & Heidee Walshe, Brent & Jodi Merriman, Jennifer & Mike Hall, Jessica Byrne, Daneel Byrne, Ashley Moch; as well numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Greg was predeceased by his Grandma Wright, his Grandpa Olshaski, his Grandma Olshaski, his father, Robert Olshaski, his father- in-law, Gerhard Moch, his sister-in-law, Lynn Olshaski, and his nephew, Duane Moch.
The family would like to sincerely thank the emergency staff at Lethbridge Regional Hospital, the STARS helicopter, and the staff at the Foothills Hospital for their kindness & caring towards Greg & his families for the days until his passing.
Greg will be so sadly missed and so lovingly remembered by his dear wife, his dear boys, his mom, his step-dad, his mom-in-law, his brothers, his brother-in-laws, his sister-in-laws, his nieces, his nephews, his uncles & aunts, his cousins and his dear friends. Greg leaves behind a legacy of fond memories and a family who dearly loved him and who will miss him terribly. Our pain at losing Greg is enormous. Greg was a very caring and loving husband and father. He is a one of a kind wonderful special man and he will never be forgotten. His spirit will live on in our hearts and minds forever. Greg is now at rest and peace. We love you so very much Greg and we will miss you every single moment of every single day. Our lives will be so empty without you.
Vigil Rites will be held at 7:00 pm on Friday June 21, 2013 at MARTIN BROTHERS RIVERVIEW CHAPEL, 610- 4 Street South, Lethbridge, AB, led by Deacon Cliff Bogdan.

RON CHIZMAZIA
1940 ~ 2013
Ron Chizmazia, born on November 9, 1940, beloved husband of the late Judy Chizmazia, sadly passed away on Monday, June 17, 2013.
Ron is survived by his daughter Jodi (Allen) Klassen and their children Blaine (Andrea), Reid, Jeff and Robyn, and his son Mike (Charity) and their children Brayden, Brodi, Keegan, Jade and Harlee, his mother Vilma Chizmazia; sisters Beatrice (Glen) Steele, Eileen (Stewart) Ford, Peggy and Jamie (Reg) Kucey, brother-in-laws Ron (Donna) Siemens, Rick (Dorothy) Siemens and all of his nieces and nephews. Ron was predeceased by his father Jim Chizmazia, mother and father-in-law Jake and Kathy Siemens and sister-in-law Jean Sampert.
His kids called him Upya and his grandkids called him Granpa. It was evident that his grandchildren held a special place in his heart. In his younger years Ron traveled the rodeo circuit. He was a bull rider and rode bareback. While in Texas, he went to school to become a farrier.
Ron grew up in Readymade where he farmed for many years. He worked hard and had a tremendous amount of respect for people who did the same. Ron was well known for the size of his hands. When he would give someone a handshake they often did a double take.
Ron loved sports, whether he was participating in them or just watching them on TV, when the Calgary Stampede was on, you knew not to phone or stop by in the evenings because he was glued to the TV, watching rodeo highlights.
In the past year, Ron enjoyed travelling to Brazil and Argentina on Farm tours. Ron will truly be missed by his family and friends.
The family would like to thank Dr. Winder, Dr. Zielke, Dr. Low and the nurses for their excellent care of Ron.
A Celebration of Ron’s life will be held at the READYMADE COMMUNITY CENTRE, Readymade, Alberta at 2:00pm on Friday, June 21, 2013. A private family graveside service will be held prior to the Celebration of Ron’s Life.
