April 9, 1943 – June 1, 2021

It is with great sorrow we regret to announce the passing of DENNIS TADASHI GOSHINMON. He was the beloved husband of Katie; best dad ever to Darla and Ron, Canako and Collin and Dawn and Kirk; big brother to his favourite, most special sister Diane and Pat; loving Papa/Grampa to Ricky, Blake/Willow, Seth/Nicole, Victoria/Conner and James, Ashley and Robyn; great-grampa to Kaydance and Bailey; and brother-in-law to Bill and Brenda and Jim and Sheila. He will also be missed by numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and course, all of his many, many friends.

Dennis was born in Coaldale to Dorothy and Nobby. Denny grew up in Hardieville, going to school in Lethbridge. His love of music inspired Denny to teach himself to play guitar, which eventually led to Denny starting in the band The Checkers. They performed through Eastern Canada and U.S. This is where the rockstar met the groupie. They were married in Ontario on October 28, 1963, before moving back to Lethbridge to start a family. While working and performing, Denny attended the U of L to obtain his Bachelor of Arts. Dennis worked for many years at both tv stations, the majority being at CFCN as a commercial artist/therapist (he always had someone in the chair sharing some thoughts) until his early retirement. He continued doing art work for many people and businesses around Lethbridge. He also continued to perform with many people and bands, entertaining many, many people.

Denny was a long time member of the Okinawa Society and the Bonsai Club, and was a humble student of the Buddhist temple One of the many things we saw in dad was his attention to people, no matter who you were. He made everyone feel special. He was a great listener and always had the right reply. Right up until the end, he wanted to know how “You” were. Never complaining. We would like to send a special thanks to the nurses for their care of Dad.

As in life, Denny preferred no fuss or attention, no pomp or flair. At his request, there will be no funeral. Instead, he would like everyone to love more, laugh more and live more!

In lieu of flowers, please donate to the cancer society or the charity of your choice.

KLASSEN, Stanley Clifford

August 06, 1944 – June 04, 2021

Our Dad, Stanley Clifford Klassen passed on to heaven on Friday June 4, 2021, after along, courageous 24-year battle with cancer.

Stan was born in Herbert Saskatchewan on August 6, 1944, the 5th of 7 children born to Abraham and Judith Klassen. He was an independent and incorrigible child who grew into a man who positively impacted many lives.

Predeceased by the beautiful love of his life Anne (Neudorf), their first-born infant daughter, brothers Henry, Ben and both his parents. He is survived and will be greatly missed by his children Jeffrey (Deborah), Leslie (Andrea) and Allison Lund (Mikkel) and his adoring grandchildren Abigail, Quintin, Spencer, Sebastien, Kasper, Parker, Piper and Blake. Stanley is survived by his sisters Bertha Peters, Julianna Siemens (Neil), Judy Kehler, Myrvina Wiebe (Dennis) and numerous grieving in-laws, nieces, nephews and friends.

Starting out from humble beginnings, Stanley took a few years off in high school to help build his parent’s house in “Speedy Creek”, Swift Current SK. This experience launched him into a career of sales, entrepreneurship, real estate, Chairman of Lethbridge Regional Health Board, local politics, Church boards and Executive Director of the Southern Alberta Irrigation Association. He loved vacationing with Anne and their family and their multitude of friends.

Above all, his highest achievement in life was being Mom’s best friend, father to his loving children, and grandfather to his adoring grandchildren! Stan had a remarkable life that brought laughter and smiles to the people who had the joy of getting to know him. He will be dearly missed.

A Celebration of Life will be held when family from both Canada and United States are able to join to share stories, retell “Stan” jokes and keep laughing as Dad would want us to do.

To Those I Love (by Isla Paschal Richardson)

If I should ever leave you whom I love,

To go along the silent way,

grieve not,

Nor speak of me with tears,

but laugh and talk

Of me as if I were beside you there.

(I’d come – I’d come, could I but find a way!

But would not tears and grief be barriers?)

And when you hear a song or see a bird I loved,

please do not let the thought of me be sad…

For I am loving you just as I always have…

You were so good to me!

There are so many things to say to you…

Remember that I did not fear…

It was just leaving you that was so hard to face…

We cannot see beyond…

But that I know:

I loved you so – ’twas heaven here with you!

Denis Goshinmon was the most wonderful person! For fifteen years at CFCN we were 15 feet apart. He gave you the most comforting sense of calm. Fun, smart and so talented, I am honored and humbled to have known him!
