Claude Slogocki, beloved husband of Lorraine of Yorkton passed away on Friday, October 25th 2019 at the Yorkton Regional Health Centre. He was 78 years of age. Claude was born on May 2, 1941 at Canora Union Hospital to Julius and Pauline Slogocki (Fullawka). Claude attended Buchanan School until Grade 10, Grade 11 at St. Joe's Collegiate in Yorkton and graduated from Grade 12 back in Buchanan School in 1960. Then off to the big city of Toronto. He started a job at Canadian Tire in the parts department but he knew bigger things were in store for him back at home. He worked in his Dad's garage along with his brother Florian delivering farm fuel and driving the school bus for the Canora District school unit. On July 21, 1962, he married his high school sweetheart, Lorraine Statchuk, making their home in Buchanan for 10 years. In 1972 an opportunity arose to move to Yorkton and manage Pacific 66 bulk fuel station on York Road, which he operated delivering fuel to gas stations and farms. In 1988 a new chapter began, continuing with his entrepreneur spirit he started a car detailing shop, operating it until his retirement. A soft spoken and quiet man by nature, he was devoted to his faith. Claude had an impeccable work ethic and was a compassionate family man. He loved playing board games, cards and going for bike rides. His pride & joy were his children where he went on many camping, golfing and hockey trips, including a special trip to Finland & Russia. He also had the good fortune to go on an Alaska cruise, Disneyland, Branson music trip and to see the Toronto Blue Jays and many, many trips to Vancouver. Claude's battle with Parkinson's started 13 years ago. With many daily challenges, his quality of life deteriorated to a nursing home-this was the best option for the care he needed. Claude accepted his disease with dignity and class. Although he had many challenges and setbacks, he earned the respect of and was well liked by the nursing staff. Claude was predeceased by his parents Julius and Pauline Slogocki, his in-laws John and Anne Statchuk, Sister Adeline Germann, Brother in law Wally Germann and Nephew Leo Slogocki. Claude leaves to celebrate his life; his loving wife Lorraine and 3 children: Todd (Shawna) Slogocki, Troy Slogocki, and Tara (Dale) Dmyterko. Grandchildren: Anabelle, Jonathan, Julian, Adrian and Eric. Brother Florian (Stephie) Slogocki and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family and friends.

Barrie Bonsal and family extend our sincere condolences to Lorraine, Todd, Troy, and Tara. I know it has been many years since we were neighbours, but I have fond memories of growing up across the street from you and spending all that time playing hockey in your backyard and shooting basketball hoops in your driveway. I also have very fond memories of Claude, especially his kindness and thoughtfulness. He was like a second dad. Our thoughts are with all of you at this difficult time.

Claude was a great guy to look after, and very well liked by the Malinowski house staff. Despite the horrible disease he had a good sense of humour and smile. He'll be missed. Deepest sympathy to you and your family Lorraine. Kris & Lisa Janeson
