Gregg Hodgson, beloved husband of the late Ruby Hodgson, passed away on Friday, January 31, 2020. The Memorial Service will be held on Friday, April 17th at 1:00pm from the Yorkton Memorial Gardens Family Centre with Crystal Bailey, Certified Celebrant, officiating. The interment will follow at the Yorkton City Cemetery. Memorial donations may be made to the SPCA as gifts of remembrance.

Gregg Watson Hodgson was born at home on June 25, 1931 in Humboldt, SK weighing eleven pounds. He was the youngest of four children having one sister and two brothers.
Gregg attended school in Humboldt through to grade twelve. He then worked in the local pharmacy for one year following high school. Following that, Gregg join SaskPower construction for a year installing power poles around Humboldt, Watrous, North Battleford and Stockholm. He was then promoted to the power plant at the Al Cole generating station in Saskatoon and spent three years working there.
In Saskatoon he met Ruby Gronsdahl and they were married on October 3, 1953. Sometimes their buses would pass each other as they went to work. They were married sixty-two years at the time of her passing. In 1956 their daughter Janet was born in Kindersley, followed by Kevin, Paulette and Rodney in Yorkton.
In 1959 Gregg transferred to the natural gas side of SaskPower, working in Kindersley and eventually Yorkton where he retired in 1984.
Gregg was a dedicated family man. He was a dad, proud grandpa and great grandpa. He was a member of the United Church and a Sunday School teacher for years. He enjoyed being a member of the Wildlife Federation Club, the Yorkton Lion's Club and served as its President for two years. Gregg also coached one of the little league baseball teams when his son Kevin was playing. His favourite team was the Blue Jays and he watched them faithfully on TV, even travelled to watch several games with Ruby.
Gregg loved to travel, and took the family on a trip to Expo in Montreal in 1967. During their marriage he and Ruby also travelled to England, California, Las Vegas and Hawaii.
They both loved to be on the lake at their cabin at Crooked Lake where Gregg helped build a small cabin in 1963. They owned a canoe and a pontoon boat and made good use of both of them. He spent weeks at Madge Lake some summers and enjoyed taking people on cruises with the pontoon boat.
As an avid reader, Gregg excelled in history. He also enjoyed visiting museums and had a keen interest in trains. He was also an avid hunter for many years, and enjoyed the friendships he made with his hunting pals.
Gregg was predeceased by his wife Ruby, son Rodney, mother Ruth, father Watson, brothers Bill (Hilda) Howard, (Lou) and sister, Frances Ness.
Left to cherish his memory and honour his life are his three children and their spouses: Janet (Jim) Gorman, Kevin (Terri) Hodgson and Paulette (Charles) McDonald as well as daughter-in-law, Ann Hodgson. His grandchildren: Tyler (Amber) Gorman and their children, Paige, Nash and Jade; Kelly (Cole) Bergquist and son Cade; Tannis (Arlen) Harrison; Matthew McDonald; Joel Gorman; Josh Hodgson and many sisters-in-laws and brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews and friends.
Our family will always love him and miss him.
