Tom Romanow
1932 - 2011
The family of Tom Romanow sadly announces his passing on April 18, 2011 at Royal University Hospital, Saskatoon surrounded by his loving family. He is survived by his wife of 55 years Effie (nee Mocknowed) sons Keith (Shawna), Tim (Gaetan), and Mike (Lauralie), daughter Sharon, beloved grandchildren Melissa, Jesse and Kayla and their mother Joanne, his sisters Joyce (Aurel) and Janet as well as sisters in law Louise Buchholz, Bertha and Ramana Romanow and many nieces and nephews. Tom was predeceased by his parents Frank and Mary, brothers Dan, Peter and Walter, and his sisters Rosie, Katie and Julia. Also by his father and mother in law Fred and Elsie and his brother in law Doug. Tom and the family lived in many communities throughout Saskatchewan as Tom was employed as a CN station agent. The family settled in Beechy in 1967, after many years of service Tom retired from the CN in 1986. Tom was a man of many interests and community involvements, notably as mayor of Beechy from 1969 to 1976 and as an alderman from 1996 to 2003. Tom loved amateur sports and this lead him to serve as the President of the Saskatchewan Amateur Hockey Association and also in other executive positions with SAHA from 1967 to 1983. Tom was a lifelong Montreal Canadiens and Saskatchewan Roughriders supporter. He was also very involved with Prairie Lake Regional Park on Lake Diefenbaker where he spent many hours fishing and visiting with other cabin owners. Tom’s wonderful cooking drew his family together for special occasions and celebrations as a family. He generously shared the bounty of his large garden and his skills as a gardener. Tom loved his family and was always happiest when all his children and grandchildren were together. We will forever miss his love and support. The family would like to thank all the staff at RUH ICU for the wonderful care given to Tom and the compassion and support given to his family. In keeping with Tom’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A celebration of his life will take place this summer at Holy Ghost Ukrainian Catholic Church. If friends wish, contributions to the Holy Ghost Ukrainian Catholic Parish Cemetery Fund, c/o Box 59, Montmartre, SK., S0G 3M0 in remembrance. Arrangements have been entrusted to Prairie View Chapel and Crematorium, 242-7884.
