Edmund Dawiskiba was born on June 12, 1922 at Honeymoon, Saskatchewan.
On April 26, 1942, he married Susan Bohach. They were blessed with two sons, Tyrone and Marlon.
During the Depression, Edmund and some of his friends hopped a freight train to Toronto in an attempt to find work. He eventually found employment in a suitcase manufacturing company. After several months in Toronto his prairie roots were calling and he returned to Saskatchewan.
In his early married years, Edmund worked as a baker in Prince Albert. He eventually took over the family farm in Honeymoon and over time, purchased two more quarters of land.
He was a self taught accordion player and started up the “Honeymoon Ramblers” orchestra consisting of local friends and musicians playing at many weddings and various social events.
In 1965, he moved his family to the Nipawin area purchasing a farm with the well known local landmark “In God We Trust” elevator.
While farming, he also worked at CSP Foods and was active within the Ukrainian Greek Orthodox Church. In addition to his church involvement, he also maintained the grounds at the church and cemetery.
Edmund was predeceased by his beloved wife Susan (2012), his two brothers Adolph and Walter and his parents Joseph and Anna.
Left to treasure his memory are his son Tyrone and daughter-in-law Sandi; his son Marlon and daughter-in-law Leisa; his three beloved grandchildren Ryan, Carlea and Ainsleigh; his four great grandchildren Brody, Kataryna, Sadie and Gwenna, numerous nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.
Edmund was well known in the community. He is remembered as being…
“a wonderful man”, “humourous”, “caring and loving”, “a good friend”, “kind”, “a gentleman”. We will miss you.
