On Friday February 17, 22017, Mr. John Bodnarchuk of Osoyoos passed away peacefully at McKinney Place Extended Care at the age of 91 years.

John was born April 18, 1925 to William and Ann Bodnarchuk on the family homestead at Moon Hills (Oscar Lake) area Saskatchewan. He moved to Prince Albert in 1951 after getting married to Sylvia Korpan.
